The Nuclear Scientist from Washington, D.C. Said that Health Care is A Privilege.

When asked onstage about whether she thought health care was a privilege or a right, the 25-year-old scientist from the District of Columbia went with privilege, which caused a political firestorm on social media.

“As a government employee, I am granted health care and I see first-hand that for one to have health care, you have to have jobs,” she said during the pageant. “So therefore, 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.”
