Apparently so.

What a lot of these big-government grifters don’t realize is that the power for the government to tax is far from absolute. The Constitution limits that power markedly, to the point that an income tax required a constitutional amendment in order to be implemented.

Today, the power of the government to tax individuals is limited to “increase in wealth”. Even the liberal justices, I believe, would find a “wealth tax” to be a bridge too far.
