Miss USA ‘clarifies’ her views on health care, says it is a ‘right’ after all

It didn’t take long for Kára McCullough, Miss USA, to recant her opinion on whether health care is a right or a privilege. (When the question was posed to her at the beauty pageant Sunday, she unequivocally chose Door 2). It’s hard to say what accounts for her almost instantaneous change of heart, but change she did.

As a guest this morning on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” McCullough was given a second chance at the question by host Michael Strahan, and she used the opportunity to “clarify” her original viewpoint that health care is a privilege. Maybe a followup question that Strahan might have asked was whether she thinks clarify means “reverse” or “flip,” because that is what she did. She for yourself:

A question that now seeks an answer that won’t be forthcoming is whether she flip-flopped because she received so much flak from the Left or because, as Strahan intimates, she misunderstood the question. Insofar as she works at the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission, I hope devoutly it’s not the latter. The question isn’t that hard, and anyone who can read and is familiar with the Constitution knows that health care is not one of the enumerated rights.
