Sen. Ted Cruz still is not a "yes" vote on the Graham-Cassidy health care bill, according to a Cruz aide, despite changes made in a new version of the legislation released publicly Monday morning. These changes include more conservative regulatory provisions. It's not clear why Cruz doesn't support the bill at this time.

Why this matters: Cruz is the third Republican senator to say he opposes the bill. It only takes three to kill it.
