  •  In the South, HIV is now a disease of the poor (1+ / 0-)

    Originally, HIV was a disease that mostly hit gay men and IV drug users. But now, in the South, it's a disease that hits poor people.

    People who get treated for HIV are much, much less likely to infect other people. And now, poor people in expansion states can get on Medicaid and get treatment for their HIV, so they don't infect their children, their partners, and their partners' partners.

    In the South, though, more and more poor people are going to be HIV+. Thanks, Republicans, Proud Party of Spreading Infectious Diseases.
