There's no Constitutional authority for the Feds to be involved in welfare for any special interest group. That includes victim groups. General as in the "general welfare" refers to the nation as a whole. Spending is supposed to be limited to the enumerated powers under Congress, not just because someone likes the idea something would benefit every individual. That's collectivist thinking.
Your interpretation of the constitution is not the final authority on how to interpret the constitution. And the fact that no Republicans are saying welfare is unconstitutional even though they hate it says your interpretation is wrong.
