The House will not revote on the American Health Care Act regardless of the Congressional Budget Office score, Majority Whip Steve Scalise told the Washington Examiner.

"I see no reason why the House would have to take up a second vote on the existing bill," Scalise told the Examiner. "Now, if the Senate makes any changes, obviously we'll consider that."

The CBO scoring of the AHCA is expected Wednesday night.

The House, however, is waiting on the score before it passes it off to the Senate for consideration.

If the CBO score shows that the AHCA would reduce spending by $2 billion, the House will send the bill to the Senate. If the CBO score is not to House Republicans' liking, Scalise told the Examiner he's prepared to "debunk" it.
