Washington! We don't have enough money to pay back the people.
The present government at the time did not have enough money to pay back their citizens. This was because they did not want to tax, but they should have to become stronger. This was on of the main reasons why the Articles of Confederation failed.
Daniel Shay started a rebellion because the government could not pay back their citizens. The government told the farmers to buy grain and things but wouldn't pay them back so they went into debt. They went into courthouses and started destroying them.
