The Supreme Court case weighing healthcare reform legislation has drawn attention nationwide, attracting protesters — some of whom slept outside to secure a spot inside the courtroom, where cameras are not allowed — and plenty of controversy.
Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) spoke at a rally organized by Tea Party Patriots in front of the court on Tuesday morning, blasting the law under consideration as “socialized medicine."
But Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) tweeted a picture with protesters holding signs in favor of protecting the healthcare legislation.
The case also drew out Sen. John Kerry (D-Mass.), who tweeted that he hasn’t “been to court arguments since bush v gore” in 2000.
