Last Call Monday | Listen to this entire show:

Good evening, welcome to The Last Call. I'm Rob Lorei. Coming up we'll hear some soundbites from political figures, a noted investors and some FOX media hosts and then we'll open up the phone lines. The soundbites all figure prominently among the current issues in the presidential race. First we'll hear former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum who is running for the GOP presidential nomination. Three days ago he called President Obama a snob for saying that all young people in the U.S. should go to college. We'll hear that statement along with some context. Then we'll hear Santorum say that he "almost threw up" when he read JFK's 1960 speech on the separation of church and state. Our third bit of sound will be a portion of that famous 1960 speech by then presidential candidate John F. Kennedy. Then we'll hear billionaire investor Warren Buffett speaking this morning on the corporate tax rate. Buffett says historically speaking corporate taxes in this country are low. Finally we'll hear FOX business news host Stewart Varney discuss a new contract for union maids in NYC in which they will have their annual salaries raised from an average of $45,000 to $60,000 over the next seven years. After that we'll take your phone calls.

Good times... good times...

$45,000 to $60,000??? I don’t have a problem with giving more than 30,000 maids a raise of 30% to 35%... and then adding the cost of health care without premiums or co-payments, free dental care and free vision plans on top of that!!! And naturally… the cost of this will be passed on to the consumers… I’m guessing about a 50% price increase above the normal annual increases. I wonder if ALL hotels & motels in NYC are unionized??? Oh well… there’s always “CouchSurfing” and hostels… hey… didn’t I see an iPhone App for bed bug alerts in NYC??? Yeah, good times in the Big Apple…
