What's on The Tom Sullivan Show 6-8-09

Chrysler Crisis
The Supreme Court will decide today if Chrysler can sell its assets to Italian automaker Fiat.  How will their decision impact GM’s bankruptcy and Obama’s recovery plan?  Plus, will the Penske-Saturn deal completely change how autos are built and sold in this country?  And, Ford CEO Alan Mulally clearly doesn’t want to ruffle any feathers.
Speedy Spending
President Obama wants to ramp up stimulus spending.  Will faster spending curb the unemployment rate?  Where should the money go?  Is Obama just throwing billions away?  Plus, large banks want to pay back their TARP money, Obama’s economic team is feuding and the government’s management reviews.
Instant Fame
A 23-year-old South Dakota rancher has won $232 million dollars by playing the lottery.  But does instant wealth and fame bring happiness?  What should this new millionaire expect?  Tom points to the cases of Susan Boyle and Jon & Kate as reminders that we should all be careful what we wish for.
