Your support of the program is invaluable. Producing the Thom Hartmann Program is a labor of love for the team, but doesn't come without cost. We supply the program to non-profit, community and volunteer radio and cable stations across the US. However, this isn't cost-free and being a supporter through Patreon means you can help us to meet some of the bills, to allow us to continue free supply to the non-profit sector.

As a way of saying thank you, we would like to give you something back for your support at various levels. Every weekday, the live Thom Hartmann Program three hour program is recorded exclusively for Patreon supporters. Unedited, the full three-hour video will be right here on the Patreon page, within a couple of hours of the end of the live program. And we're also providing extra videos exclusive to sponsors.

Just How Seriously Should We Treat The Threat From Graham-Cassidy?

Just how seriously should people be treating the threat from Graham-Cassidy?

Don't believe the Republican lies.

The Graham-Cassidy bill that they're trying to force the Congress without so much as a hearing is the cruelest attempt at Obamacare repeal yet.

It's also complete repudiation of our nation's founding values.

Trumpcare 3.0 - aka the Graham-Cassidy bill - is remarkably cruel - even by Republican standards.

For starters, it phases out Obamacare's Medicaid expansion AND Medicaid as a whole -- that's right -- the entire program!

Graham-Cassidy also slashes federal healthcare funding by billions - and then turns it into block grants that states can do whatever they want with -- and I mean literally do whatever they want with.

They don't have to use that to help people pay for healthcare.

And as if that wasn't bad enough, Graham-Cassidy also allows insurers to discriminate against people with pre-existing conditions.

If it gets signed into law and you're a 40-year-old with a pre-existing condition - like, say, asthma - insurers could slap you with a $4,000 premium surcharge.

If you've got heart disease - that surcharge could rise as high as $18,000.

And if you've got cancer - insurers could make you pay as much as $140,000 extra.

Whatever happened to the general welfare?

Is the Move to Authoritarianism the Worst That Trump Has Done?

Thom plus logo Sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV, are exploding across red state America right now as Republicans continue to refuse to fund programs like Medicaid expansion and sex education in school. It's just one example of the way that hard-core right wing Trump and Koch policies are actually damaging the United States.
