Earlier this month Senator Jon Tester introduced a constitutional amendment clarifying that corporations are not “people.” Senator McConnell called the proposed amendment absurd.
“Well you have to give them some points for not hiding it… They are uncomfortable with corporate free speech obviously. They were not uncomfortable with corporate free speech when corporations that owned newspapers or television stations were engaging in it. They only become uncomfortable with it when the Supreme Court said, why should there be a carve out for corporations that own the media outlet and for no one else? It’s an absurd proposal and it won’t go anywhere.”
