Maxine Waters doesn't like the Kelo decision

Nor should she. Nor should anyone else except developer-thugs.

There is a growing reaction around the country which I think is a healthy response to a lousy decision by the Supreme Court: the Court held that governments may use eminent domain to seize property for private developers, if doing so will increase tax revenues. Increasing tax revenues serves as a "public purpose" so far as the current court is concerned. King George would have approved.

Rich Lowry reports on Waters' response.
