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.

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.
