Curly Hair, Don’t Care! Miss District Of Columbia Survives Healthcare Slip, Crowned Miss USA 2017

(SL) – Back to Back by Drake should’ve rang out following the 2017 Miss USA Pageant. It was a good show with a very diverse group of ladies. But as they were informed by Pageant officials early in the week. They only needed one of the.

What’s more than their dresses, how fit they are those swimsuits and even their occupation or education status is where these young women come from. What they have overcome.  Kara McCullough definitely has a story to tell. Some of it was share through FB Mother’s Day dedication to her mother.

Happy Mother’s Day to the strongest woman on earth. You never allowed your circumstances to define or control you. I often think about how you raised and loved three children that aren’t biologically yours. And when people asked you how many kids you have you proudly respond, “Five.”Image may contain: 1 person, sitting and childve.” That’s a true testament of a mother’s love. Thank you for taking me and my siblings around the world to experience worldwide culture. Thank you for having my back even when I was wrong. Thank you for teaching me to never limit myself. Thank you for calling me every morning to talk before class and work. Thank you for instilling qualities of a leader, team player, and lover. I love you forever and always. Just know everyday is YOURS. I LOVE YOU.

Kara McCullough works as a physical scientist at the United States Nuclear Regulatory Commission. In a recent interview with Refinery 29, McCullough was asked why she decided to go against the smooth blowout pageant trend. She said, “You answered it right there! With the paradigm shift of the competition, formerly a pageant, now a competition, we are highlighting aspects of a modern woman.”
The Top 3 Also Included:
Miss Minnesota and Miss New Jersey. NJ was a strong contender, but in the end it would be D.C. McCullough also funds a program called Science Exploration for Kids on her own. She tells the outlet, “I go to the schools to do science projects, tutoring, and presentations… I hope and pray these moments fuel tgettyimages-651939714hem for their entire lives.”
Deshauna Barber, the reigning Miss USA 2016, was originally Miss District of Columbia USA. She recently spoke to Fox about what it feels like to hand over the crown.
“Excited, but sad and anxious. Combination of feelings when you’re passing over your reign.
You feel accomplished and humble and thankful for the experience. I feel lucky to be able to crown the next winner of 2017.”

While there was plenty to celebrate in the final moments, the final three ladies went through several big tasks before a winner was crowned, but Kara was the one who walked away with the crown.

Miss Minnesota was the second runner-up and Miss New Jersey was runner-up for the title.

In the Final Question round, the final three woman were each asked, “What do you consider feminism to be?” One comment about Health Care had fans nervous for a moment. McCullough believes that Health Care is a privilege not a right. was asked whether affordable health care for all U.S. citizens is a privilege or a right, and she said it’s a privilege.

C_1MPwBXgAAA52nKara said, “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, so therefore we need to continue to cultivate this environment so that we’re given the opportunities to have health care as well as jobs for all Americans worldwide.”

Girlllllll! With #MissUSA being a top trending item on Twitter, plenty of those tweets featured complaints about Miss D.C. losing the social media crowd by stating her beliefs that viewed affordable healthcare as a privilege.

Miss District of Columbia was amazing throughout the competition tonight…she definitely gets my vote!”

“I’m conflicted. I’ve been pulling for Miss DC from the beginning but her answers were… questionable. But Miss NJ killed that part…

“Even though D.C. just lost my vote, her dress is beautiful though .”

“Miss !! Brains&beauty. Nothing in life is free, healthcare = while we do strive to help as many Americans as we can!

“Let’s go ! You are fighting for your beliefs! It’s time to stop having politically correct beauty pageants!

“Miss District of Colombia would have my vote!

“I voted for Miss D.C. 55 times and then she said that healthcare was a privilege and not a right…bye .”

“Wasn’t a huge Miss D.C. Fan until I heard her answers. Now I’d be perfectly okay if she won. Loved her answers

“What!? D.C. STILL WON WITH ALL THOSE HORRIBLE ANSWERS!? Well I guessed right I guess

“Well that’s America today. A POS who says health care is a PRIVILEGE wins . I’m done.”

The Judges on the other hand weren’t swayed. Your Miss USA 2017 is Miss District Columbia, Kara McCullough

The Trumpcare Debacle That We Knew Would Happen And How Steve Bannon Wants Trump To Keep Enemies List Behind It

(SL) – Trumpcare had no chance of being implemented because simply put, Healthcare isn’t like turning on a light switch. It’s difficult and not something that can be constructed overnight.

New York Magazine reports,  The American Health Care Act is a truly horrendous piece of legislation. But it did not become the vehicle for the Obamacare repeal effort because Trump, or Ryan, or anybody insisted on it over some other option. It became the repeal bill because nobody in the Republican Party had a better idea.

Screen-Shot-2017-03-24-at-1.57.31-PM-800x430Reforming the health-care system is an inherently daunting project. What makes health care so resistant to change is that, the worse the system gets, the harder it is to change. More waste means more profit centers with an interest in protecting their income. And more uninsured people means more anxiety for those who do have insurance about losing it, and hence more resistance to change. The political miracle of Obamacare was its ability to design a way to cover the uninsured and to pay for the coverage in a politically viable fashion. The law found a way to solve a political problem that had frustrated would-be reformers for decades.

And they accomplished it against the ruthless opposition of a united party that has used every demagogic method to undermine it — in Washington, in the states, and in the courts.obamacare-trumpcare915If Republicans had not launched a legal battle to allow states to deny Medicaid coverage to their citizens, and then cruelly taken up the opportunity to do so; sabotaged small but crucial risk-corridor payments to encourage insurer participation; and denied funds for outreach to exchange customers, it would be functioning better than it is. Still, it is functioning.
