The 1920s and 30s had three democratic presidents, and they were Warren Harding, Calvin Coolidge, and Herbert Hoover. They all had one thing in common, and that was that they all supported the Laissez-Faire policy. That policy was made so that the government would have little interference in the business activity. When the crash came Herbert Hoover was president. Hoover opposed to the direct relief of individuals, but he supported the relief to private organizations. What Hoover gave to the private individuals was not enough to make a huge difference. Due to his choices he made many people suffer more than they had to. Which led to the Bonus Army, and that was made up of veterans who wanted the money they were promised when they originally joined the army. Unfortunately, Hoover did not give the veterans what they deserved. That action drove Hoover to hide in the White House, and he sent his troops to hurt the veterans so that they would stop their protest.
