James Madison


“I cannot…lay my finger on that article of the Constitution which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents.”

Don’t even think of the most misquoted, abused General welfare.

“If Congress can employ money indefinitely…the powers of Congress would subvert the very foundation, the very nature of the limited government established by the people of America.”

Seems our far less educated founders were smarter than our congress today.
