Just caught a little bit of the Kagan Hearings Yesterday

Noticed that Sen. Chuck Schumer went on (and on, and on) about how he feared that Citizens United would return us to the Lochner era or something (yeah, I didn’t follow that, either).  Then, Ms. Kagan did her speach, and praised America as being, a land where “you can work as hard as you want” to acomplish your goals. 

Lochner v. New York struck down regulations prohibiting bakers from working more than 60 hours a week.
