A law that raised taxes, and was disliked by the Southern states.
Another tariff that increased taxes. Angered South Carolina further. They nullified again, and threatened to seced or leave the nation. This angered the Government. They disallowed them with "The force bill" and was prepared to send in troops to enforce the law.
Of the southern states, South Carolina was especially upset. They declared that they could nullify, or deny, any law passed by government. The government disagreed, and disallowed them to nullify.
South Carolina was upset that they could not nullify any of the governments laws. They had a bitter resentment towards the federal government, and to its Northern supporters. This would eventually become a cause for the Civil War.
Henry Clay, South Carolina governor, was told to create a compromise. He said that the tariff taxes would be removed by 10% every year. This was passed, but South Carolina was still unhappy that they wouldn't be able to nullify future acts or tariffs.
