The FDR's New Deal affected a lot of people in a negative way, especially poor people. In order for the New Deal programs to be financed federal taxes were tripled from $1.6 billion in 1993 to $5.3 billion in 1940. This made all kinds of taxes go up, such as excise taxes. Making it hard for poor people to to pay so much money.

Even though the FDR's New Deal caused taxes to rise, the goals of the New Deal were known as the three R's, or relief, reform, and recovery, relating directly to the Depression and rough times the American people were going through. The success of the three R's was immense.

Because of the taxes the New Deal made, people had to start to pay more money on items that were being bought. Income taxes also started to rise and this meant that people had less money to spend and the employers had very little money for growth and jobs. These "New Deal" taxes had many negative affects on jobs as well because it caused up to 17% less employment.

Con

The FDR didn't mean to hurt people financially but they did anyway. Even though the New Deal had good intentions and tried to make things work. We as people should think of the consequences of a deal before they put it in action, because not always good things come from these types of deals.
