Millionaire Republican Senator Ron Johnson told a group of high school students that healthcare and food are a privilege, not a right according to MSNBC.

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) spoke to a group of high-school students near Milwaukee on Friday morning, and he heard from one student who asked, “Do you personally consider health care as a privilege or a right?” The far-right senator replied: “I think it’s probably more of a privilege. Do you consider food a right? Do you consider clothing a right? Do you consider shelter a right? What we have as rights is life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. Past that point, we have the right to freedom. Past that point everything else is a limited resource that we have to use our opportunities given to us to afford those things.

“Sen. Rand Paul talked about this on the floor of the Senate. He’s a doctor. He said the minute you consider health care a right, well, who’s going to satisfy that right? And those people who have the skills to satisfy that right, what does that make them if they’re forced to provide you with that rightful product or service?”

So nudity is illegal so by default it is an absolute right to have clothes free or bought.

I beg to differ with this rich, pig headed, selfish, greedy piece of snake shit. Our Rights are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. In order to have life you have to have good health and nourishment. To have good health you must have good food. That all comes hand in hand. You have some karma coming to bite you in the a$$ Mr. Greedy Moneybags!
