‘Franklin D. Roosevelt’

** FILE ** In this May 7, 1933, file photo, President Franklin D. Roosevelt is shown at his desk at the White House, when he outlined his ideas to the nation on a partnership between the government and agriculture, industry, and transportation. Brother, can you spare a billion? More like $700 billion, to be precise. With Washington trying to finagle a $700 billion rescue for the nation’s financial system, other projects that could benefit from more federal dollars are starting to look like chump change. You could match Roosevelt on his New Deal and raise him billions more. (AP Photo)
