More to come.

IN was Thomas Marshall's home state.

Interesting stuff Tommy. Wondering what TR during WWII looks like and how the Republican dominance will continue. Maybe Al Smith to upset it with a Democratic roaring 20's?

Teddy Roosevelt is inaugurated for a 3rd term.  "Today Americans, we're going to go back to the policies that worked under my administration four years ago.  Under the Taft administration we've seen conservatism creep into the Republican Party.  Thank you and God Bless America."

One of his first priorities is to ask Cngress for a bill that would give Americans the 8 hour work day.  The House passed the Workday Hour Act of 1913 250-185.  The Senate then passed it 57-39.  President Roosevelt signs it into law on April 20, 1913.  It will go into law in June.

President Roosevelt calls it "a true day for the American worker."

Speaker Grant proposes a bill that would give voters a say when the justice system strikes down legislation.  He says "The courts may decide they don't like a certain piece of legislation but it will be up to the voters to keep it in place if the courts turn down legislation.  This is a true day for democracy as I bring this bill to the floor.". The House vote is 236-199.  It's having a hard time in the Senate but eventually passes 52-44.  President Roosevelt signs it on May 15, 1913.

More to come.  Including foreign policy stuff.

On June 24, 1913 Joseph Cook becomes the 6th Prime Minister of Austrailia.

In the fall of 1913 President Roosevelt goes across the country proposing a social insurance program for seniors,people who are unemployed and the disabled.  The House passes it 250-185 and the Senate passes it 57-39. Resident Roosevelt signs it on November 1, 1913.

Over the next few months, and into 1914 there's tension in Europe and this could lead to a possible war.  If war happens Roosevelt will gladly help our allies.  He plans to meet with Prime Minister Asquith of United Kingdom and Prime Minister Joseph Cook of Austrailia over the tensions in Europe.  Roosevelt says "Americans will help you guys in the war effort."

On June 28, 1914 Frwnz Ferdinand is assassinated.  That summer war breaks out in Europe.  President Roosevelt promises the U.S. will do all they can to help Britain and its allies.

The House debates and finally passes the British Aid Act of 1914 to send money to Britain to help fight the war and make sure they win.  The vote is 240-195 and the Senate vote is 52-44.

As the midterms are coming it looks like the Republicans could pick up some seats.  President Roosevelt campaigns hard for them to win more seats.  Wait and see what happens.
