Why is this good news?

Because it means capitalism is in its death throes. If the center of the empire can't even boast high life expectancy, it's all over for capitalism. Until now, the US has enjoyed unmatched privilege at the expense of all the countries it colonizes. That's changing. The real effects of the US's totalitarianism are finally hitting home. The US people are finally being affected by the US's brutal policies.

The only way anything will change is if capitalism stops being better than the alternatives for the US people. Only the US people can stop their empire's path of destruction. And they won't do it until they have no choice but to.

I can't read the article btw because it's region locked.
