Montana Senator (and farmer) Jon Tester: Corporations Are Not People

This week, Montana farmer and US Senator Jon Tester, took to the floor of the Senate to explain why he has introduced a Constitutional amendment to preserve rights of human beings, and end the fabrication of new “corporate rights”.

In November 2012, 75% of Montana’s voters approved a ballot initiative instructing Montana’s elected representatives to work for a 28th Amendment to overturn Citizens United and the new theories that money is speech, and corporations are people under the Constitution.
