I love this.
Miss DC shocked the liberal universe last night when she affirmed that affordable health care is not a right, but a privilege.
And then she went on to win the whole thing and become Miss USA!
Liberal heads exploding! Just listen to the end of this video:

CNN – The newly crowned Miss USA is attracting attention after arguing that health care is “a privilege” for working people, not a right for all American citizens.
Kara McCullough, a physical scientist at the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission, was asked Sunday during the Las Vegas pageant’s question-and-answer section if “affordable health care for all US citizens is a right or a privilege.”
“I’m definitely going to say it’s a privilege,” the 25-year-old said. “As a government employee, I am granted health care and I see first-hand that for one to have health care, you have to have jobs.”
“So therefore, we need to continue to cultivate this environment that we’re given the opportunity to have health care as well as jobs to all American citizens worldwide,” she added.
McCullough, who represented Washington, DC, in the pageant, attracted quite a bit of social media pushback from those who believe that health care is a right that should be granted to all American citizens.
Jersey was ROBBED! I was on board with D.C. until she gave that sad, uneducated answer on healthcare. Nope!! #MissUSA
