Jackson vs. The Bank
By emahri, Updated
Thomas Jefferson didn't believe a national bank was accurately aligned with the Constitution. So, he decided when he became president, he wanted to veto the bank or "kill" it. Many congressman, like Clay and Bittle , tried to stop him from doing this.
It is you again Clay? For why are you here? You cannot stop me from vetoing this foolish idea of a bank.
Veto? President Jackson, oh that wouldn't be right. We need this bank. How else do you expect us to pay off this debt? It's bad enough we're adding onto it with all of these employments that we can't afford to give salary for!
Save your tears! I will not change my mind. My people will stay on my side and I will destroy this bank!
Clay is right! As president of the bank, I will not allow this to happen!
Jackson you cannot do this! This goes against everything we've worked for. This country is barely old enough to have economic conflicts!
VETO As President, I declare the national bank a veto due to the fact of it's sin against the Constitution.
NO! Jackson! How did this happen? Just wait Jackson! You'll see the consequences!
HAHA! I HAVE DONE IT! I HAVE TOLD YOU MY PLANS WERE TO BE DONE!
This will come back to you Jackson! When our country is in defeat, we will put sin on you!
