      But the Constitution is filled with provisions that grant Congress or the States specific power to legislate in certain areas; these granted powers are always subject to the limitation that they may not be exercised in a way that violates other specific provisions of the Constitution. For example, Congress is granted broad power to "lay and collect Taxes,"*fn2 but the taxing power, broad as it is, may not be invoked in such a way as to violate the privilege against self-incrimination.*fn3  Williams v. Rhodes, 1968.SCT.42506 <http://www.versuslaw.com>¶ 21; 393 U.S. 23 (1968).

       

      [119]               *fn2 Art. I, § 8, cl. 1.

       

      [120]               *fn3 Marchetti v. United States, 390 U.S. 39 (1968); Grosso v. United States, 390 U.S. 62 (1968).
