Senate Republican Efforts To Repeal ACA Thwarted

In an ongoing political tennis match, Senate Republicans have once again served up an attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and Democrats have once again lobbed it right back at them.

According to The Hill’s Floor Action Blog, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nv.) blocked a Senate vote on striking down the health care reform law. Republicans amended the repeal language to the Bring Jobs Home Act, which had a procedural vote last week.

This marks the second time this month that Republicans have offered an amendment to repeal the ACA. Earlier in July, they made a similar effort as part of a small-business bill.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has vowed to continue fighting for a repeal vote before the August break.
