Almost. The following sentence of the 14th Amendment:
No State shall make or enforce any law which shall abridge the
privileges or immunities of citizens of the United States; nor
shall any State deprive any person of life, liberty, or property,
without due process of law; nor deny to any person within its
jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws.
is interpreted to mean that no State may pass a law contravening any
of the constitutional-right amendments either.

is a tax on income. --Lord Macnaghten (1901) email@example.com
