Money problems again

Money Problems… Again

  • The Tariff Debate

    • Tariff – fee paid by merchants who imported goods

    • Congress passed a high tariff in 1828

    • North love it; South = Tariff of Abominations

      • Nullify – cancel

      • Calhoun argued states could cancel the tariff

      • Secede – break away (the desire of some Southerners)

  • The Webster-Hayne Debate

    • Webster argued for the federal rights; Hayne argued for the State’s rights to nullify

  • Jackson Speaks

    • “Our federal union… must be preserved”

    • Calhoun responded by advocating state’s rights

      • Calhoun resigned as Vice President to speak in Congress

  • Nullification Crisis

    • South Carolina (Calhoun’s state) passed the Nullification Act

    • Jackson compromised to lower the tariff over time

    • Force Bill – allowed the President to used military force to enforce acts of Congress

      • South Carolina accepted the win for Nullification; but nullified the Force Bill
