Quote O' The Day

“Today’s announcement that Pfizer is closing its research facility in
New London demonstrates the folly of government plans that involve massive
corporate welfare and that abuse eminent domain for private development. The
majority opinion in Kelo v. New London described the Fort Trumbull project as a
‘carefully considered’ plan, but it has been an unmitigated disaster from
start—and now—to finish....Project supporters blame the economic downturn for
this turn of events. That is all the more reason why taxpayer dollars should not
be put at risk in speculative and risky development schemes.” ~Scott Bullock,
Institute for Justice Lawyer who argued the Kelo case before the Supreme Court.
