General Welfare: The concern of the government for the health, peace, morality, and safety of its citizens.

There comes a time in the course of human events when We, The American Public, must stand up and demand that our branches of Government represent us. The People are angry and the time for action is now. To start, I want to personally thank Senator Bernie Sanders for his part in constructing most of the bills that you will see here. The Constitution states that the Federal Government shall provide for the general welfare of all Americans.* It does not state that a handful of people, donors, or any other minority of the wealthy be the only voice of our democratic republic. The Constitution also says nothing of political parties in its edicts; It only references Representatives in the articles. Therefore, partisan politics which keep the Government from providing for the general welfare of The People, must cease. Below are the demands of the vast majority of all Americans.

We the People are no longer going to stand for taxation without representation, and we are demanding that our Government represent us. We demand that the Senate and House of Representatives bundle the bills provided (while keeping the bill’s based subjects divided as we have**) and pass them. We will be watching to see who steps up and who opposes the will of the American People. We will inform all of the public about who is not doing their job, who is not representing them. We will assemble in Washington, DC to let you know how upset we are about this.

The average of polls*** shows that each bill has majority, supermajority, or greater support with The American People. This level of support includes Democrats, Republicans, Independents, and Others. These bills, which provide for the general welfare (good of all Americans), were already introduced into the Senate, but were never passed. We the People will no longer stand for partisan politics and/or the influence of lobbyists and campaign donors, which have kept Congress from accepting, passing, and sending these bills to the President for his signature. Congress is failing its fundamental constitutional duty to represent the will of the people. We, the People, are signing this proclamation that Congress must do its job and represent us by passing these bills for our general welfare.

*As found in 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 defence, 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.” As well as Article. I.Section. 8. “The Congress shall have Power To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises, to pay the Debts and provide for the common Defence and general Welfare of the United States”

    “The Constitution states that the Federal Government shall provide for the general welfare of all Americans.”

    Actually, it doesn’t say that, as shown by your quotation of the Preamble. It says “promote the general welfare,” which isn’t the same thing at all. So, given that the premise of your argument is incorrect, your conclusions can’t be justified either.
