Therein lies your fault .... you continue to rabble about the "general welfare clause" using a generally discredited definition in order to justify your position. There is NO requirement for a health care plan - never has been, never will be. You need to get over your misconception that, somehow, the General Welfare clause gives you a mandate for a national health care plan. Your historical perspective is seriously lacking. You take two words, out of context, from the Constitution and try to create a strawman that justifies socializing health care under the guise of a "mandate" for the general welfare, even though "general welfare" is notoriously undefined. I strongly suggest you go back and read the Federalist Papers #41, and then read the Declaration of Independence in its entirety. You will find that both explicitly reject your twisted interpretation of the General Welfare clause.
