Storyboard Text

  • The government lacked the power to tax
  • The Articles of Confederation has so many problems.
  • We need to tax the states, but we can’t.
  • We should be able to tax them if we want!
  • Nine states were needed to approve a law
  • I think we should create a law saying we can tax all the states
  • We only need nine states to pass it!
  • Many of the states made their own money
  • We could always just make our own money like the states do
  • I wish we could! The states have enough to give us some since they can make it.
  • The government did not have the power to enforce its laws
  • Even if we pass a law to tax the states we have no way to make them follow it.
  • I know you’re right, but it was a good idea!
  • The government depended on states to provide its soliders
  • If we passed a law to tax them it might make them so mad that they don’t give us any soliders
  • You’re right we need their soldiers and I don’t want to make them mad
  • Even if we wanted to change or add anything to the Articles of Confederation everyone would have to agree to it if we voted on it 
  • Amendments to the Articles required a unanimous vote
  • Who knows maybe someday it will happen
  • Well we tried to think of something. We need something better than the Articles of Confederation
