Webster Defends Union
In 1830 two senators, Robert Hayne and Daniel Webster, got into a massive debate about Callhoun's ideas. Robert Hayne was the Senator for South Carolina and he was a supporter for Calhoun's ideas about states' rights and the power of a state to nullify a law/tax. Daniel Webster was the Senator for Massachusetts. In his debate with Hayne, he had three main points that the union stood by which were, The states never made up the nation, the people made up the nation, The federal government.
