The decision

"The decision" Continued...

President Barack Obama called Solicitor General Donald Verrilli Jr., who argued the cases before the court (and came under criticism for his performance), soon after the ruling to congratulate him. But Tea Party protestors outside the court shouted, "Just wait 'til the elections in November 2012!"

Meanwhile, Mitt Romney's campaign announced that the GOP challenger had raised $1 million in the two hours after the ruling was announced. (For more on the ruling's election year implications, see "It's 2010 again," by Edward Lee Pitts.)
