    Healthcare is part of welfare, that makes it 29%.
    Last I looked that isn't what the founders and writers of the constitution saw as government responsibility.

    That's a pretty weak argument, wouldn't you say?

    Doesn't it bother you more that our government and people have become so corrupt that 3 of those 4 categories are completely unconstitutional for the Federal government to be involved in and the people arent up in arms about it?

    Must have missed that memo.

    So when did nature establish this need?

    What makes the constitution so sacred? I really don't understand it. The Founding Fathers - as smart as they were - didn't have it all figured out. I mean how could they? How could they predict how American society has evolved over the centuries?
