Transcript of The Great Compromise

The Great Compromise
Pro/Con 1
Pro-Larger states were conceded representation by population in the house of representatives.
Con-Led to conflict between the congress and the President when declaring war that still persists to today.
Pro/Con 2
Pro/Con 3
pro- Each state, no matter how big or small, was appeased by the representation given to them through the compromise.
con- Although some states may have been larger, and contained a larger population, they would still only get 2 senators, same as the small states.
Long Term Effects
The HR reached a member cap, and due to the great compromise the representatives are decided by region. This means 2 things:
1: From now on when a state receives a seat in the HR, another state must lose one.
2: As population increases, each representative will count for more and more citizens.
