The House of Representatives is postponing a vote on repealing the new health-care law because of the shooting spree in Tucson that wounded Arizona Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords.

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 health-care 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.
