Social programs are not enumerated in the General Welfare clause. You are inferring that power based on a populist Supreme Court ruling from the mid-1930s that overturned 150 years of precedent. By contrast, Article I Section 9 explicitly enumerates that Congress and shall have the power to raise a...Jump to post
