In Act I, Scene I, the dire economic situation also accounts for the introduction of Mr. Henderson from the Internal Revenue Service, who is flatly rejected and sent away from the house. This metaphor for the people's anger at the federal government's operations is introduced with humor, but the anti-government message is loud and clear.
