    Lets hope they get this right and bipartisan politics prevails. Reverse what a runnaway judicial system that did not interpret, but legislated a law.


    Seven years after the U.S. Supreme Court affirmed the right of cities to use eminent domain to secure land for proposed private commercial development, and after more than 40 States that have reassessed and limited their own state eminent domain laws in response, a bipartisan group of federal lawmakers is still seeking to legislatively overturn the decision in Kelo v. City of New London.

    It looks like it had pretty wide support from both parties. Hopefully it does pass. I could not locate the actual vote from the house though. Do you know what it was?

    I wouldn't count on EITHER PARTY coming down against the notion that the point of government is to help big capital.

    The purpose of government now seems to be almost nothing EXCEPT to help BIG CAPITAL keep getting BIGGER.

    It seems, in this instance, they have in the house. One reason that I wanted to know the vote. The reps control the house so I was wondering how much support the dems gave it. The co-sponsors included democrats so that was a good sign. Of course, it still needs to get through Reid, that is another story.

    The decision was 5 to 4.

    What I don't understand is why any Republicans would be against this. Take a poor man's land so money can be made to benefit the few rich and create some low paying jobs. Isn't that what Republicans are all about?

    Nope. As a worthless hack I don't expect you to actually understand but the bill PREVENTS what you are talking about and was passed BY THE REPUBLICAN CONTROLLED HOUSE. Still waiting on the senate.

    BTW, the OP was on a bill, not a SCOTUS case though it was mentioned. Care to actually address the point or do you want to continue to be a hack.

    The House passed it on a voice vote. The Senate though is where the hang up is and they are trying to attach a lot of riders on it.

    This is where they always seem to go south. They recieve a good bipartisan bill, and the Senate puts some crap partisan pork in it that ends up killing the bill.
    Ain't America wonderful?

    It is about time for the People to put a stop to this sort of behavior from our Senate. They would do well to remember that they serve us, not special interest groups.
