Storyboard Text

  • Virginia Plan 
  • New Jersey Plan
  • Connecticut Compromise
  • New Jersey
  • Both: Lets combine together!! 
  • Virginia
  • Pushed for a legislature of 2 houses with proportional representation in each house and executive and judicial branches to be chosen by legislature.  So it wanted a bicameral legislature, and the more population a state had gave them more representation, and the National government can legislate for states and veto state law. 
  • Trade Compromise
  • Pushed for a single legislative house with equal representation in each state. So they pushed for a unicameral legislature, wanted representation to be state based so each state would be equally represented, and the national government would provide defense but not override state authority. 
  • The Three Fifths Compromise 
  • Solved the problem of representation in Congress, ensuring each state would have 2 members in the Senate thus making Congress Bicameral, and in the HOR each state would receive representatives based on population. 
  • Electoral College
  • Homies instead of having Congress pick the President I have a great idea, why don't we create a thing called the Electoral College and have them pick the President!?
  • Congress shouldn't tax exports, regulate trade in the states, and decided that the President was able to make treaties with other countries. So this solved the disputes over the issue of Commerce also in relation to the slave trade because the states in the North wanted Congress to have the power to regulate commerce, Southern States opposed this fearing Congress would use their authority to end the slave trade. 
  • Three fifths would count as popualtion of that state, which helped the dispute of how each states slave population vaired which could have given other states an unfair advantage. 
  • They decided to have the Electoral College choose the President instead of Congress choosing the President. The article did not provide an effective way to elect a chief executive officer so this solved this problem. 
  • OTHERS: YOOOOOOOOO we are behind that idea 100%, like that is a great idea we should support it!!
