ObamaCare Health Bill & St. Louis County Trash

I just received an email regarding the ObamaCare Health Bill bouncing around between the Senate and the House and noted the following comment in the e-mail:

“Harry Reid's 383-page amendment and its 2,074-page underlying bill (H.R. 3590) are unconstitutional because:

1) Congress has NO authority to force every American to carry insurance coverage, and,

2) Congress has NO authority to fine employers whose policies do not have the mandated coverage."

The above statements reminded me of our own St. Louis County Council regulation that forces every county residence to have trash and recycling services whether they want or need it or not . . . and with a company not of their choosing, unless they live in a subdivision that rejected the County’s program. (How do you spell “d i s c r i m i n a t i o n?”). And now fining people with the threat of jail for non-compliance. Pleaaasssseeee.

While the financial impact on St. Louis County and its citizens is in the millions, we will now have lawsuits on a national level with the costs set to go into the billions.

I’m not an attorney, but is it legal to pass a law that does not apply to all citizens?
