    "A General Welfare clause is a section that appeared in many constitutions, as well as in some charters and statutes, which provides that the governing body empowered by the document may enact laws to promote the general welfare of the people, sometimes worded as the public welfare."

    ""Promoting the general welfare" is just a fancy way of saying that we will do things like increase public safety, improve health, and progress the country. "Promoting the general welfare" = "Taking care of every citizen"
