Politico: Mitt Romney Doubling Down in Miami Today (9/21/2011), “I told them (Iowans), corporations are people"Submitted by AnAppealToHeavenWash on Wed, 09/21/2011 - 14:31
Mitt Romney is doubling down on his “corporations are people” line.
Speaking to a town hall-style gathering at a Miami airport hotel, the former Massachusetts governor repeated the line he first said last month at the Iowa State Fair.
“I’ll communicate to the private sector, by the way, that we like you,” Romney said in response to a question about how to encourage banks to lend more money. “We like enterprise. I was in Iowa the other day, and people suggested that we just raise taxes on corporations.”
He went on: “I told them, corporations are people. … Raising taxes on corporations is raising taxes on people.”
