Another Senate Vote To Repeal The Health Law? Harry Reid Says No.
Roll Call: Harry Reid Rejects Another Health Care Vote
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) this evening rejected a plan offered by Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) to set up a vote on repealing the 2010 health care law before the end of September. "Our Republican friends are hopelessly stuck in the past," Reid said before objecting to a GOP unanimous consent request. "They continue to want to fight battles that are already over." Reid noted that the Supreme Court deemed the law constitutional last month, after it was challenged by several Republican attorneys general (Sanchez, 8/2).
