  • McCulloch v. Maryland 1819
  • The state of Maryland hereby institutes a tax on the Second Bank of the United States!
  • A tax?! I, James McCulloch of the Second Bank of the United States, refuse to follow this decree!
  • The Second Bank of the United States of America
  • Maryland Gets Heated
  • Under the 10th Amendment the state of Maryland is legally allowed to tax entities within its borders, therefore you must comply!
  • To the Courts!
  • Order! Order! Here is the case of McCulloch v. Maryland!
  • McCulloch and Maryland Face-Off
  • The Necessary and Proper Clause allows Congress to make laws as they seem fit! The Constitution does not say that Congress cannot make a bank.  The states cannot interfere with this Congressional ruling!
  • The Constitution never gave Congress the right to establish a bank! The Constitution itself leaves all powers, not delegated within the document, to the states.
  • The Decision!
  • The Supreme Court rules unanimously in favor of McCulloch!
  • The Effects of the Ruling
  •  This decision affirmed Congress' power of the "Necessary and Proper Clause." It also affirmed that fact that a state cannot tax a government institution, such as the National Bank, due to the Supremacy Clause
