Abstract. The article highlights the political activity of Huey Pierce Long, the USA Senator in the period of 1932–1935. As this period of H.P.

The analysis of the Senate’s activity gives an idea about Long as a remarkable politician, reveals weakness and strength of his program, illustrates Huey Long’s political objectives and ambitions.

Keywords: Great Depression, «New Deal» by F.D. Roosevelt, «Share the Wealth» by Huey P. Long, Louisiana, opposition to F.D. Roosevelt.
