Ron Paul Rebukes Mitt Romney: Corporations Are Not People

Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) affirmed this weekend his belief that only individuals are people, rebuking Mitt Romney’s recent statement: “Corporations are people, my friend.”

Confronted by Think Progress reporter Scott Keyes, Ron Paul replied: “Obviously they’re not. People are individuals, they’re not groups and they’re not companies. Individuals have rights, they’re not collective. You can’t duck that. So individuals should be responsible for corporations, but they shouldn’t be a new creature, so to speak. Rights and obligations should be always back to the individual.”
