Alexander Hamilton would say it did when he argued for creating a National Bank. He actually cited the clause in his written defense of the National Bank. Now who is right, Hamilton or Nichols? Both are right. That's the issue with this Clause. It's open to interpretation by everyone. You reply is valid but is no more valid than any other person's OPINION of this clause. Therefore Obama and the Dems see is necessary and proper to pass health care legislation.
