Cabinet battle discussing the Hamiltons financial plan
Your plan is not going to work!
Whiskey is now taxed:)))
The French Revolution
Hamilton's financial plan included paying off war debts, raising revenues, and creating a national bank. Jefferson opposed Hamilton's plan because he felt that the north was getting too much power. Hamilton won the debate, and then proved that the government will only make laws that will help the country.
In order to create a self supporting government, Hamilton needed to find a steady source of revenue. He placed a tax on Whiskey and it got instituted by congress in 1791. Threats of attacking tax people's houses spread. Hamilton advocated the use of military force. Talks proved fruitless and washington agreed with Hamilton's point of view.
The Outbreak of the French Revolution coincided with the beginning of George Washington's first administration. It began under the same principles that Americans fought for. The United States had won the war of Independence through the military and support for France financially. Jefferson and his followers were inspired by the French Revolution and felt that the neutrality was being betrayed. In the end there was nothing to gain and much to lose.
