    Which of the two is more likely? No state would have ratified an unlimited federal government.
    The general welfare clause is a limiting introduction to the enumeration of powers that follow. It was, as I understand it, a statement of the types of purposes for which those powers could be used, namely, purposes that server the welfare or good of all.

    When it comes to the ACA Kavanaugh did not actually say it was constitutional. He said that it was indeed a tax and seeing that the tax was not going to be implemented until 2014, the court had no jurisdiction at that particular time.

    Maybe one of the legal experts will refute my comment.........?
