McCain: Corporations Aren't People

John McCain disagrees with Romney, who he's supporting on the campaign trail.
"That is a great deal of money, and we need a level playing field and we need to go back to the realization... that we have to have a limit on the flow of money and corporations are not people," McCain said.

McCain went on to blast the 2010 Citizens United ruling by the U.S. Supreme Court, which freed individuals and corporations to give to outside groups by striking down parts of the 2002 McCain-Feingold campaign finance reform law that carried his name.
McCain is concerned that Romney's new sugar dada, Sheldon Adelson, who's net worth is $25 BILLION, is using foreign money to support Romney:
Former Republican presidential candidate John McCain said Friday that Mitt Romney's campaign was being indirectly underwritten by "foreign money" after casino mogul Sheldon Adelson pledged $10 million to a Super PAC supporting his campaign.

"Much of Mr. Adelson's casino profits that go to him come from his casino in Macau, which says that obviously, maybe in a roundabout way foreign money is coming into an American political campaign," McCain told PBS's "News Hour." More at the Hill
