"the proposed bank is to consist of an association of persons, for the purpose of creating a joint capital, to be employed, chiefly and essentially, in loans. So far, the object is not only lawful, but it is the mere exercise of a right which the law allows to every individual." - Hamilton.
"the second general phrase is, "to make all laws necessary and proper for carrying into execution the enumerated powers."But they can all be carried into execution without a bank. a bank therefore is not necessary, and consequently not authorized by this phrase. - Jefferson.
