PMJI late here. James Madison, in discussing specifically the limitations of the "general welfare" provision (either in the Federalist Papers or in his personal correspondence - don't have the cite handy) nailed it down even tighter, stating that the Federal governmet was only authorized to promote the general welfare though the exercise of the specific, limited set of enumerated powers outlined in the Constitution.
