Miss USA winner Kara McCollough said that affordable health care is a privilege, not a right, before she won the pageant.
Miss USA contestant and eventual winner Kara McCollough said during the question-and-answer of the pageant on Sunday night that affordable health care for all U.S. citizens is “a privilege,” instead of a right.
Host Julianne Hough asked McCollough if she believes affordable health care is a privilege or a right, and McCollough did not equivocate in her answer.
“I’m definitely going to say it’s a privilege,” McCollough said.
McCollough emphasized the need for economic growth to support a sustainable health care system.
“To have health care, you need to have jobs. So we need to cultivate this environment that we’re given the opportunity to have health care as well as jobs to all the Americans,” McCollough said.
The contestant from Washington, D.C. went on to win the entire pageant.
