What's on The Tom Sullivan Show 10-29-09

Clunker Program
The economy grew 3.5% in the third quarter - a sign some say marks the end of the recession. But will it last? Also, the “Cash-For-Clunkers” program ultimately cost taxpayers $24,000 per car. Should they extend the first-time homebuyer tax credit?  Plus, the White House overstated the number of jobs created by the stimulus!
 
Millionaire Tax
Speaker Pelosi unveiled her health care plan today. The bill dropped the “Cadillac” health plan tax but includes a “millionaire tax”! Plus, IBM is going to put an end to co-pays at the doctor's office as a way to encourage employees to get checkups and stay healthy. But does that really make sense?
 
Photo-Op?
President Obama made an early morning visit to the Dover Air Force base to honor the return of 18 fallen soldiers killed in Afghanistan this week. But some say the trip was really just a photo op.  Was the White House trying to distract the media from Obama's indecision about sending more troops to Afghanistan?
