House Puts off Vote on Healthcare Repeal

Saturday, 08 January 2011 09:10 PM

WASHINGTON (AP) — The House of Representatives is postponing a vote on repealing the recently enacted healthcare law because of the shooting in Arizona that wounded Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords and killed a federal judge.

House Majority Leader Eric Cantor said all legislative action "is being postponed so that we can take whatever actions may be necessary in light of today's tragedy."

The House was scheduled to vote Wednesday on repealing the massive healthcare law. Republicans took control of the House last week after taking away 63 seats from Democrats in midterm elections in which the new law was a key issue.
