Hamilton's Financial Plan
We can't use your plan!
I think we should go neutral
No that would be a betrayal to France
Hamilton and Jefferson disagreed about how they should get out of debt after the war. Hamilton supposed a plan to pay off all war debts, raise government revenues, and create a national bank. Jefferson didn’t believe that they should use Hamilton’s plan because it would give the government to much power. They both want to do what is best for the government in the future and meet up to Washington’s approval.
President Washington and Hamilton started taxing whiskey that farmers made and produced. The farmers became very angry so they started destroying tax inspector homes and protesting. Washington soon gathered 13,000 militia troops and went to Pennsylvania to show they could keep control and stop the rebels from attacking. Washington want to show that he could keep the country incontrol even in a crisis.
The French started rebelling against the government and the government can’t restrict America's freedom. Hamilton felt that they should go neutral on each side, Britain and France and all the money they needed to pay off would be forgotten. Jefferson believed that going neutral would be a betrayal to the French and that French needs Americas support. Washington wanted to choose what was best and listened to Hamilton’s logical sense.
