The Fair Deal Committee
Founded in Chicago, is a group of concerned citizens determined to preserve and protect core principles of our American republic: lawfulness, caring for others, and equal opportunity.
History of the Fair Deal
From 1945 to 1953, President Harry S. Truman ambitiously promoted policies and legislation founded on the idea that “every segment of our population, and every individual, has a right to expect a fair deal from his government.”
His initiatives included fair taxation, universal health care, an increase in the minimum wage, improvement in federal aid to veterans, increased aid to education, and legislation to ensure full employment.
Focused on abundance rather than scarcity, the original Fair Dealers wanted to stimulate economic growth and spread prosperity’s benefits to everyone. We have a parallel situation today.
In this time of abundance and prosperity, our Fair Deal Committee is working to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to participate and benefit.
