Miss USA Kara McCullough Says Healthcare is a 'Privilege' Not a 'Right,' Twitter Reacts

New Miss USA Kara McCullough is causing a stir on social media with the answer to one of her questions during the top five of the competition.

Miss District of Columbia – who was crowned the winner moments ago – was asked if US healthcare is a right or a privilege.

“I’m definitely going to say it’s a privilege. As a government employee, I’m granted health care. And I see firsthand that for one, to have health care, you need to have jobs, so therefore we need to continue to cultivate this environment so that we’re given the opportunities to have health care as well as jobs for all Americans worldwide,” she said. Of course, the healthcare debate is ongoing in America and Donald Trump is working to repeal Obamacare.

    In any civilized country every citizen has a right to health care. The US is not among those and it’s shameful.

    As a DC girl I’m so disappointed in her. But then this pageant used to be owned by Trump so who is surprised?

    “…as well as jobs for all Americans worldwide”
    Another dumb dumb. Let me help you out: the world is more than America and the world owes nothing to Americans. We’re responsible for what we do with our own country. I see, also, since you need to have a job to have healthcare, all the children aren’t working hard enough so f-’em. Let’s bring back child labor.

    Typical government employee getting all of her (generous) benefits at taxpayers’ expense….excuse me….she was GRANTED those benefits, while the rest of us peasants should feel privileged to take what we can get. Nice way to start your reign, honey.

    How the hell did such a horrible Donald Trump supporting deplorable become Miss USA? At least she is black and in Trump’s America she will basically get the rights and healthcare of a low class citizen like she deserves.

    You do realize that there are Americans who work around the world, right? i guess you think the only Americans that matter are the ones who live on U.S. soil or something. Then again it appears you think goverment healthcare if some how free.

    Over $15 billion a year could be saved with health care costs if the damn lawyers and politicians would agree with Tort Reform.

  • Pitysaurus_rex

    What about the ones that have jobs but no fucking health care because they work for a small business?

    I guess fuck them too, along with the children, elderly, and the disabled who aren’t able to work.
