  • Petitioned Mitt Romney

This petition was delivered to:

Mitt Romney

No, Corporations AREN'T People

    1. Sponsored by

      People For the American Way

At a campaign stop in Iowa, Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney told an audience, “corporations are people.”

The remark was hardly a misstep -- Romney persisted in arguing his case that corporations ARE people because corporate profits end up "in the pockets" of people.

Of course some corporate profits end up in the pockets of an ever-shrinking number of people who control an ever-growing portion of our nation's wealth... and some end up going to SuperPACs like the ones that are collecting massive corporate donations to support Romney’s campaign. Simply put, corporations are not people, and should not be treated as or afforded the same rights as people under the law.

Tell Mitt Romney he's way off track. Corporations aren't people, and he should retract his comment.

To:
Mitt Romney
Your assertion that "corporations are people" is not only wrong, but represents the kind of thinking and Tea Party economics that threaten to keep our economy stagnating, keep the wealth gap in this country widening and keep an already heavily burdened middle class struggling!

You're wrong, plain and simple, and you should retract your comment.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Because people are people. Corporations take taxpayer money and then betray that trust by outsourcing jobs to China. Even if jobs cannot be saved the displacement of emplloyees needs to be done with open honesty, not by deceit.
