Health-care crisis solved!!!!

So, I'm watching the Miss USA 2009 pageant. Don't judge. The Cubs game got rained out. And thank sweet Jebus it did, because Miss Arizona may have just solved the healthcare crisis.
The setting -- Final five contestants reach into a fishbowl and pull out a final question. Kenan Thompson of Kenan and Kel/SNL fame came with: Do you think the US should have universal health care as a right of citizenship? Why or why not?
To which Alicia Monique Blanco said, and I quote:
"I think this is an issue of integrity, regardless of which end of the political spectrum that I stand on. I've been raised in a family to know right from wrong and politics, whether or not you fall in the middle, the left or the right, it's an issue of integrity whatever your opinion is, and I say that with the utmost conviction."

Bravo, Miss Alicia Monique Blanco, for solving the issue and not daring to have the guts of Miss California, who just told Perez Hilton, another judge, that marriage should be between a man and a woman.
Oh yeah, in the photo, that's Billy Bush and the maid from My Name is Earl. They were the hosts, and I say that with the utmost conviction.
