To Provide for the General Welfare traces the course of the constitutional controversy over the spending power and the role of that power in driving an expansion in federal activity and authority from 1787 forward. The author documents how Americans came to read their Constitution to help them improve their roads, schools, colleges, cultural institutions, and health care, and to provide themselves with social insurance and safety-net programs for the vulnerable.
