Long-shot Presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) lashed out at the Labor Department’s new regulations preventing children from performing some duties on farms.

Long-shot Presidential candidate Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) lashed out at the Labor Department’s new regulations preventing children from performing some duties on farms.

“My parents were dairy farmers who required me and my brothers to help out on the farm,” Paul said in a statement. “Thanks to the Obama Administration, future generations of children will be deprived of these experiences.”

Paul added that since the regulations specifically prevent children from performing chores on farms, the Labor Department could soon stop children from making their beds or setting the table.

The stance is no surprise from the libertarian leaning candidate. Known as “Dr. No” in the House, the retiring Congressman has been an outspoken opponent a wide array of government regulations.
