House GOP may have to vote again on healthcare bill

House Republicans, who voted on the American Health Care Act before the Congressional Budget Office scored the bill, might have to take another vote on the measure if the CBO finds it doesn't reduce spending by at least $2 billion.

The bill has yet to be sent to the Senate as the House awaits the CBO’s report to see if it meets budget reconciliation rules. If it doesn't, it will need 60 Senate votes to pass instead of 51—a threshold that would be impossible without support from at least some Democrats.
