A new movie called "Little Pink House" tells the story of Kelo and eminent domain.

“Susette Kelo bought a run-down home. She fixed it up and painted it pink,” John Stossel recounts. “Then the government came and took it.”

“Eminent Domain” has long allowed politicians to grab your property to build roads, railroad tracks, a border wall–anything they claim is for “public use.” But they wanted Kelo’s house so they could give the property to a private developer. Is that right?

A new movie called “Little Pink House” tells the story of how Susette fought for her home, all the way to the Supreme Court.

Eventually she lost her case, and her home.

Stossel says this new movie, “The Little Pink House,” which comes out at the end of the month, is a good reminder of just how powerful, and wrong, politicians often are.
