RoJo tells students health care is privilege, not a right

[Updated from Oct. 1, 2017] Monday question: Do the mass shooting victims in Las Vegas have a right to the health care they will need for life because a shooter acquired an arsenal by exercising his Second Amendment rights?
Or else your freedom will be violated because it's like slavery, as his colleague Rand Paul had said.

Keep in mind that we pay the married-into-wealth Tea Party Republican millionaire Johnson $174,000 a year so he can try and try and try again and again to strip people of their health care - - 
Hey, only if you've earned it, or married up to get it!
 - - and then we pay again to fly RoJo home so he can insult the intelligence of students at the high school in the deep-red Waukesha County community of New Berlin where he made his robotically ideological and heartless stand - - and even alluded to a Rand Paul position on health care equating it to slavery, according to WISN TV 12:
Do you personally consider healthcare as a privilege or a right?" one student inquired.
Wisconsin's junior senator did not hesitate: "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 is a limited resource that we have to use our opportunities given to us to afford those things."
Johnson then referred to comments made by Sen. Rand Paul more than six years ago when Paul compared the "right to health care" to slavery.
He said the task of public officials is to create an environment that grows the economy so that more people can enjoy the "privilege" of food, shelter and health care.
