Jackson's "Kitchen Cabinet"
Welcome My Kitchen Cabinet
The Nullification Crisis of 1828-1833
Comand the military to enforce the Nullification Act on South Carolina
After Jackson takes office, he fired most federal employees and replaces them with his supporters. This tradition, in which family members, financial supporters, friends, and fellow party members are provided a federal job persisted for a long time and still does in a certain way. However, it was legally outlawed by the Pendleton act of 1833. Many complained that by appointing officials based on ‘patronage’ rather than merit Jackson was acting like a tyrant.
The Kitchen Cabinet was a term used by political opponents of President of the United States Andrew Jackson to describe his ginger group, the collection of unofficial advisors he consulted in parallel to the United States Cabinet (the "parlor cabinet") following his purge of the cabinet at the end of the Eaton affair and his break with Vice President John C. Calhoun in 1831.[
In 1832, South Carolina passed the Nullification Act and threatened to secede from the Union. Jackson persuaded Congress to pass the force bill, authorizing him to use military force to enforce federal law. South Caroline eventually backed down when a lower tariff was passed in 1832.
