Did The Cigna insurance delay kill 17-year-old Nataline Sarkisyan? Should coporations get the Death penalty?
Because of a mistaken interpretation of a Supreme Court reporter's notes in an 1886 railroad tax case, corporations are now legally considered "persons," equal to humans and entitled to many of the same protections guaranteed only to humans by the Bill of Rights - a clear contradiction of the intent of the Founders of the United States
If corporations are considered “persons” then shouldn’t they be given the “death penalty” for murder?
Isn’t it fascism when we give corporations higher status then humans?
