    D. John Quincy Adams.

    It was a proposal that created much resentment towards his administration because at the time the economy was having problems and people didn't see any importance in building roads or canals because horses were the main means of travel then and most of the country lived in towns near rivers. Also Congress at the time was mainly supportive of Andrew Jackson and were still angry over the results of the election of 1824, so they limited passage of his proposals as much as possible.
