Time To Stop Giving America Away to Billionaires & Big Corporations

Thom plus logo The FoxConn scam is just the latest in a long line of similar scams that companies have run all across the country since the 1980s. Cities and States should compete based on the quality of their infrastructure, which build their wealth and livability over time, instead of how much tax money they can give away, which erodes their wealth and livability over time. Any State in which companies get giant tax breaks for located their operations there should lose their federal highway funds. We need a race to the top instead of a race to the bottom.

Never called or posted before....hope this is the right venue :-) Am very in favor of Warren's wealth tax, and apparently, so was Trump in 1999 https://www.vox.com/2019/1/31/18203999/donald-trump-wealth-tax-14-5-percent. Apparently Trump isn't talking about THAT anymore! More importantly, I am fully convinved that Howard Schultz has been planted by his right wing buddies and/or Russia for the sole purpose of stealing votes in the 2020 election. Hopefully no one will be fooled. Hope Thom or someone brings this up on the show. Interested to know others thoughts. Just my opinion. :-)

Thom's Blog Is On the Move

Hello All

Today, we are closing Thom's blog in this space and moving to a new home.

Please follow us across to hartmannreport.com - this will be the only place going forward to read Thom's blog posts and articles.

From Screwed:
"I think many of us recognize that for all but the wealthiest, life in America is getting increasingly hard. Screwed explores why, showing how this is no accidental process, but rather the product of conscious political choices, choices we can change with enough courage and commitment. Like all of Thom’s great work, it helps show us the way forward."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen and The Impossible Will Take a Little While
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 Cracking the Code:
"In Cracking the Code, Thom Hartmann, America’s most popular, informed, and articulate progressive talk show host and political analyst, tells us what makes humans vulnerable to unscrupulous propagandists and what we can do about it. It is essential reading for all Americans who are fed up with right-wing extremists manipulating our minds and politics to promote agendas contrary to our core values and interests."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning: From Empire to Earth Community and When Corporations Rule the World and board chair of YES! magazine
