Critics of Franklin D. Roosevelt and the New Deal Father Coughlin: In 1934, Coughlin organized his supporters and formed the National Union for Social Justice whose main objectives were to engage in rallies for and against political candidates. Through this organization, Coughlin attacked New Deal reforms (which he deemed not radical enough) and pushed tirelessly for absolute federal control of the country’s economic system. In 1932 just before his election, Roosevelt met with and charmed the popular Coughlin. Walking away from the meeting voicing his full support of the democratic candidate for President, Coughlin showered Roosevelt with adulation on his radio programs and was convinced that the President would take his advice on the economic future of the nation. Coughlin believed the New Deal programs started off well, but by 1934 he criticized them for not completely ridding the nation of its economic woes.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
