Mitt Romney: 'Corporations are people'

The GOP presidential candidate caused a stir during his August trip to the Iowa State Fair, when asked about how he would raise taxes to help cover entitlement spending. A heckler yelled "Corporations!" to which he said, "Corporations are people, my friend." Democrats immediately pounced on Romney, saying that he is an out-of-touch elitist. "This is what Mitt Romney is going to run on?" wrote DNC spokesman Brad Woodhouse. Charlie Neibergall/Associated Press
