Pro

Roosevelt started the Civilian Conservation Corps which gave much of the nation's unemployed population job opportunities also, he was smart and heavily taxed the sale of beers and wine...Something very smart of him to do..
Lizbeth

Con

social security taxes on payrolls made it more expensive for emloyers to hire people, which discouraged hiring and the National Labor Relations Act (1935) gave unions monopoly bargaining power in workplaces and led to violent strikes and compulsory unionization of mass production of industries

Pro

For one single president, roosevelt did a lot. With the help of the three R's, which were relief, reform, and recovery, he managed to get the nation out of depression.
Lizbeth

Con

Roosevelt really didn't know what he was doing but it mattered little to the public as long as they thought they were getting out of the depression and many agree that it got the country moving toward the buildup of World War II. There was taxes on everything which made it hard for poor people to maintain themselves.

Reasons for voting decision: I agreed with Pro before the debate. After the debate, convincing me of nothing, I still agreed with Pro. I think that Con could've had this if she argued the point more furiously than a mere sentence or two each time and provided some evidence. Same way around for Pro. The only reason I voted for Pro is because I agreed with her before and after, because my opinion merely was not changed by Cons debating ability.
