Outside the Supreme Court, emotions ran high as people reacted to the court's decision to uphold the individual insurance requirement at the heart of President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.
The scene was sometimes circus-like. Two belly-dancers accompanied with drum and flute sashayed against the Obama health care reform law. A tea party George Washington, garbed in colonial regalia, called for another revolution. There was even a life-sized mannequin of Jesus Christ.
Initial reaction among the law's opponents was positive, but those cheers turned to jeers as the fuller interpretation of the ruling was released. "We cannot trust the president or the Congress to protect our Constitution," said one Tea Party activist.
That was the word from the Tea Party after hearing what they see as a very disappointing ruling by the Supreme Court this morning. They say they will continue their fight in Congress, in the courts, and in the ballot box.
Meanwhile, a few feet away, folks that support the president's health care reform were cheering and organizing chants of "Obamacare is here to stay."
