Thursday, the Supreme Court ruled to uphold the Affordable Care Act. The scene outside the court as the decision was unveiled was lively and impassioned.

AUDIE CORNISH, HOST:

From NPR News, this is ALL THINGS CONSIDERED. I'm Audie Cornish.

MELISSA BLOCK, HOST:

And I'm Melissa Block. The Supreme Court decision today to uphold the president's health-care overhaul law drew strong reaction around the country - including right outside the court, where a small sea of supporters and opponents had gathered.

(SOUNDBITE OF VARIOUS DEMONSTRATIONS)

BLOCK: We heard there from Kathy Phillips(ph) of St. Louis and before her, Charquinta McCray(ph) of Newport News, Va.; Eric Robison(ph) of Spokane, Wash.; and Ryan Hecker(ph) of Texas, outside the Supreme Court today.
