What's On The Tom Sullivan Show 2-26-09

It Won't Work
President Obama unveiled his '09 budget and it's loaded with big expensive ideas.  But will taxing the rich be enough to cover the cost?  Tom explains why taxing the rich just won't work.
 
Healthcare Reform
President Obama wants to spend over $634B on healthcare reform over the next ten years, but some say in the end it could cost twice that much.  Plus, SCHIP - who isn't covered and why?
 
Car Trouble
GM had one of its worst years ever, posting a loss of $30B in 2008.  And, the UAW is telling its members they have to make "painful" sacrifices in a new agreement with Ford.  Plus which would you prefer, higher gas taxes or a "mileage" tax?
