Romney supporters tell Occupy protesters to ‘get a job!’
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney found himself being “mic checked” by Occupy Wall Street protesters Monday night at one of his last campaign rallies ahead of the Iowa caucuses.
While speaking to to about 600 people in Clive, Romney was interrupted by protesters reportedly associated with the Occupy Wall Street movement.
“Mic check!” on protester yelled, followed by something about Romney’s corporate ties.
But before the demonstrators could finish their point, they were cut off by Romney supporters chanting, “Mitt is it! Mitt! Mitt! Mitt!”
“Citizens United is not part of the Constitution!” the protesters continued.
“Get a job!” a Romney supporter yelled back. “Go to work!”
“Hey, you guys, isn’t it great to live in a country where people can express their views?” Romney said, laughing.
