While at the Iowa State Fair today, Mitt Romney told a crowd that raising taxes on individuals was an option, but he opposed it. When some hecklers in the audience started shouting “Corporations! Corporations!” suggesting that corporations should be paying new taxes too, Romney replied, “Corporations are people, my friend.” It’s unclear whether the friend he was referring to was a corporation or a human, or whether Romney thinks partnerships are cyborgs, but he did say later that he’s pretty sure sole proprietorships are humanoid.
