FDR is well known for the 'New Deal' and rightfully so. While far from being an ideal plan, it was immensely popular in its time. It established individual rights to a job, a home, selling agricultural products at a fair price so one could actually keep the farm, medical care and many other rights that individuals had not really had before the New Deal was passed. There is a big difference between the liberal progressives of today and the 1920's and 1930's. This is what makes Obama's 'New New Deal' so dangerous to our freedom and unique character that has set the United States above, beyond all other countries and governments that have existed in the past or present.
