    “promote the general welfare”, hmm, those framers of the Constitution were silly enough to think there was a “social contract”.

    pro·mote [pruh-moht] 1. to help or encourage to exist or flourish; further:
    Not to force, dictate, regulate, legislate or propagate but to encourage.

    gen·er·al [jen-er-uhl] adjective
    1.of or pertaining to all persons…..
    ALL is the pertinent word. We are not to formulate policy trying to help just the poor, the uninsured, the lower class, the children, the gays, the Christians, the females, blacks, whites, dogs, cats……etc. Placing impositions on one person to benefit another is unconstitutional. It’s robbing Peter to pay Paul. No one benefits because it is not generally beneficial. The Govn. must not implement policy that does not benefit ALL.

    wel·fare [wel-fair] noun
    1.the good fortune, health, happiness, prosperity, etc., of a person, group, or organization; well-being:

    Nothing about the Progressive agenda has this definition as it’s goal. Nothing being done in Washington will ever achieve these standards.

    ^Okay, if you wanna’ get “picky”, those same founding fathers actually considered “all” to mean white male property owners. Hmm, can anyone say “Koch brothers”??

    Churchie, I think you’re confusing that story with the “commerce clause”.
