Protective Tariff passed in 1828 by the Adams Administration
South Carolina’s perspective: state’s rights, tariff of abominations, nullify
Down with the tariff's.
A state could nullify, or refuse to accept, a federal law if it was not in that state's best interests. According to the states’ rights position, the Constitution was an agreement among the states to establish a national government. If an act of the national government went beyond the powers granted by the Constitution, a state had the right to refuse to obey.
Calhoun’s perspective: supports South Carolina
If a state could nullify any federal law it considered unconstitutional, the power of the federal government would cease. He feared nullification could destroy the Union.
Jackson’s perspective: seek the help of Congress
Henry Clay: authors the Compromise Tariff of 1830
Congress: passes the Force Bill of 1830
End Result: Both feel they have claimed victory
