    would point out that Herbert Hoover was a Republican president with lots of business experience and was also a milllionaire. It was his genuinely belief that the American worker should NOT receive government assistance as it would only make them lazy. Hoover is very much responsible for one of the worst, most destructive periods in American history because he believed that the private sector would come through to save the economy.

    Didn't happen. And THIS is what some people want to return to????
