Elizabeth Warren lectures ‘Mitt’ that corporations aren’t people because people live and die

Introducing the president tonight, Elizabeth Warren decided to lecture Mitt Romney on why corporations aren’t people:

And Mitt Romney tells us in his own words that he believes corporations are people. No Mitt, corporations are not people. People have hearts, they have kids, they get jobs, they get sick, they love and they cry and they dance, 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.

Watch below:

The clip she’s referring to is from last year where Romney was talking about fixing entitlements and how some want to raise taxes on people to do that (he doesn’t). Someone shouted “what about [taxing] corporations” at which point Romney explained that corporations are people too because everything that a corporation earns eventually goes to people:

Why is this so hard for the left to understand? Corporations are businesses that are run by people and if they are successful real people benefit and if they fail real people lose jobs. The people that run corporations have hearts, they have kids, they get jobs (corporate ones!), they get sick, they love, they cry, they dance and they most certainly live and they die. They also poop at least once a day as well.

It’s ridiculous that the left thinks you can just raise taxes on corporations and it doesn’t affect real people. You raise taxes on corporations and they just pass the cost burden onto customers so that we pay higher prices and they likely lose customers. Keep it up and everyone loses.

This is why people like Elizabeth Warren sound so stupid when they try and play this talking point that corporations aren’t people. She doesn’t know what in the world she’s talking about.

          I left C4P too for a sabbatical. Problem is two bad apple mods are pushing a particular theme and then outright will lie about it when confronted. I mean flat out lie.

          • virginiagentleman1

            An early good morning to you, Explorer!

            Yes, my friend, I understand what you are saying. I too, have read the lies and seen the heavy handed tactics. In an odd way, both mods remind me of Obama wanta-be’s! RULE baby, not listen!
            That site has lost it’s soul and it’s focus! So very many of our mutual friends have sought me out to tell me they have left that I am no longer shocked, just terribly saddened. I am at a loss to explain it.
            Welcome to Scoop, my friend. I believe that you will find the mods here are fair and the posters warm hearted and welcoming.
            When you compare the two sites, Scoop is rather wide ranging in the news it covers, and C4P has become an organ of a small handfull of people who believe that they and they only are the ‘keepers and interpeters’ of all things Sarah what she means on any given day. It is strange indeed that they ‘feel’ only they know what Sarah Palin thinks!
            I’d be willing to bet good money that Palin isn’t happy with the site these days.
            When her brother Chuck Heath, jr. wrote, pleading for us to stay, the handwriting was on the wall. C4P has lost it’s way, my friend. VG

    • marketcomp

      Why would anyone take advice from someone who does not know whether she is an Indian or not?

  • and yet you abort babies and leave new born babies to die on a cold steel table at the abortion clinic? What kind of “people” are you?

    • They are the kind of evil people who leave new born babies to die in a garbage can yet claim the death penalty is cruel and unusual. Don’t even try to figure them out- it will hurt your brain.

          really she should just go fork herself!

  • Corporations don’t die? Really? Anyone heard of Eastern Airlines? Plenty of companies die, and when they do jobs are destroyed and families have to start over. Just ask the city of Norfolk how corporations die.


    Here’s the good news. The death of a company can be the fertilizer for a new and vibrant company… unless the do-gooders and union bosses try to prop up our dying company using taxpayer money and then we get… THE VOLT! (GM sucks!)

  • Judgements

    so do corporations.

    And you’re not an American Indian.

  • Alborn

    Name me one corporation without people Lisagauwan. Many people incorporate to protect their private property in case their business fails so they do not lose the house they live in to debtors. This woman is an idiot. This is like saying the government is not people because it never dies. It is impossible to kill any of the programs that government starts. But there is no government without people. Oh what a wonderful thought, no government.

    People have hearts, they have kids, they get jobs, they get sick, they love and they cry and they dance, they live and they die‘ – ‘Pocahontas’ Warren

    Usually they do all that because the Corporations afforded them the living to do so.

    They also have a heritage, a culture, a family background. What did you come up with this week? Have you become Jewish, or perhaps you’re a native Swahili now? Maybe you’re a melting pot, or perhaps you’re just smoking it in the peace pipe again.

