Kara McCullough wins Miss USA after unpopular answer about health care

On Sunday night, Miss USA pageant winner Kara McCullough ignited a huge firestorm debate when she said that health care was a “privilege” and not a right.

While competing as Miss District of Columbia, McCullough talked about health care in relation to job creation, saying, “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,” McCullough, who is a scientist at the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, added.vv

The comments sparked major backlash online, especially considering the fact that Republicans recently pushed through the American Health Care Act (AHCA) in a controversial move that had not been scored by the Congressional Budget Office to see what the cost of the bill would be and how many Americans stood to lose health care coverage.

“Miss DC was my fav but … not after that answer,” wrote Twitter user Charlsley Carey. “Everyone has a right to health care.”

 “Well I guess poor people don’t deserve health care because the new Miss USA said it was a privilege,” tweeted Kathy Lovett.
