From The Washington Post’s Kelsey Snell:

Many House Democrats will be sporting a small sign of protest to today’s inaugural ceremonies: matching buttons in support of the Affordable Care Act. A spokesman for House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Democrats wanted to “wear a sign of solidarity” with President Obama’s signature health care law, which Republicans have vowed to repeal. The buttons say #ProtectOurCare.