  • Sandra123456

    Who is Warren running against Mitt Romney or Scott Brown?

    Corporations are groups of people working to earn money. Where else does the earnings go…to robots?

    We really need economics and logic taught in our high schools.

  • KenInMontana

    Well Lizzy, NAACP (corporation) The Center for American Progress, et cetra, are not “people” either. We will turn your own weapons upon thee with extreme prejudice, and you can take that to the bank.

  • What does sitting Bull know about corporations anyway? She claims they are “running” the country for the people. Oh hey sitting Bull, when a nation is divided into hyphen Americans, it’s kind of hard to “run” for everyone. When you divide the people according to class, race, gender… there’s bound to be some groups out there who don’t recieve the same respect as those specially created hyphen groups.
    You say corporations are non living. Funny, I never saw a corporation start itself from the ground up… only individuals with a dream, an idea, some spirit and grit have started corporations.

  • stage9

    Why is this so hard for the left to understand?

    The sooner you learn that the left is stupid and unredeemable (at least in terms of common sense) the better off you’ll be. You just can’t argue with the mentally insane. It’s that simple. And that’s what we have; the patients are running the asylum!

    Solyndra died! (But I think it was pre-meditated murder buy the crony who had access to the money.)

    Liberal Logic:

    A group of people that form a union and then use their combined money to support candidates that they believe in = Wonderful example of Democracy in action!

    A group of people that form a corporation and then use their combined money to support candidates that they believe in = An unconstitutional abomination that will stomp upon everyone’s rights and destroy everything in its path!!

    LOL. Maybe we should introduce Ms Warren to Solyndra!

    How could anyone in Massachusetts who gets up and goes to work at a white collar job vote for this complete idiot? She’s gonna rob you blind.

    I wonder if Obama slipped her a couple bullet points to talk about…

    Or maybe she was channeling her inner Cherokee?

    Yep, she’s a Democrat.

  • librtifirst

    Corporations are not people legally. They should not be afforded the same rights as individuals. This becomes more important to understand every day, now that we have a corporate crony government.

    I am not supporting this woman, but I get tired of the complacency of people who seem to ignore our rule of law and let government get away with corporate crony criminality and tyranny on the people. The income tax was based on corporations being taxed in the beginning. This was considered to be constitutional. They then incorporated the individual, and now we have the IRS. It is unconstitutional and needs to be abolished.

  • EdHerold

    …and you lie Elizabeth!

    Nope. From iowahawk…

    ‘Government’ is just a word for things we do together.
    ‘Corporations’ is just a word for things we do together voluntarily.

  • sDee

    What more should we expect from a bunch of self serving marxist idealists who have never had to produce anything or show a profit their entire lives.

    They survive because of us, the producers. If it were not for our corporations and the crucial protection of capital, these parasites would stand helpless in the streets unable to provide for themselves.

    • WestGAFlash

      “Those who cannot do – teach.”

      Prophetic, don’t you think?

  • I work for a corporation and I can dance, get sick, cry, and laugh in this liar’s face.

    I’m pretty sure I can die, too. But, I’ll wait to test my theory until later in life.

    What is wrong with these people? Do they think IBM is just a building? They do know that Facebook has employees that are people and it isn’t just a computer plugged in and connected to the rest of the world, right?

  • odin147

    Bleeding heart libs, without the corps the people won’t have jobs to feed themselves and live, to pay bills when they get sick, to pay the tuition fees for their kids… etc one of the most important entities in fact the most important entity in any society is a business large or small because without a business you don’t have a Job and without a job you don’t have a stable family that is why we keep taxes low.

  • I will take it a step further scoop. When revenues decrease municipalities lose revenue to help pay for our teachers, cops, etc. Without the private sector NOBODY WINS! So why the hell would you bite the hand that feeds you? Ask the left the next time they think it is a good idea to raise taxes!

  • virginiagentleman1

    One marxist opening act before the main American marxist comes on. Got yer rotten eggs ready?

  • Warren, her party and the GA. Stones, have hearts made of the same marteria, stone.
    Without people there isn’t the heart of anything, and in any of lifes adventures there must be people, because the rest are only animals.
    Warren is truly a danger to all homo sapiens. The women is mentallly challegened.

