Calvin Coolidge was not a good president because he made the Great Deppresion even worse.

Thank you for yet another debate. I dearly hope that this one is better than the previous.

First off, I would like to say that Calvin Coolidge was a great president. He lowered both taxes and federal spending. These are two things that fight Depression the most. Also, your argument is that he made the Great Depression "even worse". The Great Depression didn't even start until after he long retired, so he couldn't have made it worse if it was there after him. Herbert Hoover worsened the Great Depression by relying on volunteers to help, who were far and few between, and tried to act in every problem. Coolidge's plan was to do nothing when nothing had to be done, and it worked.

I await your rebuttal.

Either I am thinking of Herbert Hoover or Coolidge but:
When one of these guys where president, the stock market crashed, and Coolidge tried a organization to increase the minimum wage but mostly it made rich people even more rich such as buisness men.

Calvin Coolidge was not president when the stock market crashed in 1929. Herbert Hoover was. Your argument is that Coolidge was a bad president, for the reason that he worsened the stock market. He didn't. He was gone. Whether or not Hoover was good is irrelevant to this debate.

Coolidge helped the boom of the 20s.
Hoover increased taxes and regulations, causing the stagnation that made the economy worse.
FDR built on Hoover's policies and made them bigger.
Many economists agree that between FDR and Hoover, the Depression was extended 7 years longer than necessary.

Wait, so you put the wrong president in the title of this debate?

That's going to cost you.
