    You're so partisan that you can't recognize that there are many issues that the American people can come together on. I actually feel bad for you. You have a sad life.

    except with such a broken congress, he has not much way to accomplish any of that

    Perhaps not as much but not all who pay taxes use all the roads that are paved. They are paying to pave it for others to drive on. All those programs are social to benefit society.

    those who don't drive on roads still get mail or welfare checks etc delivered by vehicles that travel on the roads. You could probably count on one hand the number of people old enough to say read and write who could claim no benefits from the roads. many people do not benefit from stuff like AFDC or "welfare" or Medicaid etc

    Don't forget that AFDC and Food Stamps are such wonderful programs that they had to enter witness protection under the names TANF and SNAP.
    Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach a man to fish and he stops voting for the Free Fish party.

    when you ask collectivists why such programs are authorized by the constitution, we hear "general welfare"

    now roads and the army and the police benefit the entire society. those programs benefit the general welfare. Giving some people benefits paid for by others is hardly "the general welfare"

    They benefit society in that a rising tide lifts all boats. Like your next door neighbor being on welfare keeps his house while a next door neighbor who loses their house because there is no welfare drags your property value down with his foreclosure.
