Members of the Tea Party are camping out in front of the Supreme Court ahead of Monday's oral arguments on the health care law.

Hundreds of Tea Party activists came out ahead of the Supreme Court hearing oral arguments on the health care law on Monday. The renewed energy from the Tea Party stems from voters feeling their rights are being infringed on by the nation's new mandate to buy health insurance.

Lisa Miller, with the Tea Party in Washington, D.C., says the law is just too expensive.

"I think we might as well be the Soviet Union because at that point they can just dictate anything that is quote unquote good for us," she says. "But I think there is a place to take care of the poor on a state and local level and a charitable level, but not at a federal level. And we should never be borrowing money like we are."

About a dozen people are already camping out in front of the Supreme Court ahead of Monday's oral arguments over one of the biggest legal cases in decades.
