Corporations Aren't People (Petition)

Congressman Jim McGovern, a Democrat representing Massachusetts, recently introduced a "People's Rights Amendment" that will overturn the disastrous Citizens United ruling by the US Supreme Court.


Below is an introduction from Congressman McGovern's web site:
Corporations are not people.
They do not breathe. They do not have children. They do not die in war. They are artificial entities which we the people create and, as such, we govern them, not the other way around.

The Citizens United ruling marks the most extreme extension of a corporate rights doctrine which has eroded our First Amendment and our Constitution.
