Washington (CNN) – The conservative activist group FreedomWorks delivered to ranking congressional Democrats what it said are tens of thousands of pages of a petition signed by people opposed to the Affordable Care Act.
The signature health care reform plan from the Obama administration was enacted two years ago Friday, and next week faces a challenge in the U.S. Supreme Court.

Outside the high court Friday morning, about a dozen demonstrators congregated with two carts of boxes they said contained a petition with more than 100,000 signatures. Each took a large stack of the documents out of the boxes and entered nearby Senate and House office buildings to deliver the papers to Democratic leadership.
Spokesman Dean Clancy said their effort is part of a campaign to fight the law at congressional, judicial and constituent levels.
Neither Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, nor House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi were at their offices to receive the demonstrators, and staff declined to meet with them.
