23. Before mine, also. But his New Deal gave protections to us citizens.

The CONS have hated the New Deal ever since it came about. And they've been hellbent on dismantling it throughout its existence. Why? Because THEY DON'T WANT TO HELP YOU!!! That's in my sig line, below, and this is why. THEY DON'T WANT TO HELP YOU. Or ANYBODY else among the vulnerable in America who needs help or a fair shake. And worse, they don't think they should have to! Mind you, many of these individuals also loudly claim to be followers of Christ. But their behavior betrays them - that they have totally and WILLFULLY ignored the quotes from Matthew 25: 35-45 about how you treat those the Gospel of Matthew quotes Christ as calling "the least of My brethren" - ie: the most vulnerable among us.

A number of social assistance programs that exist in the United States today trace their legacy to the New Deal era, including old age pensions, unemployment insurance, farm subsidies, subsidized public housing, support for the disabled, or support for children in the poorest families. They are designed to subsidize the needs of the general population with various eligibility requirements. The Social Security system remains the largest and most prominent social aid program originally established by New Deal legislation. Similarly, measures protecting labor that are today a taken-for-granted aspect of American life are a result of the New Deal. While such developments as a ban on child labor, maximum working hours, and minimum wages had been discussed or even introduced to a limited extent on a state level during the Progressive Era, it was the New Deal legislation that included them in federal legislation.
