HEALTHCARE IS A PRIVILEGE - MISS USA 2017
ICHEOKU says yes you heard it right, Miss USA 2017 said that not everyone deserves to have health coverage and that if you want one, go get a job. She emphatically stated that having medical coverage is not a right but a mere privilege which comes with having a job. 25 year old Kara McCullough, former Miss South Carolina State University 2012 and also Miss District of Columbia 2016 won Miss USA 2017 amongst 51 other contestants; and will represent the United States of America in Miss Universe Contest 2017.
In a question and answer session on Healthcare: is it a right or privilege, the beauty queen answered "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. 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.” Miss USA 2017 also redefined feminism to mean "Equalism"; saying “So as a woman scientist in the government, I’d 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’m gonna say, though, is women, we are just as equal as men when it comes to opportunity in the workplace.” Miss USA 2017 has a Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry. ICHEOKU says congratulations to Kara.
