What's on The Tom Sullivan Show 1-22-09

90% Salary Cut!
The Obama Administration wants the seven companies that received the most bailout cash to cut the annual salaries of their top 25 executives by about 90 percent from last year.  Is this fair?  Will the best talent from these companies jump ship? 
Tom wants to know what you would do if you were getting a 90% pay cut.
 
Medicare Money
Yesterday, the Senate rejected a measure that would have permanently prevented Medicare payment cuts to doctors! The bill – cleverly excluded from the health care reform bill – would have cost us $247 billion.  What does this measure’s rejection mean for Medicare patients?  Also, are Democrats using tricks to mask the actual cost of their reform plans?
 
Tragedy in Florida
A body found in a Georgia landfill is believed to be that of 7-year-old Somer Thompson, a Florida girl who disappeared on her way home from school earlier this week.  Mark Fuhrman, former LAPD Detective and author of "The Murder Business", talks to Tom about the latest developments and how media attention can affect the outcome of missing persons and homicide cases.
