The New Deal:
The legislative and administrative program of President F. D. Roosevelt designed to promote economic recovery and social reform during the 1930s (Merriam Webster Dictionary)
After Cermak's assassination, FDR carried on in support of the very cause that brought Cermak to Florida-- to apply for federal funding. FDR bolstered and subsidized local governments with the aid of the federal mandates that came with the New Deal, helping Chicago and America to bounce back from the economic catastrophe.
"I pledge you, I pledge myself, to a new deal for the American people."
--Franklin D. Roosevelt
"The country needs and, unless I mistake its temper, the country demands bold, persistent experimentation. It is common sense to take a method and try it: If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something."
