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 Post-Citizens United Era.

This month marks five years since the United States Supreme Court made their infamous ruling in the case of Citizens United v. FEC. That ruling turned a century of legal precedent on its head with the declaration that corporations have a First Amendment right to spend money in elections. And, that ruling opened the floodgates to massive spending levels in our political process.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom is a national treasure. Read him, embrace him, learn from him, and follow him as we all work for social change."
Robert Greenwald, political activist and founder and president of Brave New Films
From Cracking the Code:
"Thom Hartmann ought to be bronzed. His new book sets off from the same high plane as the last and offers explicit tools and how-to advice that will allow you to see, hear, and feel propaganda when it's directed at you and use the same techniques to refute it. His book would make a deaf-mute a better communicator. I want him on my reading table every day, and if you try one of his books, so will you."
Peter Coyote, actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
