None of the republicans responding doesn't surprise me.
I was also glad to see both Hillary and Bernie had similar answers.
I was struck by part of one of Bernie's answers.

I have introduced legislation in the past to create a prize model to spur innovation for new HIV/AIDS medications. Essentially, a company bringing a truly innovative HIV/AIDS treatment to market would receive a cash prize instead of patent protection; the treatment would then be placed in the public domain, allowing generic versions to come onto market quickly. This ensures companies are still compensated for their research and development, while keeping drug prices affordable for all patients. We have seen absolutely incredible advancements in HIV/AIDS treatment over the last thirty years, but the disease can only be managed if patients can afford their medications. "

Interesting responses, although Hilary could do with a few updating pointers - in referring to 'full blown' AIDS, and declaring that people diagnosed with HIV can live "20 to 30 years" without adverse health effects. :)

One thing I've learned over the past 30 + years
Most are not fully educated unless it affects them or someone they care about .
Politicians are no different .
