The More Things Change....
...the more they stay the same.
The Liberty League was an organization that tried to rally public opinion against Roosevelt's New Deal. Conservative Democrats who disapproved of Roosevelt's New Deal measures founded the group. In 1934, New York Governor Alfrred Smith joined forces with wealthy business executives, who provided most of the league's funds. The league published pamphlets and sponsored radio programs, arguing that the New Deal was destroying personal liberty and leading us towards communism.
Sound familiar? How do criticisms of FDR's New Deal plan compare to criticisms of 'ObamaCare?'
