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 .

Welcome to the New Corporate Feudalism

Feudalism is back, with a vengeance.

Right now, the Wisconsin legislature is considering a bill that would make Wisconsin the nation’s 25th right-to-work-for-less state. All signs point to this bill becoming law. The state senate passed it by a margin of 17 to 15 last week, and Republican Governor Scott Walker, who supports right-to-work-for-less laws, said he will sign it if it reaches his desk.

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Right through the worst of the Bush years and into the present, Thom Hartmann has been one of the very few voices constantly willing to tell the truth. Rank him up there with Jon Stewart, Bill Moyers, and Paul Krugman for having the sheer persistent courage of his convictions."
Bill McKibben, author of Eaarth
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a creative thinker and committed small-d democrat. He has dealt with a wide range of topics throughout his life, and this book provides an excellent cross section. The Thom Hartmann Reader will make people both angry and motivated to act."
Dean Baker, economist and author of Plunder and Blunder, False Profits, and Taking Economics Seriously
From Screwed:
"Once again, Thom Hartmann hits the bull’s eye with a much needed exposé of the so-called ‘free market.’ Anyone concerned about the future of our nation needs to read Screwed now."
Michael Toms, Founding President, New Dimensions World Broadcasting Network and author of A Time For Choices: Deep Dialogues for Deep Democracy
