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.

Pakistan Faces Unjust World Order

Sajjad shaukat

Wait the bastardos out!

Bone-er has embarrassed himself by succumbing to the GOP paranoia; specifically the Tea Party. We may not be able to roll back the Reagan tax cuts, which went from 70% in 1982 to 50%; and, again, he cut the marginal tax rate to 28% in 1986. In 1993 Clinton, and Congress passed, with no GOP support, an increase to 39.6%. G. W.

deficit question

I understand the build up of the deficit up to Obama..please correct me if I'm wrong:

Regan - +1T

Bush Sr +1T

Clinton +1T (but balanced budget and created a plan to eliminate deficit w/in 10 years)

Bush Jr+5.7T

This equals $8.7T and we are much higher..when I explain this to people, they say.."Okay..but the deficit today is $14.4T" and they blame the balance on Obama.

Can you explain the gap from Bush Jr to Obama?

Thank you!

A Warm Thank You to Thom Hartmann

Tuesday, July 26, 2011


Today and on many other days Thom Hartmann urges listeners to engage personally in the democratic process...tag you are it.

I wish to extend my gratitude and thanks to Thom for his encouragement and humanity. You have a great smile Thom. That's one of the things that's going to get us through all of this.

Today I engaged and sent messages to Senator Dick Durban and Congressman Mike Quigley. Following is the text:

Tax cuts and job creation

"Create jobs or else"

Obviously, tax cuts don't necessarily create jobs and it's time for the Democrats to call the GOP bluff. With 15 months before the 2012 election, the Democrats need to act quickly.

Creat jobs or lose the Bush tax cuts, loop-holes, etc. We could even offer the incentive to actually cut taxes when the economy improves.

cuts to assistance programs equal to gifts to the rich

This morning (7/26/11) Thom gave a list of assistance programs to poor, sick, working class, that have been cut, and the list of tax cuts,subsidies, and gifts to the rich which are roughly equivalant in dollar value.

Does anyone have a copy of, link to, or know a way I can find that list?


Instant run-off voting has its problems too. A good scholarly book on the subject is called Gaming the Vote by William Poundstone.

No More Presidential Immunity!

When Ronald Reagan committed treason in 1980 to get elected, Attorney General Bill Barr shut down the investigation in 1992 with five pardons.
