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 .

Bernie Sanders Could be the Next FDR

Tuesday night, I appeared on the Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell to talk about Elizabeth Warren, the rise of progressives within the Democratic Party, and what this means for Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign.

At one point in our discussion, the conversation turned to whether Bernie represents the closest thing to an Elizabeth Warren candidacy.

From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Beneath the success and rise of American enterprise is an untold history that is antithetical to every value Americans hold dear. This is a seminal work, a godsend really, a clear message to every citizen about the need to reform our country, laws, and companies."
Paul Hawken, coauthor of Natural Capitalism and author of The Ecology of Commerce
From Screwed:
"Thom Hartmann’s book explains in simple language and with concrete research the details of the Neo-con’s war against the American middle class. It proves what many have intuited and serves to remind us that without a healthy, employed, and vital middle class, America is no more than the richest Third World country on the planet."
Peter Coyote, Actor and author of Sleeping Where I Fall
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
