What is supposed to be the role of the federal government in the United States?

The LIMITED "role", duties and authorities of the US federal government are spelled out clearly in the Constitution of the United States. The federal government is supposed to be a weak body dealing with international activities and leaving the states to, for the most part, take care of themselves. There is NO mention of health care, housing, communist welfare state programs, foreign aid absent a treaty, open borders, fighting the world's wars for it, bailing out failing private companies, and interfering in education are NOT mentioned and are NOT areas in which the federal government has a role.
Socrates, I DEFY you to cite anything resembling that lie in the Constitution. BETCHA CAN'T, comrade!! I always thought Socrates was supposed to be intelligent.

To provide for the needs of the country as a whole. States handle needs of the people of their respective states. Any conflicts between states is handled by the Federal government too.

To establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity
It's right there in the first paragraph of the US Constitution, dear.
