Thomas Jefferson

A quote from Thomas Jefferson

We might hope to see the finances of the Union as clear and intelligible as a merchant's books, so that every member of Congress and every man of any mind in the Union should be able to comprehend them, to investigate abuses, and consequently to control them.

— Letter to his Secretary of the Treasury, Albert Gallatin [April 1st, 1802]
