Truman Says Opponents Would Wreck New Deal
President Truman Monday said voters should stop the Republicans before they wrecked the New Deal, as he swung through Ohio on another speechmaking tour.
The President said that Republicans from highest to lowest in rank are out to control Congress and the White House so they can wipe out New Deal measures.
Already they have begun the whittling away at destruction of many such laws.
So if you want to do away with the New Deal you might get some action if Republicans win.
But if you don’t want to go back to 9c oats and cream, 8c cotton and 20c corn and wheat, or 2 cents for hogs and cows…
The New Deal Gave Us
Old Age Pensions
Farm Price supports
Aid to women and children
The GI Bill of Rights
High price for labor
Aid to Schools
Raised minimum wages
Gave us Social Security
And prosperity untold.
For me and my house we vote the straight Democratic ticket.
