"The right to tax is the right to destroy."
The State of Maryland voted to tax all bank business not done with state banks. Andrew McCulloch, who worked in the Baltimore branch of the Bank of the United States, refused to pay the tax. The State of Maryland sued.
Chief Justice John Marshall wrote that the federal government did indeed have the right and power to set up a federal bank. "The right to tax is the right to destroy," he wrote, and the states should not have that power over the federal government.
This gives more power to the national government.
