That was the INTENT of the Founders and the PEOPLE of this Country. The Constitution is clear as are the DESIRES of those that drafted it and passed it. We have tons of material to support this reality. From the framers, From the people. The Bill of Rights was the will of the people to ENSURE a limit on the Federal Government. Even though the Founders pointed out that ONLY those powers SPECIFICALLY listed in the Constitution were granted to the Federal Government. There is no General welfare clause that grants any and all power to the Federal Government. If there were the 10th Amendment would be pointless as would the words of the people that WROTE and supported the Constitution. It simply grants the power to use taxes to the Federal Government when using the listed powers of the Federal Government. Anyone that claims otherwise is ignorant of the facts and history of this Country, the Bill of Rights, the intent of the framers and the Constitution itself.
