You think "promote the general welfare" means it's the government's role to ensure half the country is dependent on the other half?<quoted text>
Well Carol, here's the preamble to the Constitution;
"We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
Do you know what "promote the general welfare means"? It means that we don't let our citizens go hungry or homeless if we can help it. The safety net you keep referring to is under assault by the GOP. The Ryan budget was called immoral by the Conference of Catholic Bishops which is one of the most conservative groups in the country.
But keep on dodging the original questions Carol.
With this government, perhaps, but not the intention of the founders.
You'd be surprised how many people will find a way not to go hungry if they had no choice but to work.
This is all I could find about your claim about Catholics calling Ryan's budget immoral. Their comments were actually nowhere near your interpretation - in fact just the opposite.
Maybe you can post something else.
