"Americans of all political persuasions were demanding immediate action, and Roosevelt responded with a remarkable series of new programs in the 'first hundred days' of the administration, in which he met with Congress for 100 days. During those 100 days of lawmaking, Congress granted every request Roosevelt asked, and passed a few programs (such as the FDIC to insure bank accounts) that he opposed."
