For one of FDR's programs to be "unconstitutional" by definition, it generally would have been ruled so by the US Supreme Court. You most likely will recall that FDR considered increasing the number of the sitting judges on the US Supreme Court during his first term and was forced to abandon the idea because of opposition. He wanted to do so because the high court had ruled against several of his economic stimulus agencies and programs.Check the activity of the US Supreme Court about one year into the first FDR term and thereafter and you should see your answer coming together.
