Transcript of Domestic Policies of Truman, Eisenhower, and Kennedy

Domestic Policies of Truman, Eisenhower, and Kennedy Implemented improved housing (Housing Act of 1949), a higher minimum wage and expansion of social security(Social Security Act of 1950)
Also pushed for full employment, better farm price supports and new TVA's although most of these measures were struck down or opposed by Republicans and southern Democrats.
Dynamic Conservatism The Fair Deal He was conservative toward issues involving government, economy and money but liberal towards issues with people.
Main priority was to balance the budget, he favored small government, private corporations and industries
However, he accepted the basic framework of the New Deal because "should any political party attempt to abolish Social Security, unemployment insurance, and eliminate labor and farm programs, you would not hear of that party again in our political history."
Critics accused this policy of being too bland, he didn't use his popularity for good causes like civil rights and other social justice issues.
Tried to raise the standard of education and built roads to improve infrastructure.
Attempted to reverse Indian New Deal policies by once again forcing Native Americans to assimilate New Frontier Wanted more medical assistance for the aged and increased emphasis on education
Supported a general tax-cut bill instead of increasing government spending to stimulate the economy.
implement pro-business policies such as the noninflationary wage agreement

Also gave billions of dollars for the purpose of landing a man on the moon.
