Protesters chanted, "Kill the bill," as they awaited speeches by Republican leaders on Thursday. The campaign-style event kicked off a daylong, GOP protest against the legislation, which Democrats hope to pass in a historic vote Saturday.

The protesters gathered on the lawn near the West Front of the Capitol. One carried a sign reading, "Waterboard Congress." Other signs said, "Vote no to government-run health care."

Inside the Capitol, legislative action continued in the House and the Senate.
