TrumpCare could remove affordable PrEP for many MSM, especially low income and minorities

Huffington Post has a rather alarming story about “TrumpCare” (so to speak) and HIV prevention, by Spenser Mestel.

Essentially because of the mentality that among gay men this is “behavior based”  need(as George Will once said) there will be a lot of pressure to allow insurance companies not to cover it.  And those thrown off insurance and likely to wind up with infection will be more likely to be minority and low income men.

Note the tone of the article, in terms of ending HIV once and for all.  PrEP is supposed to prevent infection.
