Jefferson and Hamilton

Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton are great picks for the cabinet because they have experience dealing with politics. Seen in the convention for the constitution. Hamilton and Jefferson are also on opposite political factions which George would benefit from because he would hear both sides of the story so his opinions would not be biased.

Elastic Clause

The elastic clause is vital to our country because in order maintain our wealth we need to have a bank. The only way we can have a bank is by using the elastic clause. The elastic clause is an article in the constitution that says congress has the authority to do whatever is necessary and proper.


The way Washington and Hamilton will get us out of debt is by imposing tariffs which are taxes on imported goods. They will also have taxes that are not too high, but just enough to work on getting us out of debt.

D.C. for the capitol.

D.C. is a good location for the capitol because it is in the middle of our country and is easily defended. It's good to have the capitol in the middle because no side can claim it as on their side that is important because it can prevent conflict.
