Storyboard Text

  • The Virginia Plan
  • We believe that states should have representation based on their size. The bigger the state the more votes they should be allowed to have.
  • Its only fair!
  • The New Jersey Plan
  • Are you serious? Us small states would have little to no say in things. We would have no power and the big states would make every decision regardless of our beliefs.
  • Small states should have the same amount of votes as all other states.
  • The Great Compromise
  • Based on Population (HOR)
  • The House Of Representatives.
  • With an automatic 2 Senators (S)
  • We shall have 2 houses of Congress.
  • And the Senate.
  • ???
  • We have so many slaves. I feel as though they should be counted in our population.
  • The bigger our population the more votes we would get in Congress.
  • But what about us larger states who already have a large population?
  • We don't have very many slaves, if any.
  • If slaves were counted our size would have no purpose. Small states would have the same amount of votes as larger ones.
  • 3/5 in population
  • We still keep the benefit of our size.
  • We receive more votes in Congress
  • Slaves are to be counted as 3/5 of a person.
  • and 3/5 in taxation
