An answer to a question posed to a contestant at Sunday’s Miss USA pageant was guaranteed to send steam rushing out of socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders ears, and give conservatives hope for the future of the country.
Ylianna Guerra, Miss Texas USA, was asked about the wealth and income of today’s corporate CEOs who, the questioner noted, earned “around 300 times as much as the average worker salary.”
With that in mind, Guerra was asked if government should “impose boundaries on salaries of executives.”
The young lady from the Lone Star State said, “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.”
Andrea Gallo, a reporter for Louisiana-based The Advocate, tweeted:

Although she made it to the Top 5, she blew it on another question later.
When asked whether the portrait of Alexander Hamilton, who graces the $10 bill, should be replaced with that of a woman, Guerra said she thought not, because all the bills in current circulation bear images of presidents, and we have yet to have a female president.
Neither Hamilton, nor Benjamin Franklin, who’s on the $100 bill, were presidents.
