Speaking of welfare queens …

“If a law to donate aid to any farmer or cattleman who has had poor crops or lost his cattle comes within the meaning of the phrase “to provide for the General Welfare of the United States,” why should not similar gifts be made to grocers, shopkeepers, miners, and other businessmen who have made losses through financial depression, or to wage earners out of employment? Why is not their property equally within the purview of the General Welfare?”

— Charles Warren
(1868-1954) American lawyer, legal scholar, awarded Pulitzer Prize in 1923
