Miss USA Sparks Twitter Debate By Saying Healthcare Is A ‘Privilege’

The days of Miss USA contestants only being known for their looks are over!

Remember Miss Teen South Carolina?

She tried to answer why 1/5th of Americans couldn’t locate the United States on a map.

Her response “like…such as….in South Africa…and the Iraq, everywhere like, such as…I believe that they should…our education over here in the U.S. should help the U.S…should help the South Africa, should help the Iraq and Asian countries.”

Huh? Say what?

The question and answer period was always the most entertaining… but not exactly the most informative.

But Miss Washington D.C. (now Miss USA) changed that portion of the pageant, elevated the conversation, and really set off liberals.

The question posed to her: Do you think affordable healthcare for all U.S. citizens is a right or a privilege and why?

According to The Hill, Kara McCullough responded:

“I’m definitely going to say it’s a privilege,” said McCullough, who also works as a scientist at the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission. She added that that Americans shouldn’t be forced to pay for other people’s healthcare.

“As a government employee, I’m granted healthcare. And I see firsthand that for one, to have healthcare, you need to have jobs, so therefore we need to continue to cultivate this environment so that we’re given the opportunities to have healthcare as well as jobs for all Americans worldwide,” McCullough said.

Liberals immediately went nuts on Twitter over McCullough’s response.

“Miss D.C. was my fav but…not after that answer. Everyone has a right to healthcare” and other similar Sanders-like responses plagued Twitter feeds.

But, as one bright Tweeter stated, “CHILL FOLKS, Freaking out about Miss DC’s answer on healthcare/ She’s just saying that you need to pay for it it’s not free”.

Exactly. It isn’t free.

Someone needs to pay for it… which is why the new Miss USA emphasized the importance of employment.

Someone send Kara McCullough a thank you card.

Please.
