  • Jacques Necker, the debt is not ours to pay but those of the the third estate. With the high taxes we can make the money back easy.
  • But your highness we're also losing money because no one wishes to trade with us due to our previous conflicts.
  • ...and kept pushing...
  • We swear an oath that we will not leave till king Louis gives us all of our demands!
  • You don't seem to get it Necker. it does not matter the nobles are fine. It's not our burden to bare our money is safe. But just to be sure I'll set up a meeting to increase the taxes for the 3rd estate.
