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.

Do We Need a Marshall Plan for Central America?
If he wanted to stop refugees from appearing at our southern border, he would be working with those three countries, which we devastated with the Reagan's illegal Contra war, to build strong democracies and resilient economic and energy infrastructures. Instead, he is doing the opposite. Just like prison was the cornerstone of Nixon's brutal and racist War On Drugs and those increased American violence and devastated poor American communities, Trump's policies are producing more refugees, which is exactly what he wants so that he can point to all those brown people coming from the south and whip up his white racist base just in time for the next election.
This is Lee Atwater all over again, only without the sophistication and veneer of civilization. We need to join with Mexico to create a new Marshall plan for Central America.
