Mitt Romney Says ‘Corporations are People’, Gets Heckled at Iowa State Fair: VIDEO


Mitt Romney was heckled after defending corporate rights on the campaign trail at the Iowa State Fair today, TPM reports:

Responding to a question from an audience member as to why Social Security should be included in deficit talks when it doesn't add to the deficit, Romney drifted into a defense of corporate rights.

"Corporations are people, my friend," he said. "Of course they are."

After receiving jeers from the audience over the quote, he elaborated: "Everything corporations earn goes to people. Where do you think it goes? Whose pockets? People's pockets. Human beings, my friend."

Romney also raised his voice at another heckler (at 2:00 into the second clip):

"If you don’t like my answer, you can go vote for someone else."
