Miss USA Kára McCullough Clarifies Her Controversial Comments About Healthcare as a 'Privilege'

Miss USA 2017 Kára McCullough made some extremely controversial comments about healthcare in American that had the Internet outraged.

“I’m definitely going to say it’s a privilege. As a government employee, I am granted health care and I see firsthand that for one to have health care, you need to have jobs,” Kara said during the pageant, which aired over the weekend.

“I am a woman, I’m going to own what I said. I am privileged to have health care and I do believe that it should be a right and I hope and pray moving forward that health care is a right for all worldwide,” she said on Good Morning America today. “I am privileged to have health care. I want people to see where I was coming from. Having a job, I have to look at health care like it is a privilege.”
