If you were the president in 1935 (at the height of the Dust Bowl), what government programs would you put in place to help struggling families in the Dust Bowl affected areas? How would you balance this help with the help you are already giving to families struggling because of the Great Depression? Where would the money come from to be able to help? What programs would you cut?
