Within the health care industry, which accounts for about 18 percent of the economy, a Donald Trump presidency is being viewed with trepidation. Insurers, pharmaceuticals and hospitals would all stand to lose if reversal of Obama’s health care law leads to a surge in the number of uninsured Americans. Even if the Affordable Care Act is rife with complexity and complications for health care companies, it does offer the long-term prospect of more paying customers.

  • Virginia's newly-elected openly transgender state representative: Discrimination is a disqualifier

    Virginia Democrat Danica Roem, the US’s first openly transgender state representative, gave a thank-you speech following the announcement of her win on Tuesday, November 7. She beat Bob Marshall, who had served in Virginia’s House of Delegates since 1992. Marshall introduced a “bathroom bill” earlier in the year, requiring people to use only the restroom that matched their biological sex. The bill was not passed. This video shows Roem’s victory speech at the election night watch party. “To every person who’s ever been singled out, who’s ever been stigmatized, who’s ever been the misfit… This one’s for you,” Roem said to a crowd of cheering supporters.
