Quote from James Madison 

"With respect to the words general welfare,
I have always regarded them as qualified
by the detail of powers connected with them.
To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be
a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which
there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators."

James Madison
(1751-1836), Father of the Constitution for the USA, 4th US President
