Why I like Eminent Domain

How about states using eminent domain to take over drug patents and letting other manufacturers make the drugs at discount prices. That's an idea being proposed in Washington, D.C., and which Canada already threatens to do routinely to force companies to produce drugs more cheaply. So before progressives decide that courts shouldn't let property be transferred from one owner to another using eminent domain, think about the broader implications of restricting democratic options for government.
