After voting last week to move forward the Republican effort to repeal the health care reform bill, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, R-Va. ,announce a delay in the efforts.  In light of the tragic shooting on Saturday that killed 6 and injured 20 in Arizona, legislative business will be delayed “so that we can take whatever actions may be necessary in light of today’s tragedy.”

The Virginia Republican added:
“Our nation was shocked by the tragedy in Arizona earlier today. Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords, members of her staff, and others became the victims of a senseless act of violence. Congresswoman Giffords serves Arizona’s 8th District with distinction and thoughtful leadership, and it is horrifying that she was exposed to such violence at an event designed to reach the people she represents. I couldn’t agree more with Speaker Boehner, who earlier said that, ‘an attack on one who serves is an attack on all who serve.’ Along with our nation, this institution has suffered a horrible tragedy. We are saddened, mourn those who lost their lives, and stand together in hopeful prayer for the recovery of the victims and their families.”
