    It could be anything.

    FDR created the middle class in just over 100 days. A sturdy bunch, for it's taken the current administration 8 years to almost wring the life out of them.

    FDR is responsible for many of the problems that this country is currently facing, especially social security. The New Deal actually prolonged the Great Depression by several years, minorities were discriminated against when trying to get New Deal jobs, and it was socialist in nature.

    "Two UCLA economists say they have figured out why the Great Depression dragged on for almost 15 years, and they blame a suspect previously thought to be beyond reproach: President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

    After scrutinizing Roosevelt's record for four years, Harold L. Cole and Lee E. Ohanian conclude in a new study that New Deal policies signed into law 71 years ago thwarted economic recovery for seven long years."

    The government kills social security and in that way never has to repay the fund for the money the government has borrowed.

    The New Deal, and all the improvements made by Roosevelt, became necessary only because of the failure of conservative policies in the 1920s. Whenvever the GOP gets into control they over-reach. It's happening again right before our eyes. The next presidential administration will do -more- of this stuff, not -less-.

    There was nothing "necessary" about FDR's programs.

    The Depression was caused by the Fed, pure and simple - not by "unfettered free markets" but the one area of the market that was an remains centrally controlled. And it was then prolonged by further intrusion into the market.

    hopefully social security. If they are going to keep it at least they could privatize it.
