Jefferson and Hamilton debate the constitutionality of a national bank.

Storyboard Text

  • Gentlemen, I need to consult you on the constitutionality of a national bank.
  • What is this I hear about creating a national bank?
  • The Constitution was written to give the federal government power to carry out its duties, one of which is collecting taxes.
  • Collecting taxes does not require a national bank. It is not a power given to the federal government.
  • Surely a bank is necessary and proper, as Article 1 Section 8 specifies!
  • Gentlemen, I asked you to discuss the matter, not fight about it!
  • Mr. President, Mr. Jefferson refuses to see reason. There is a natural connection between collecting taxes and a bank.
  • If you grant the government power in this matter, there is not telling where it will stop.
  • Say, why not change the subject... Let's discuss the French Revolution!
