Elizabeth Warren blasts Romney comment that “corporations are people.”

Politico has this:

It was almost as if she was behind a lectern at Harvard again, teaching a lesson.
Massachusetts Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren took direct aim at Mitt Romney at an Obama fundraiser on Monday, dredging up his remark that “corporations are people.”
“No, Mitt, corporations are not people,” she exclaimed. “People have hearts, they have kids, they get jobs, they get sick,… they live and they die. Learn the difference. . . .
If this is what is taught at Harvard, we are in bad shape.  Here is the point that Romney was making.  Corporations are made up of people who work together.  Corporations don't exist independently of people.

Warren says - Corporations are not people. I totally agree with Warren because Corporations will never become people. "People" means society while "Corporation" means business organization.

I think Mitt Romney was making the point that corporations are people in the legal fiction sense John. That's how you can sue a corporation. It's a legal person. And why a corporation can defend itself. It's a legal person.
