    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer of New York, followed by Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., look at a poster at the start of a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, Wednesday, October 4, 2017, urging Republicans to abandon cuts to Medicare and Medicaid.

    Why millennials should care about Medicare right now

    Lawmakers understand that cutting current retirees’ Medicare benefits is a political nonstarter. Older people vote, and they have one of the most powerful lobbyists, AARP, advocating on their behalf. Younger people? Not so much. Politicians will be tempted to foist the biggest cuts on people farther away from retirement (who are presumably paying less attention).

    Among the main changes to mortgage loans in the past year or two are the availability of low down-payment loans, a loosening of the debt-to-income ratio requirements and easing of rules about how student loan payments are calculated.

    If you’re considering what to do after high school, or counseling someone who is, here’s how to navigate the options for achieving your very own American dream.
