Elizabeth Warren: 'No, Mitt, Corporations Are Not People'

Elizabeth Warren: 'No, Mitt, corporations are not people'
Views:

From last night's fundraiser in Boston with President Obama. The Elizabeth Warren-Scott Brown senate race is expected to be the most anticipated, and expensive in the country. Democrats hopes for holding on to the senate probably rest with a Warren win also, which explains the Obama visit.

“Mitt Romney tells us, in his own words, he believes 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.

“And Mitt, learn this: we don’t run this country for corporations, we run it for people,” Warren continued, drawing cheers from the crowd at Boston Symphony Hall.

“We know where president Obama stands, he stands for working people,” she said. “It’s just as clear where Mitt Romney stands.”

Obama hailed Warren’s fighting for the middle class and told the crowd “how lucky all of you are to have the chance to vote for her in the next election.”

“She is going to be an outstanding senator for Massachusetts,” he said.
