    What did the Framers mean by apportioned direct taxes?
    Was this meant to be a cryptic reference to financing the federal government (without using the word “requisitions”) by continuing the failed method of requisitions on the states by population apportionment that was the fundamental (and flawed) method of financing the confederational government under the Articles of Confederation?
    Was the requisition on the states method ever used after the ratification and implementation of the Constitution?
