Connecticut Compromise

Storyboard Text

  • We want a unicameral legislature with one vote from each state.
  • We disagree! We want a strong bicameral legislature with representation based on population!
  • Not only that, we also want a strong executive with a national judiciary that has full power!
  • We don't want that! We want a weak and multiple person executive along with a national judiciary that has limited power!
  • Let me settle this debate! Let's compromise and have a bicameral legislature with a House of Representatives. The representation will be based on population.
  • Okay
  • Additionally, there will be a Senate with two members from each state. The Senate will be chosen by the state legislature.
  • That works!
