"if any one proposition could command the universal assent of mankind, we might expect it would be this: that the government of the union, though limited in its powers, is supreme within its sphere of action. this would seem to result necessarily from its nature. it is the government of all; its powers are delegated by all; it represents all, and acts for all. though any one state may be willing to control its operations, no state is willing to allow others to control them. the nation, on those subjects on which it can act, must necessarily bind its component parts. although, among the enumerated powers of government, we do not find the word ‘bank’ or ‘incorporation,’ we find the great powers to lay and collect taxes; to borrow money; to regulate commerce; to declare and conduct a war; and to raise and support armies and navies…a government, entrusted with such ample powers…must also be instructed with ample means for their execution.…we are unanimously of opinion, that the law passed by the legislature of maryland, imposing a tax on the bank of the united states, is unconstitutional and void."
