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 The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"With the ever-growing influence of corporate CEOs and their right-wing allies in all aspects of American life, Hartmann’s work is more relevant than ever. Throughout his career, Hartmann has spoken compellingly about the value of people-centered democracy and the challenges that millions of ordinary Americans face today as a result of a dogma dedicated to putting profit above all else. This collection is a rousing call for Americans to work together and put people first again."
Richard Trumka, President, AFL-CIO
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Through compelling personal stories, Hartmann presents a dramatic and deeply disturbing picture of humans as a profoundly troubled species. Hope lies in his inspiring vision of our enormous unrealized potential and his description of the path to its realization."
David Korten, author of Agenda for a New Economy, The Great Turning, and When Corporations Rule the World
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
