Healthcare repeal debate delayed, toned down

Politico, January 10, 2011
Lawmakers on Sunday said they still expect to have a spirited but delayed and toned-down debate to repeal the healthcare reform law after Saturday's shooting in Arizona. Within hours of the massacre, Majority Leader Eric Cantor postponed the House's entire legislative agenda for the week, including the vote on repealing the law, which was planned for Wednesday. His office said he'll make further announcements on the schedule this week. Republicans said Sunday that repealing health reform is still a priority, but not the focus in Congress next week.
