Why It Didn't

- It didn't let the national government tax.
- It required 9 out of 13 state's approval to pass a law, and all 13 in order to amend a law.
- It didn't set up a executive or judicial branch.
- It caused the states to suffer economically, especially when each state started tax one another and hurting trade.
