Corporations Deserve Say in Elections


Editor,

I take exception to Matt Dunne’s perception of corporations. According to an early 19th century Supreme Court ruling, corporations have been given basic “person hood”. Corporations, while separate and distinct from their owners, may sue and be sued, hold title to real and personal property, are subject to laws and regulations put forth by the nation, states, etc. to which they belong. They are also subject to taxation at those same levels. What Mr. Dunne is advocating is taxation without representation and violates their right to free speech by being able to support candidates with whom they agree on the issues.

I am a retired accountant for a manufacturer here in Vermont and have seen first hand the burden that taxes and regulations place on a company. To not let corporations have a say is grossly unfair.
