    Hoover was more of a republican progressive just like Teddy Roosevelt.
    We had progressives in congress and they tried to pass the Agricultural Marketing Act through Coolidge , although during Coolidge it was called the McNary-Haugen bill and Coolidge had repeatedly vetoed it. Hoover signed it into law.
    the Federal Reserve was involved then too and tried to prevent price decline but it didn't work.
    It was also Labor unions that wanted wages to stay the same instead of lowering the wages in order to keep many more employed. It didn't work.
    It was government interfering again, just like now and not letting the private businesses adjust.
    Progressives in congress is what kept the depression prolonged. Just like now.

    Your the one who was taught the revisionist history.
    Teddy Roosevelt was a progressive and a Republican and started the bull moose party.
    The progressives started in the Republican party. That is actually history and is not revisionism. TM go to a library sometime instead of the INTERNET.

    He passed all kinds of regulations and bills that controlled the prices of farming and the markets.
    He also did the same thing as Obama did with increasing expenditures on public work projects, like a new building for the Supreme Court,a Senate office building and house building. He also had more buildings built in the states.
    You have heard of the Hoover Dam?
    It didn't work then just as it didn't work for Obama.
