Viral Miss Texas' Defense of Capitalism Got Big Cheers From Miss USA Crowd
Miss Texas may have finished second in the Miss USA Pageant Sunday night, but she seems to have won the award for best answer.
Ylianna Guerra was asked about the high salaries of American CEOs and whether she would support a law limiting what a CEO could make.
The questioner also noted that CEOs earned salaries of about 300 times the average worker last year.
Guerra's emphatic answer in support of free markets got her a big ovation.
“If you work hard enough, you can attain anything. This is the land of opportunity and CEOs — I believe they work hard enough for their money, so I believe they should be able to attain whatever it is they’re working for.”
Guerra finished runner-up to Miss Oklahoma, Olivia Jordan.
