House Dems Wear ACA ‘Protect Our Care’ Pins To Inauguration

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.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
