Jack and Suzy Welch argue for an affirmative answer in an interesting WSJ op-ed:
... when people say that corporations aren't people, what they really want to say is, "Business is evil."
They want to say what they feel, which is that capitalism doesn't work, that it's unfair, and that America needs another system—one that, to quote the president himself, "spreads the wealth around."
... this movement afoot that hates on business is craziness. It will destroy America as we know it because very few jobs get created in an environment that's outright hostile to business. And without jobs, the whole thing falls down. It becomes a welfare state. We become a welfare state.
Exactly. Go read the whole thing.
