roughly until about the mid-70's, they have no way of knowing how good the post-War years were for America.
Oh I was in my prime during that era sonny.
There were no food stamps and everyone worked for a living instead of vote for a living.
And if you want to credit FDR for that you must be reading some fairytale.
The true fact of the matter about FDR's budget was that he ran the deficit up just like Obama did spending money like a drunken sailor.
Roosevelt was a stubborn fiscal conservative yet was always compared to former president Herbert Hoover's deficit, which he exceeded twice (1934 & 1936) "after the New Deal."
In 1936, Roosevelt had the largest absolute deficit of $4.4 billion, or 5.3% of Gross National Product (with help from an overlooked Roosevelt veto from Congress for Bonus Bill $2 billion for World War II vets.)
The Roosevelt Recession followed as he produced an austerity budget which drastically reduced government spending and the economy crumbled, unemployment ballooned to 19% from 14% and generated deficits reached nearly 30% of G.N.P.
And you actually want to give credit to your glory boy F.D.R. for the post war boom !
Get a grip Professor as I beg to take one of your college classes that you claim you teach to contradict your liberal propaganda that you brainwash our countries youth with.
The only thing I personally give FDR credit for was helping set up the Social Security Program, nothing more.
Nixon was twice the president that FDR ever thought of being when it came to the National deficit, the economy and most everything else.
Now please, no more of your propaganda about FDR almost a hundred years ago as to many of us here know better.
PLEASE, I beg you.
Let's talk about why Crooked Hillary is not under investigation for her felonies. :-)
