SNIP:

 

"Deposit insurance was also a long shot in 1933 — President Franklin D. Roosevelt, the Treasury secretary, the comptroller of the currency and the American Bankers Association opposed it.

It is said by some that the present President  wants to be seen like FDR.  Reading that paragraph, especially the mention of the Treas. sec and maybe he is getting the job done in that regard.
