We need a constitutional amendment to put corporations in their place [Letter]

Thomas Schaller's ironic and disturbing commentary in The Sun, "Not taxing U.S. corporations gives a pass to foreigners" (July 8) yielded two takeaways: (1) In the wake of the Supreme Court decisions in "Citizens United" and "Hobby Lobby," we need a Constitutional amendment that invalidates the preposterous concept of corporate personhood; and (2) Any corporation that sells its goods or services to Americans must pay corporate taxes in the U.S., whether they are chartered in Maryland, an overseas tax shelter, or another solar system.
