Founders belief about State/Local Involvement in Welfare

It seems that I read somewhere that a founder (B Franklin?) once stated that government ought to be involved in the help of less fortunate people, but that the best way would be at the State or Local level. Second, I also think that one or more of the founders wrote about their concept of the states that they would be the work horse of the union. Would anyone happen to know a source of this or was I Dreaming?
