What's On The Tom Sullivan Show 3-10-09

Merit Pay
President Obama's education agenda includes a 'merit pay' system for teachers.  Why are teachers' unions opposed to that?  Should the best teachers be rewarded with higher salaries?
"Cap and Trade"
President Obama's "cap and trade" plan would tax polluters to encourage them to reduce carbon emissions.  Tom will explain what the plan really is, and how it will affect those big tax cuts the President promised the lower and middle classes.  Plus, the House has secretly scrapped their plans to become "carbon neutral"!
Stem Cell Debate
Yesterday President Obama reversed Bush's policy and expanded funding for embryonic stem cell research.  He says sound science and moral values can work together, but conservatives disagree.  Is stem cell research necessary or morally wrong?
