White House press secretary Sean Spicer, President Donald Trump’s embattled spokesman during the first six months of his presidency, is resigning his position, according to two people with knowledge of the decision.

When you should – and shouldn’t – tap your Roth IRA early

Most retirement accounts are for one purpose: The money goes in and stays in until retirement — specifically, until the investor turns 59 1/2. Pull it out early and you’ll have to pay taxes and penalties. Understandably, that lengthy lockdown doesn’t always sit well with younger investors. Sure, you may not need that money now, but there could be plenty of future circumstances in which you might. Having thousands of dollars stashed behind bars won’t bail you out of a job loss, get you out of debt or unlock the door to your first home. Enter the Roth individual retirement account.

House budget blueprint boosts military, cuts food stamps

House Republicans on Tuesday unveiled a budget that makes deep cuts in food stamps and other social safety net programs while boosting military spending by billions, a blueprint that pleases neither conservatives nor moderates. The GOP plan, authored by Budget Chairman Diane Black, R-Tenn., is critical to GOP hopes to deliver on one of President Donald Trump’s top priorities — a Republican-only effort to overhaul the tax code. Unclear, however, is whether GOP leaders can get the measure through the House. Conservatives want deeper spending cuts while moderates are concerned the reductions go too far.

For many years now, Long Islanders have found their own way to address two problems endemic to the region: the growing number of homeowners having trouble keeping up with their mortgages and the urgent need for more affordable housing. Their answer has been accessory apartments in single-family homes: separate, secondary, dwelling units typically of much smaller size than the primary home, either in the house itself or in a carriage house or converted garage. Almost four decades after some Long Island towns began cautiously issuing permits for accessory apartments in single-family homes, this housing type is broadly accepted in Suffolk County even as it remains controversial in much of Nassau.
