@kein mitleid: Er, no, the General Welfare clause is... you know what, I'm not going to sit here and explain it to you. You can read about it here
, and you can check Wiki's own sources if you're going to make the "WIKIPEDIA IS A BAD SOURCE" claim.
I'm pretty sure I also used the Constitution back when I was arguing about health care, and even mentioned both the General Welfare clause as well as the 16 Amendment. Is it really me that's the one picking and choosing? You're picking and choosing points in an argument that I made that I made months ago that, again, has nothing to do with the subject at hand.
