I think you may have just won the award for silliest question in a very long time. The short answer is "No." Pennsylvania has every right to impose a fee for this license. The long answer would require an education in the basic fundamentals of the U.S. Constitution, which I suspect you would refuse to give any credence because you have a preconception of how things are "supposed to work." I would suggest that you start with a basic textbook on High School civics before trying to cherry pick Supreme Court cases out of context.
Sorry if that sounds abrupt but your entire argument is an eye-roller from the word go. I believe the technical term in other fields would be "Whackadoodle." It's the equivalent of going to a group of physicists ad saying, "Gravity pulls me in that direction [pointing], so the earth must be flat because I'd fly off into space if I was on the other side. Isn't that right?"
Stop it. You're citing to a 1943 case that I know you have not Shepardized. States have rights to tax, read your constitution. If you can't find it, then shame on you.
