Title: The Progressive Presidents


1
The Progressive Presidents
Roosevelt, Taft, and Wilson

Roosevelts View of the Presidency
  • Roosevelts rise to governor of New York upset
    the Republican political machine.
  • To get rid of the progressive Roosevelt, party
    bosses got him elected as vice president, a
    position with little power at that time.

From Governor to Vice President
  • President William McKinley was shot and killed in
    1901, leaving the office to Roosevelt.
  • At 42 years old he was the youngest president and
    an avid reformer.

Unlikely President
  • Roosevelt saw the presidency as a a platform to
    publicize important issues and seek support for
    his policies on reform.

The Coal Strike of 1902
  • After a 3 month investigation, the arbitrators
    decided to give the workers a shorter workday and
    higher pay but did not require the mining
    companies to recognize the union.
  • Satisfied, Roosevelt pronounced the compromise a
    square deal.

The Square Deal
  • The Square Deal became Roosevelts 1904 campaign
    slogan and the framework for his entire
    presidency.
  • He promised to see that each is given a square
    deal, because he is entitled to no more and
    should receive no less.
  • Roosevelts square deal called for
  • 1. Limiting the power of trusts
  • 2. Promoting public health and safety
  • 3. Improving working conditions.

5
Regulating Big Business
  • Roosevelt believed big business was essential to
    the nations growth but also believed companies
    should behave responsibly.
  • In 190, three tycoons joined their railroad
    companies together to eliminate competition and
    became the Northern Securities Company

Progressivism under Taft
  • Tafts administration is also credited with the
    passage of the Sixteenth Amendment, which granted
    Congress the power to levy taxes based on
    individual income.
