Trump’s Health Care VS. Women

Before 2010, being a woman certainly was an inconvenience when it came to insurance plans. Sadly, women often had to pay more than men for the same coverage. Only 12 percent of individual market plans covered maternity care, and it was completely legal for insurance companies to refuse coverage to women who were pregnant or might become pregnant in the future.    Image result for women's health care

One of the most admirable aspects of the Affordable Care Act was the fact that it no longer made being a woman a pre-existing condition.

Dear NurSerial Readers,

This article could be construed as political.  Fair enough, it’s an examination of the mental state of the President.  Look further, however: It’s about the relationship between mental health and decision-making.  Narcissism has got to be an incredibly painful condition to have or be around.  The very nature of narcissism is that it distorts the perception of the person affected, often leading to false beliefs about elevated personal power and importance.

This isn’t a good feature in a world leader.
Please read, think about and pass along.
