New Miss USA Controversy Explodes: Rejects Liberal Dogma

Craig Huey Healthcare 11 Comments

Miss District of Columbia Kara McCullough won the Miss USA title. But the liberals didn’t like her conservative answers in the question rounds.

Her thought crimes? Saying health care is a privilege, not a right.

Here is what she said:

Julianne: District of Columbia, you’re up. Do you think affordable health care for all U.S. citizens is a right or a privilege and why?

Miss DC: 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 a job. Therefore, we need to continue to cultivate this environment that we’re given the opportunities to have health care as well as jobs to all the American citizens worldwide

 

The last question given to each of the three finalists was about the meaning of feminism.

Terrence: What do you consider feminism to be, and do you consider yourself a feminist?

Miss DC: As a woman scientist in the government, I would like to lately transpose the word feminism to equalism. I don’t really want to consider myself — try not to consider myself like this die hard, you know, like, oh, I don’t really care about men, but one thing I want to say, though, women, we are just as equal as men when it comes to opportunity in the workplace.

And I say firsthand I have witnessed the impact that women have in leadership in the medical sciences as well as in the office environment, so as Miss USA, I would hope to promote that kind of leadership responsibility globally to so many women worldwide.

 

Wow. She won despite being politically incorrect.

 

What do you think?

  1. Of course she believes “Healthcare is a privilege”—she works for the government and so she has hers; So why should she care about the rest of those who don’t work for the government or a very large nanny employer—both of which provide health insurance, retirement plans, extensive sick leave and vacations. Why should she care about others who aren’t fortunate enough to be in her shoes. What about the multi-millions who are self-employed or work for small employers and can’t get health insurance? Should they continue going to the emergency rooms for very expensive, inefficient treatment to be paid for with our diminishing Medicare money. There has to be a comprehensive healthcare plan for everyone, and it isn’t Obamacare; And, it certainly isn’t what Trump came up with either—it is worse than Obamacare. I am quickly losing the credibility I gave to Trump. I supported him wholeheartedly, but if he pursues his course on healthcare he will definitely be a one term President.

    1. Sir, please define what makes healthcare a right? I don’t think people in this country understand what a “right” and a “privilege” really means. Healthcare is not written in our Constitution as an “inalienable right endowed to us by our Creator”, so where did it being a “right” come from and who determined it as such?

      Whose responsibility is it to make sure that individuals and family members have health insurance regardless of whether they can afford it or not? Since when did it become the responsibility of the federal government and/or the states? Since when did the federal government take the place of the individual person to care for their own life–having health insurance coverage being a part of it?

      These are real valid questions that need answers–answers that need to be confirmed by what the Constitution says and not by what liberals/progressives/socialists/Marxists, or even what conservatives or others say. Ponder that….!

      1. Actually, I have “pondered” (and did considerable research) on our broken healthcare system—for many years; And, discussed it at length in a book I wrote. You need to “ponder ” what I said. I never said it was a “right”. However, I did provide the logic for having health insurance made “available” to everyone. Do you think that your utilities are a “right”. How about roads. No they are not a right, however, we don’t live in the 18th. century when the Constitution was written, and we don’t go to the barber for a “bleeding” to cure our ills. Obviously, you either work for a nanny employer who provides you insurance, or more likely, you are very young and have never suffered a serious illness—and, probably don’t think you need insurance. The other possibility: You may be one of those who are irresponsible, have no assets to lien and simply go to the emergency room for every illness, including heart attacks, cancer, etc. , knowing the hospital will be paid out of our Medicare Fund— you know, the money the rest of us paid into our entire working life—and is being depleted quickly because of President Reagan’s ‘EMTALLA Act’—forcing hospitals to take anyone (even illegals) even though they have no means to pay. This can hundreds of thousands of dollars out of the pockets of the rest of us who worked hard to buy a home, and pay taxes. You talk about “responsibility”, but you are clueless about REALITY.

      2. It became a right when Obama was elected and took our country to Socialism. We all know Socialism doesn’t work, so why does everyone expect this to work? You have the right to be freedom, pursuit of happiness and speech as well as the other amendments to our constitution. I wonder if anybody on here has ever read the constitution?

  2. May 15, Miss America says healthcare is a privilege and Liberal go crazy. May 16, Miss America says healthcare should be a right. Apparently, everyone does not have a right to their opinion, unless it is the right opinion. If it is the wrong opinion, pressure will be brought to change it. Miss American appears to have collapsed under pressure.

  3. It is truly disgusting to see how far politics and political correctness has gone and is integrated into every part of our society. And even more disgusting is how political correctness has invaded beauty pageants. I remember as a kid I used to watch the beauty pageants. I didn’t really care much for them because they seem so vain and superficial and frivolous to me but, the contestants were really free to speak their mind and freely answer prepared questions based on how “they” saw things in life or how “they” believed, without the threat of intimidation, hatred and retaliation. It’s so sad how super sensitive people are today. The so-called “tolerant” are really intolerant when it comes to certain hot-button issues. They show their intolerance when not everyone agrees with their views or opinions. Their intolerant actions try to silence people who really do have a mind of their own and know how to use it. Not everyone is going to agree and that should be alright, but it isn’t. Some will even go so far and to try to kill anybody who doesn’t agree. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, entitled to express how they feel, say what they want to say, etc. We may not like it all the time, but according to our Constitution, we all have the right to say what we want whether we agree or not!

    I thank God for all those who choose to speak or act in courage! Keep on doing it especially if it’s the truth! We have Constitutional rights too!

    1. The First Amendment was obviously only intended for Liberals—and, also for the Tea Party and other radical Conservatives. It was not meant for rational people who like to discuss issues in a civil manner. Radical people never have a legitimate or rational opinion, so, they have to resort to violence and, or name calling.

  4. I think she’s extremely intelligent and right on point. I would have almost given her the title of Miss USA based on her remarks alone.
