Yes it is clear what the preamble says the constitution is there to try achieve. It does not do the same thing as the constitution, does it? It might be used to gain some insight to what is written in the constitition but do you know of any court cases that have used it as a deciding factor in the trial?

Why not? Are you saying helping out small businesses in trouble CANNOT be deemed as for general welfare? I would certainly think someone can make a case for that. But yes, I understand your point. If you think it is a good idea, it should be squeezed in. Somebody else's idea, maybe not.
