  • Hello! Welcome to Philadelphia, year 1781! The articles of confederation have been ratified for a few months now. Lets explore some outcomes.
  • Honored members of the congress, we need a better bridge across the river. The government will finance that, right?
  • we will see what we can do. Goodbye.
  • how can we pay for anything without putting tax on people?
  • I guess we could try asking the states for tax again.
  • we're broke.
  • I heard the congress is going to "ask" the states for tax again!
  • Of course!
  • Haha! How silly. I assume we've already declined?
  • oh man! 
  • I'm sorry. We can not give the town financial aid to build this bridge.
  • Ah! You see? The articles of confederation did not allow the congress to force states to pay taxes. This was a huge flaw . Thanks for joining me on a visit back in time!
