    oh one more question did American colonists not like this action because it made the British more independent of the colonial legislatures and better able to enforce British orders and laws?

  • social studies -

    All of that. By this time the colonists were tired of being treated like second class citizens. They were incensed that the British could impose taxes on them while the colonists had voice in these taxes. They were more than ready for independence.

    Ah ok! Thank you so much your a life saver!

    *Had NO voice in these taxes.
