Florida GOP Senate Candidate To 99 Percent: ‘Get Off Your Ass And Go Get A Job’

Speaking at a Tea Party convention in Florida this weekend, GOP Senate candidate Craig Miller said Occupy Wall Street protesters should “get off your ass and go get a job.” Miller is the former CEO of Ruth’s Chris steakhouse and was the president of the National Restaurant Association a few years after GOP presidential candidate Herman Cain left the organization. Last month, Adam Hasner, who is also running for the Republican Senate nomination from Florida, called Occupy Wall Street supporters “anarchists,” “extremists,” and “thugs.” As the Florida Independent points out, just 12 percent of protesters are unemployed, according to Fast Company.
