Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid yet again stymied a Republican attempt to vote on repealing the healthcare reform law Thursday evening.

Minority Leader Mitch McConnell proposed that the Senate vote on repeal of Obamacare soon after it returns from vacation in September, The Hill reports. “Let’s have a vote,” McConnell said on the floor. “Is Obamacare making things better or worse? Let’s show the American people what they want. It’s a vote they deserve.”

But Reid denied that possibility. “Republicans are hopelessly stuck in the past,” he said. “They’re stuck in the past when insurance companies were king.” He said the issue was already decided when the Senate rejected an Obamacare repeal that was proposed in March. He also cited the Supreme Court decision in June upholding most of the law.

Earlier this week, McConnell asked for another vote on repeal as part of the Cybersecurity Act, which failed Thursday.
