Robert Morris' "On Public Credit", an economic plan for the colonies, was submitted to the Continental Congress in 1781. The paper laid out a national funding plan with a reliance on direct taxation, including a head tax on slaves. There was no support for the taxation plan.

Why did President Barack Obama fail to lead in the Debt Ceiling Plan?

'Fail to lead' does not apply. The President inherited a government so steeped in partisan politics that it refuses to have any other priority than their own party line. Now it doesn't matter which party that a president is a member of, the parties are in charge. Until enough of them realize that they are 'waging war' at the expense of the American people and make a determination to change that, there will be no effective plan for any policy, debt, health care cost, unemployment, or any important issue for Americans.
