Clearly, the Whigs supported protective tariffs and the Democrats supported low tariffs. Tariff revenue was one of the primary sources of federal revenue in this period. For example, a Democratic act was the Tariff of 1832, which was passed to reduce tariffs as treatment for the problem created by the Tariff of Abominations of 1828.
