You have to be kidding me. We now know that FDR was almost completely responsible for the great depression. Only in liberal mythology did FDR "save" the nation. His regulatory morass, which replicated the disastrous communist "five year planning" was responsible for 1/3 of the loss of growth, his tax increases were responsible for another 1/3 and the interaction of his horrible policies with monetary policy led to the final 1/3 through the shrinking of the money supply.

Worse yet, Roosevelt's disastrous economic policies drug down the whole world and directly led to the rise of a no-name hack named Adolph Hitler who was going nowhere until Germany's economy went into the tank.

Now, we have to suffer the misery again as the current slime in the white house repeat the Roosevelt playbook. Who are the victims? Young African-Americans, recent college graduates and small business job creators. Unemployed, unemployed and bankrupt.
