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.

Has Sen. Ryan not realized that his tours of blighted communities nor “data-driven” misconceptions substitute for understanding of the culture, affects or remedies required in multi-cultural enclaves? It is amusing that he does not consider serious examination of the “affluenzic” (paternalistic/authoritarian) attitudes with which he might be more familiar, and the moral bankruptcy of the conservative zeal for entitlement/benefit austerity in the face of record financial profit/recovery that is his preferred policy.



Today is April 30th. 10, 2014. The 113 Republican Majority Congress started January 3, 2013. It has now been in session for 490 days without passing a GOOD WAGE, JOBS BILL to help our economy.


Remember this House Speaker John Boehner quote, “Since the moment Americans entrusted us with the majority, our focus has been on job creation."

Here is the video when and where he said it May 26, 2011:


InterNet censorship attacks the basic democratic principal of having an informed electorate.

Reagan's Debt Legacy.

THOM, WHEN YOU SPEAK OF REAGAN'S ALMOST THREE TRILLION DEBT, DON'T FAIL TO MENTION THAT IN 2014 DOLLARS, THAT WOULD BE ABOUT 10 OR 12 TRILLION. In 1977, I bought a new Ford van for $4500. I retired from the Navy on less than $500 monthly. Today, that Van would cost $20,000 plus and my retirement is now $1700 a month. Also, the interest rate on that debt averaged about 7%. Keith

Without an Open and Free media Obama’s favorable approval ratings are bullshit.

You are simply polling uniformed People. People who haven’t heard of the bad because it isn’t getting the coverage it deserves. Essentially, polls are asking People if they like the President exclusive of the TPP, hosting a children of the 1% day at the White House, the true scam that is ObamaCare, etc. etc. ad nausea

Here's a possible guest for Thom's show

I know Thom has been banging the drum on climate change for decades now and finally we have a GOP senator up in arms over the delay of carbon emission reduction in his state.

Granted it comes right after the state is torn apart with tornadoes.

interestingly enough, it comes from FOX News, who hasn't been a big advocate on climate change and greenhouse gasses etc.
