I love throwing these lavish parties even though there are people starving all over my country!
The king liked to throw extravagant parties even though France was in debt and people in his country were starving.
LET THEM EAT CAKE!
When the king realized they were in a lot of trouble, he tried to tax the nobles.
Oh no! We are in major debt, so I think we should start taxing the nobles!
The first and second estates wanted to use the Medieval Rules of voting, so that they would be sure to win and not get taxed. The Third Estate, however, was unhappy. They would be the only ones getting taxed--again.
Enough! We will be following Medieval Rules when voting.
This is outrageous! The First and Second Estates are obviously going to win!
