Science:

The epidemic of acquired immunodeficiency syndrome was first recognized in the United States. As clinicians from Los Angeles, California, reported in the 5 June 1981 issue of Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report, they had seen odd immune problems and opportunistic infections in five young “active homosexuals.” Similar reports soon came in from all over the country and the world, making it clear that AIDS affected heterosexuals and homosexuals alike and also spread from mother to child and via tainted blood products and dirty needles….
Science is focusing this special HIV/AIDS issue on America, now home to an estimated 1.2 million HIV-infected people — many of whom have little in common with the original five gay men in Los Angeles. The Deep South has become the epicenter; blacks — gay and straight — face a far higher risk of becoming infected than whites, and poverty is a major driver for all races.
From: Introduction: HIV/AIDS in America

“AIDS is now the leading cause of death for African-American women between the ages of 25 and 34 and the primary killer for all African Americans in the 19-44 age group” —  Robert Fullilove, Columbia University (via nprfreshair)

Cartoon by John Cole, Scranton Times-Tribune (View more cartoons by Cole)

The New York Times:

The ruling was a loss for Mitt Romney, who was left fumbling for a cogent response, and will leave him even more vulnerable to attempts by Mr. Obama to remind Americans that, when he was governor of Massachusetts, he championed a health care reform that looks very much like Mr. Obama’s law. Mr. Romney’s argument, that his reform was right for one state but Washington does not have the power to impose it on the other 49, was refuted by the Supreme Court ruling.
From: A Moderate Ruling With Risks Ahead

The Wall Street Journal:

The presumptive GOP nominee may have thought he could run solely on the economy, but now ObamaCare must be central to his campaign. He is at a disadvantage.

Mitt Romney held a presser trashing the Supreme Court’s health care decision. Here’s what it looked like.
(h/t to the AP’s Philip Elliott)

Not only has the proportion of voters who rate Mitt Romney as ‘very negative’ climbed to an all-time high, according to the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal Survey.
Fifty eight percent of Romney voters say their vote is more against Barack Obama than for Romney (35%), whereas only 22% of Obama voters say they’re more against Romney than for Obama (72%).
In other wordclouds, the American people neither want nor care for Romney.

OMG. Mitt Romney: “What the court did not do on its last day in session, I will do on my first day if elected President of the United States. And that is I will act to repeal Obamacare.”

Repeal and Replace Romney as the GOP Standard-Bearer
Mitt Romney not only pioneered the national version of Barack Obama’s health-spending plan, he has also made it harder for the Republican Party to challenge Barack Obama with any integrity by flip-flopping about his role in creating the plan.
Today’s court decision further highlights the fact that Romney is a weak candidate to represent the Republican Party at this critical moment for our economy and in the history of our nation.
Act now to show your support for a real leader at the 2012 Republican National Convention.

The Economist:

Introducing the Obama effect
In 2014, when Barack Obama’s reform expands insurance, spending will jump by 7.4% … By 2021 spending on health will reach $4.8 trillion, 19.6% of GDP. The government will pay for nearly half.
From: Health spending projections: Up, up and away

Both Mitt Romney and Obama fail to understand a fundamental truth about the economy: while health is a public good (i.e., non-excludability, non-rivalry), health care is a private good.

The biggest disappointment of Barack Obama’s term is how his top priority has been health spending, thus throwing the economy off track for jobs to recover after the 2008 financial crisis in housing.

Mitt Romney is also proving to be ineffective with the ongoing housing crisis.
