Something else that is irrelevant and as unconsequential as no mention of health care in the Constitution.
The lack of healthcare being mentioned as a responsibility of federal gov in the Constitution is actually quite consequential. If it had been mentioned specifically, like the post office, army, and navy, we would already have UHC. We don't, because that's the consequence of it not being there.

The lack of the FAA being mentioned as a responsibility of federal gov in the Constitution is actually quite consequential. If it had been mentioned specifically, like the post office, army, and navy, we would already have the FAA. We actually, do, despite it's not being there.

Indeed. Just because the government does something does not mean it's specifically mentioned in the Constitution. Those things can always be challenged and ended via the courts, unlike things specifically mentioned like the post office, army, and navy.
Question: Why don't we currently have UHC if the Constitution demanded it from day one?
Answer: Because it isn't specifically mentioned and people disagree upon it, unlike the FAA.
