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

"Promote the general welfare" D'OOOOOOH!


Liberals like to pretend that gov't health care is promoting the general welfare. It is no such thing. It's a promotion of specific welfare, the welfare of a minority of individuals at the expense of everyone else who would be better off under a private system. How is the "general welfare" promoted when the health care of a majority of the population deteriorates in quality while growing more expensive, so that a small minority can have free care that it currently doesn't have?

Exactly, it isn't.
