    With Vice President Mike Pence breaking a 50-50 tie, the Senate voted by a hair Tuesday to start debating Republican legislation to tear down much of the Obama health care law. The vote gives President Donald Trump and GOP leaders a crucial initial victory but launches a weeklong debate promising an uncertain final outcome.

These jobs are going to be there and they need trained people. And it allows these students to find careers close to home.”

    US home sales fell in June; would-be buyers can’t find homes

    The decline speaks to a troubling cycle for a U.S. housing market hampered by a worsening shortage of properties to buy. Despite solid demand in a relatively healthy economy for houses, sales listings have been steadily declining for more than two years. The resulting shortage has caused prices to consistently rise faster than wage gains, making it harder for more Americans to build up their net worth by becoming homeowners.

    More reason for rejecting GOP health bill than reviving it

    The latest bill by McConnell, R-Ky. — and it could change anew — would end penalties Democrat Obama's health care law slapped on people without insurance, and on larger companies not offering coverage to workers. It would erase requirements that insurers cover specified medical services, cut the Medicaid health insurance program for the poor and shrink subsidies for many consumers.

This version sticks to the classic flavor of cinnamon, but for a subtle, unique variation, try replacing it with ground cardamom.

    Before being baked, the tortillas need to be steamed a bit so they don't crack when you shape them.

(See recipe for details.)

    Take advantage of the tomato deluge now and make lunch

    There is nothing better than a creamy tomato soup made from fresh summer tomatoes. Today's recipe "Creamy" Tomato Soup takes advantage of the roma tomato deluge and makes lunch. Since the tomatoes are more flavorful this time of year, I merely flash-roast them — about 10 or so minutes will do the trick — which keeps the oven use down to a minimum. (Sometimes, I grill them, uncut, instead, but I'll confess that's a bit messier.)
