Middle class Texans who saw no federal help in paying for Obamacare will get some relief under the new GOP health care plan.

U.S. airlines are doing better than ever at taking care of passengers’ luggage.
Through a combination of new technologies that allow bags to be tracked in nearly real-time and a renewed focus on the basics of handling luggage, airlines last year reported the lowest rate of mishandled bags — those lost, damaged or delayed — since the Department of Transportation began keeping track in 1987.
The rise of baggage fees also has led passengers to check fewer bags or stick to a single carry-on, leaving fewer bags for airlines to mishandle on a per-passenger basis.
Also, carriers grounded more than 5,300 trips ahead of a winter storm that threatens to batter the Northeast United States.
