The Green Party, Press Release:
Green Party Calls Supreme Court Decision on Eminent Domain a Legalization of Theft

From the Green Party press release on eminent domain abuse and the recent US Supreme Court ruling:

"Working class and low income homeowners will be at special risk, since they provide less tax revenue, and the Court now gives permission for city councils and statehouses to evict and replace them with commercial and residential development for the sake of a wealthier tax base," said Steve Kramer, co-chair of the Green Party of the United States. "The Court has legalized theft -- theft from the poor for the rich."
