Securities and Exchange Comm.
Dear Securities and Exchange Comm.,
ENOUGH!! In Citizens United, our Supreme Court Justices produced a "whiskey, tango, foxtrot" moment for lawyers and non-lawyers alike.
Mitt Romney once blindly asserted that "... corporations are people, my Friend." That is WRONG. The shareholders are people. If the corporation were a person, each human shareholder could have at least twice the rights of any other human citizen - once on their own and once more if the corporation advance the same position.
Where can the corporation ITSELF be imprisoned for its crimes; run for political office; petition the government; qualify for Social Security or Medicare; make a will; or obtain a license to practice law? Respectfully, Paul H Reinhardt
