What's on The Tom Sullivan Show 6-10-09

A Done Deal
The deal between Fiat and Chrysler is finally done.  But is the media misreporting this story? Tom says it's actually the UAW members who are the big winners of last night’s SCOTUS decision.   Also, the Cash-For-Clunkers plan was passed in the House, but is it just another government program that costs a lot of money?
 
Healthcare Dollars
Capitol Hill is working on a health care plan this week but no one seems to know how to pay for it.  President Obama says it’s okay to borrow the money, but that always comes with consequences.  Plus, mortgage rates have spiked and it’s getting harder to buy a house.  Can we pay for healthcare and help the housing market recover?
 
Do you Tweet?
The Pacific island of Palau has agreed to take in 17 Chinese Muslims that are going to be released from Guantanamo Bay.  The tiny island will also receive $200 million for their trouble!  Tom gives a geography lesson and explains why Obama’s plan makes no sense.  And, should your identity be protected on social networks like Twitter?
