On the second night of the Republican National Convention in Tampa, speakers kept up a drumbeat of outrage about excessive government regulation. The most outrageous example came from South Dakota Sen. John Thune, who said the Obama administration "proposed banning farm kids from doing basic chores!"
We explored Thune's claim and found that the truth wasn't close to what he said. The Labor Department proposed a rule tightening safety rules for minors working on farms. What it specifically did not do: disallow kids from doing basic jobs on their parents' farms.
The ruling: Pants On Fire.
Wednesday's theme at the convention was "We can change it," with a full lineup of speakers imploring the need for a new direction in the White House.
