Dozens of people camped outside the U.S. Supreme Court building for days just to get a chance to walk inside to catch a glimpse of history being made in person. They’re vying for just a few coveted seats to watch the highest court in the land decide the constitutionality of the Affordable Care Act, the historic health reform law enacted in 2010.
Sue Brownsen traveled with her husband to Washington, D.C., from Milwaukee, Wisc., in hopes of securing a seat in the courtroom to watch some of the arguments herself.
The line on Monday morning began to move into the building around 7:30 a.m. There are approximately 50 seats available for the general public. Others are reserved for political leaders and lawyers.
