  • Students met in their Hamilton/ Jefferson groups to consider their positions and the arguments for those positions on the following topics:
    • Assumption of state/ federal debt
    • Bank of the United States
    • Whiskey Excise tax
    • protective tariff
  • Students need to be very clear on the distinction between strict and loose construction and what is the significance of Article I, Section VIII, paragraph 18 of the U.S. Constitution.  Extra credit for the first 3 students who comment on this post with a reasonable explanation. Offer expires Friday, Oct. 19 at 2:50 p.m.
