    U.S. Rep. Aaron Schock said a “no brainer” bill that will give people with disabilities new freedom to set aside savings has won passage in Congress. “Unfortunately right now our society penalizes folks who are living with a disability from creating a nest egg and providing for themselves and doing what all of us think is the responsible thing of saving for a rainy day,” Schock said.

    It's not too late to make sure your furnace is working properly
