After the stamp act failed England
was more determined than ever to find
a way to collect taxes and to let the colonist Know that they were in char

The colonists disagreed with the Stamp Act because the King didn't really need to raise the taxes up. The King was not the one who was fighting and dying,"OK" the King did help a little ,but still not very much.Like the colonists say "No taxation without representation", they want to be represented for what they did"I wood".
