Some House Democrats are wearing the pins with the hashtag #ProtectOurCare to the inauguration, according to a spokesman for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
“Members wanted to wear a sign of solidarity with the Affordable Care Act at the Inauguration,” the spokesman, Drew Hammill said in an email.
GOP lawmakers have already started the process to repeal Obamacare, and Republicans have signaled that it will be one of their first priorities once President-elect Donald Trump takes over the White House.
