WHAT?! What do you mean we have no more MONEY!?
I am sorry, my King. That French and Indian War was very expensive.
So.. We need a way to make money from the colonists, then.
Oh, and I have plan. We will tax them!! We'll tax them on goods they use, like sugar, paper goods, and even glass!
We will NOT pay taxes that are UNFAIR!! Sugar prices are too high and so is our RUM!!
After the French and Indian War, Britain was in debt due to spending its money on winning the war.
So the King and Parliament come up with a way to make their money back by taxing the colonists.
In 1763, the King George III and Parliament pass the Sugar Act, trying to force colonists to buy British sugar and stopping smugglers.
