I don't think that attacking progressives or conservatives is a reasonable course of discussion. Most of us want the same things. We just disagree on the method of attaining them.
No...not's used to give people things government say's they "need".

"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"

"The concern of the government for the health, peace, morality, and safety of its citizens. Providing for the welfare of the general public is a basic goal of government."
