Founders’ Quote Daily

“The apportionment of taxes on the various descriptions of property is an act which seems to require the most exact impartiality; yet there is, perhaps, no legislative act in which greater opportunity and temptation are given to a predominant party to trample on the rules of justice.¬† Every shilling which they overburden the inferior number is a shilling saved to their own pockets.”

— James Madison (Federalist No. 10, 23 November 1787)

Reference: Madison, Federalist No. 10
