We are gathered here today for one reason and one reason only, to resolve the issue
I'm here to Sue Mr.McCulloch for collection of debt.
With all due respect I am innocent.
Martin: The constitution did not give the national government to create a bank
Webster: I am aware that the power to create a bank was not expressed in the constitution but they have have the ability to pass laws that are necessary. The national government has the final authority
The problem was Maryland sued James McCulloch for collection of debt .
Marshall: No state can use its power to tax the national government
John Marshall: Chief JusticeJames McCulloch: Cashier of the Baltimore Branch of the Bank Daniel Webster: represented the national government William Pinkney: represented the national government Luther Martin represented Maryland
With this ruling we can now further develop nationalism and create a unified economy
The national government must be obeyed. Article I, section 8 The "Necessary and Proper" clause gave congress the power to establish a national bank.
Marshall established the concept of national supremacy. Marshall's ruling was based on the supremacy clause.
If the opposing argument won it would have led to the national government unable to expand the nation at the time.
