It is disengenous when conservatives claim that Health Insurance companies are prevented from competing across state lines. I surveyed the top 20 companies in America and every single one of them operated in multiple states, and the majority operate in EVERY state. What the conservatives are really saying is that they want insurers to be able to pick the state with the most lax insurance regulations and have it regulate their activities in every state.

How can / Why are we not talking about the TPP that is happening in Dallas right now, (May 8th-18th)?

9 Countries & 600 Corp's isn't news at any given level in this Country???

How about the G8 & NATO Summits that will be in Chicago, starting on May 18th?

Again, the G8, NATO Summit, this isn't news / talk worthy?

Thanks!

If Biden Wins, Get Ready for Trump to Punish America

Thom plus logo What could happen to America if Trump were to further, severely crash the U.S. economy the day after Joe Biden is announced as the winner of the 2020 presidential race?

As Trump tweeted on June 15, 2019, "if anyone but me takes over... there will be a Market Crash the likes of which has not been seen before!"
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 The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"In an age rife with media-inspired confusion and political cowardice, we yearn for a decent, caring, deeply human soul whose grasp of the problems confronting us provides a light by which we can make our way through the quagmire of lies, distortions, pandering, and hollow self-puffery that strips the American Dream of its promise. How lucky we are, then, to have access to the wit, wisdom, and willingness of Thom Hartmann, who shares with us here that very light, grown out of his own life experience."
Mike Farrell, actor, political activist, and author of Just Call Me Mike and Of Mule and Man
From Screwed:
"If we are going to live in a Democracy, we need to have a healthy middle class. Thom Hartmann shows us how the ‘cons’ have wronged this country, and tells us what needs to be done to reclaim what it is to be American."
Eric Utne, Founder, Utne magazine
