Since "RomneyCare" Massachusetts has ended the HIV/AIDS epidemic, and no one notices: 1) No cases among infants in the past 5 years - NONE; 2) a sharp drop from 1200 to 400 "reported cases" overall obscures an even sharper drop of "new infections" to (probably) less than 200 this year, small enough to reflect visitors. We did this using tools now in ObamaCare - guaranteed coverage by insurers and rapid treatment of patients who took low risk HIV+ test results. Treatment reduces infectivity by over 90%: hence, virtually no new cases. At a cost of $400,000 per case from diagnosis to death, this represents a savings of at least $400,000,000 PER YEAR! YET YOUR ADMINISTRATION HAS YET TO DO A COST-BENEFIT OF THIS IMPACT. When do you plan to do it? After Ryan & Romney abolish the opportunity to take it national and international?