    First, got a chuckle that at the end of the article the ad was for setting up an LLC in 5 minutes, ha!

    Second, Warren is an idiot.

    Third, as Mitt pointed out where does this money that “corporations” have go to? To some robot or something? Some evil capitalist robot?? No, as Mitt pointed out, to people. And as RS pointed out when you do things to corporations the people that work for it are affected and the people that buy the products are affected. Plus I’m sure the left doesnt’ want to acknowledge all the corporations that they frequent everyday unless all the do is go to local farms for their food and little mom and pop shops for their goods (ones that aren’t incorporated that is).

    The left is so dumb on this issue that it pains me to hear them rant about it.

      Apparently Hardcrud has many so you must be specific when you say that.


    Pitiful “people of the lis” type.

  • Warren is clearly a Marxist elitist.

    That said, corporations are not people. A corporation is a government-chartered legal entity. I am co-owner of an S-corporation.

    Good point, Liz. And you’re not a Cherokee just ’cause grandma said so.

  • She has been taking lessons in dynamic public speaking from Harry Reid.

  • Philo Beddoe

    Warren, Pelosi and the rest of the loons are the one’s that are and attempting to control everyone’s lives. Plug in the self serving illegal’s vote and we have a USA nut house.

  • Elizabeth Warren, or as I like to call her by her Indian name “Spouting Bull,” doesn’t know the difference between corporations and people because like most far-left liberals she’s never even been in a major corporation. I guess when General Motors was going bankrupt and thousands of people were about to lose their jobs, the fact that the corporation was going under had no real effect on regular people, right? If the corporation does well, the people who work for the corporation do well. If not, they’re out of a job, which doesn’t help anybody. A kid knows that. I mean, a kid who has a real job, unlike Warren.

  • Don

    Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Pelosi, Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Maxine Waters, Sheila Jackson Lee, the list goes on and on with liberals demonstrating on a daily basis that liberalism is a progressive mental disorder that only gets worse with time Add their male cohorts, Bill Maher, Lawrence O’Donnell, Bill Press, Al Gore, Howard Dean, Harry Reid, Ed Schultz,Van Jones and the list of those attacking the American way of life seems endless. With the bias of the mainstream media, the progressive hate and vitriole is to a point it may never be reigned in again. Time to consider the options and move forward. Do we survive as a nation or do we become the controlled “masses”?

  • I think Spreading Bull speaks with forked tongue! Has she been at the firewater again?

  • It’s the liberal way to dehumanize everything they dislike. An unborn baby is a “fetus” and an abortion is a “medical procedure” and Corporations are not run by humans, but by giant robots from another planet.

    People have hearts, they have kids, they get jobs,(FROM CORPORATIONS) they get sick( AND GET HEALTH CARE INSURANCE FROM CORPORATIONS), they love and they cry and they dance, they live and they die. THE ONLY THING THAT DOES NOT DIE IS GOVERNMENT OF WHICH YOU REPRESENT. IS THIS YOUR BEST ARGUMENT AGAINST ROMNEY?

    WHAT A FRICKING MORON. How does the liberal left get away with so many idiots spouting lunacy and still win elections? How?

  • notayot

    Corporations are trying to strip-mine America like a swarm of locusts to suck us dry of our wealth and resources. Yes, corporations are made up of people, but so are unions. Unions are not people. Money is not speech, otherwise I could pay my electric bills with a quick phone call and chatter. Corporations can buy each other, merge, dissolve, re-emerge, split up, be in several places at once on different continents and get away with enormous theft without going to prison. When they gamble and lose, taxpayers (real people) bail them out so they can go gamble some more.
    All the comments on this site sound like a bunch of school yard mean-kids taunting each other with name calling. No thoughtful discussion, no arguing the merits of just clinging to mis-begotten talking points with no substance.
    (Go ahead, call me something if it will make you feel smug and superior.)

  • Corporations are not people to Elizabeth Warren and Cherokees are not people to her, either, they are tools to use as needed and discard and ignore once they have served their purpose.
