Storyboard Text

  • We need to have to have a two house Legislative, But they both should be based on population. Not on a certain number for every state. The Virginia Plan is the way to go!
  • No, No... You've got it all wrong. I agree with you on the two house Legislature, But we need Equal Representation for the houses to vote equally. The New Jersey plan is the way to go!
  • Yeah... I guess that could work out!
  • Never thought of it that way before...
  • Why not Both? Connecticut Came up with one being equal, one being Population based. How's that sound?
  • Slaves are what can really get us big states lots of representation in the Government. All slaves should be counted for representation, but not for taxation. Persons are not what we need taxed on.
  • If your going to have slaves... if you say they shouldn't be counted for taxes they shouldn't be counted for representation. Having slaves counted for representation but not taxation is unfair for small states. Slaves shouldn't be counted representation but taxed on.
  • How about a Compromise? If 3/5 of all persons are counted for representation... everyone has almost an equal representation in the House. And everyone can be happy.
