>> "Provide for the common defense"......d'uh! <<

I'm afraid you may have just stepped in it, based on what follows that clause.

The difference, of course, is that outside of a vague, fluffy preamble that merely lists the intentions of forming a government rather than giving specific powers, the requirement to maintain a military is rather clear in the meat of the document in its reference to an army and navy in Article II.

Don't see health care listed there.
