House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) announced this evening that the House will postpone all votes next week, including the repeal of health care reform, in the wake of the mass shooting in Arizona in which Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (D) was shot in the head.
In a statement, Cantor said:
All legislation currently scheduled to be considered by the House of Representatives next week is being postponed so that we can take whatever actions may be necessary in light of today’s tragedy. Further information relating to a revised House schedule will be released tomorrow.
