We need to fight back one vote at a time.

The President today made an oblique verbal swipe at these governors, not that I think the nuance was apprehended by them.

I trust that the good people of Ohio will be successful in removing him from office. I will light a candle for their freedom. I wish elected officials who try to strip us of our Constitutional rights could be arrested and charges and tried for treason, which I believe they are committing; perp walks for Kasich, Walker, Snider, Daniels.

This Ohioan heard or read somewhere that the provisions Kasich and the republicans want to keep in the bill will slyly be part of another piece of legislation--so it really won't matter legislatively. More people need to be in the streets--enough to shut down ALL Ohio business and make Kasich look bad. I also read that Kasich isn't interested in a second term; it's been his MO to come in and do damage and leave--someone (maybe the Kochs) must have promised him a great job after.

Ohio is a truely disgusting place to live these days.

yes Wis first then Ohio then ? GOP has greatly over stepped their bonds like power hungry greedy vultures. They could barely wait to get in power so they could begin taking away workers rights to bargain & demanding even more corp tax cuts. Thats not at all what they campaigned on. Jobs jobs jobs Yet they have done nothing for job creation Voters were duped No surprise there When one is angry one tends not to think clearly .I see much voters remorse now that we have seen GOP 's true colors..which have not changed in years. Its always about corp / billionaires unfunded tax cuts - loopholes and billions in OIL subsides. GOP just voted to keep that gravy train going . Only 3 Dems voted for that. Thom, By the way Obama has shown that he is not at all a wimp as you said to a caller few days back when you were annoyed that Obama has not done all you think he should in 2 1/ 4 yrs, Patience my man Lots to do so little time Love your show .

The other way we're subsidizing Walmart...

Most of us know how taxpayers subsidize Walmart's low wages with billions of dollars in Medicaid, food stamps, and other financial assistance for workers. But, did you know that we're also subsidizing the retail giant by paying the cost of their environmental destruction.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
