    The colonies hated the taxes imposed by King George, the King had control of taxation. The colonies wanted a separation of powers, so the Executive did not gain the power of the purse (or taxes).

    Wait...no...I was looking up what "bicameral" meant and now I'm confused...is the answer d because we have the senate and the house of representatives? Or is it still b? Sorry...I think I just confused myself! ;)
