It happened!

“If Congress can employ money indefinitely to the general welfare, and are the
sole and supreme judges of the general welfare, they may take the care of
religion into their own hands; they may appoint teachers in every State, county
and parish and pay them out of their public treasury; they may take into their
own hands the education of children, establishing in like manner schools
throughout the Union; they may assume the provision of the poor; they may
undertake the regulation of all roads other than post-roads; in short, every
thing, from the highest object of state legislation down to the most minute
object of police, would be thrown under the power of Congress. … Were the
power of Congress to be established in the latitude contended for, it would
subvert the very foundations, and transmute the very nature of the limited
Government established by the people of America.”
 
— James Madison

(1751-1836), Father of the Constitution for the USA, 4th US President
