Summary of FCA work, for The Catholic Tribune
With a national election approaching, politicians routinely condemned “all the major edifices” of the Roosevelt Administration, but the Farm Credit Administration escaped much of this criticism. The Catholic Tribune suggests that even the President’s most vocal critics could not find fault with the achievements and goals of the FCA. The FCA successfully rescued American farmers from imminent bankruptcy through the refinancing of farm mortgages. The Government under Roosevelt invested millions of dollars into the FCA in order to accomplish this goal, and it alone seemed immune to election-time attacks.
