Storyboard Text

  • The Articles of Confederation are not useful for us now and instead this document is creating ruckus in the states. The citizens are doing what they want, now.
  • We will have to come up with a wise plan that will create a government and it should last us generations.
  • I wonder if we will be able to do this and I hope that it will satisfy all the peoples’ wants.
  • How will we solve this problem?
  • This would be fair because if we did it based on the population we smaller states would not get the power we deserved.
  • William Paterson's plan known as the New Jersey Plan is that the smaller states should have the same amount of representatives from each state.
  • Alright, this is true what you said. I have one request which is that our plan is not that popular because Virginia wants the representatives based on population. We don’t have much in population, besides.
  • Our plan is called the New Jersey Plan and it is a fair plan in my opinion. Well, we know that the congress will be one house, but it will still have the power to raise taxes and regulate trade.
  • Could we be able to make separate houses still part of the congress and could we meet everyone's requests?
  • I still feel that we should be able to send the same amount of representatives. so that every state has equal power.
  • We already have a supreme court and based on our plan I think that maybe we could have two more houses.
  • That is an amazing idea, now Virginia and us get what we want.
  • We should make a compromise in which we include two more houses and one house can have an equal amount of representatives. The other house could have representatives based of the state's’ population.
  • Yes indeed, we have two houses of Congress that have an equal amount of representatives that will be sent from each state.
  • Now we are happy that we get equal power in some of the house.
