    In this Dec. 14, 2017, photo, House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., speaks on Capitol Hill, in Washington, Thursday, Dec. 14, 2017. Republicans, led by Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, see the tax bill as the answer to their political prayers. It will show Americans they can govern, deliver tax cuts and please Trump. And yet, there are some who suggest that maybe it's not the all-end and be-all. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite)

    For GOP, tax bill's most visible win may be averting failure

    Approval of the tax bill seems certain, and that means a White House signing ceremony, probably by Christmas, and Republicans hope that achievement would overshadow their failure to repeal the Obama health law

But the Affordable Care Act’s troubles aren’t over.

    Unlike gas-powered engines, electric engines don’t require oil changes, have far fewer moving parts and rarely break down, eliminating much of the maintenance that repair shops rely on. The latest electric vehicles can be serviced using parts purchased online or fixed remotely through over-the-air updates.

    Will electric vehicles doom your neighborhood auto mechanic?

    The U.S. auto repair industry employs about 750,000 workers, nearly four times the number of people employed by the coal-mining industry. Though auto mechanics are increasingly skilled and tech-savvy, many experts say, they are not prepared for the end of gas-powered transportation.
