Where is this power enumerated in the Constitution? Where does the money to fund this come from? Who wants to see their taxes raised in order to provide increased medical benefits for incarcerated felons? Who wants to see increased benefits for rapists or pedaphiles? Who thinks that they deserve more from society? And on what rational basis? The federal government has no business stealing more from us to pay for this kind of nonsense. Pay for other things we actually need and people actually deserve, like education and roads and bridges. We cannot afford this and they don't deserve it.
