Rand Paul's Favorite Philosophers Think Poor People Are 'Parasites' | ThinkProgress - Last January, Rand Paul praised Justice Peckham’s most famous decision, Lochner v. New York, which gave employers sweeping rights to exploit their workers, as a model for the judiciary to follow.)
"Lochner fabricated a so-called right to contract in order to strike down a New York law preventing bakery owners from overworking bakers, but its rationale has implications for any law intended to shield workers from exploitation...Lochner established that any law that limits any contract between an employer and an employee is constitutionally suspect." Rand Paul: "I’m asking [Obama] today — to rethink the Lochner case. . . . I think it’s a wonderful decision."
