The Jackson Papers
Is Jackson good or bad?
Killing the National Bank
Do you also remember McCulloch v. Maryland? Maryland wanted to create a tax on the National bank congress created in their land. But Congress refused to pay the tax, this argument lasted all the way to the Supreme Court, the Supreme Court declared the National Bank was right and Just, and necessary for Congress to do its Job. But Jackson disagrees and wants it destroyed, and he does destroy it, even though the SupremeCourt declares the National Bank appropriate.
The Nullification Crisis
In 1832, Jackson had a series of taxes, the tax of 1828 and 1832, South Carolina didn't want to pay the taxes. They threatened to remove themselves from the Union, Jackson threatened them back. Jackson got a bill from Congress that allowed him to march onto South Carolina, Jackson also threatened to hang their Governor (Also his Vice President). South Carolina complied but Jackson agreed to have them pay less taxes.
Letter from a Working Class Person (Positive)
Hello Andrew, I'm glad you have allowed a lot more people to vote, I agree with you destroying the National Bank because the National bank is a Federal Building, you promised to empower the common man and I'm glad you weakened the Federal Government, and I will continue to vote you in your next term.
Letter from the Governor of South Carolina (Negative)
Hello President Jackson, I want you to remove our taxes or we will remove ourselves from the Union, you threatened to hang me, and march your Army onto our State, If you will not remove the taxes, we will settle with less taxes than normal.
