YES! He'll shut down the government just to stay in the spotlight.
NO! He wants the House GOP to take the blame for a shutdown.

This is sad that Sen. Cruz has health care paid by all of us would stop the uninsured from getting help. What a shame on him he does not have the backing of the GOP in the Senate

You must know that this is called GREED, not caring about the poor, and working people?...

cut all war spending and declare PEACE! shut down all the military bases around the world, we are not the policeman of the world...we have no right to tell other countries what to do with WMD, the US bombed millions in Japan, and hirosima for our tests...they are still suffering! and DRONES KILL WOMEN AND CHILDREN EVERDAY, INCLUDING THE INNOCENT people, all the poor countries we gave money (aid for peace? or food, or bases) using our tax dollars!

The Big Lie versus grieving families and a dying democracy

Thom plus logo It's showing up in the obituaries.

People in the throes of agony from losing someone close to them are writing things like, "Instead of flowers, donate to a Democrat," or "instead of flowers, tell everyone to vote against Trump and the GOP this fall." It's become a national trend.
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann channels the best of the American Founders with voice and pen. His deep attachment to a democratic civil society is just the medicine America needs."
Tom Hayden, author of The Long Sixties and director, Peace and Justice Resource Center.
From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"If you wonder why and when giant corporations got the power to reign supreme over us, here’s the story."
Jim Hightower, national radio commentator and author of Swim Against the Current
