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.

Trump declares war on Medicare despite campaign promises otherwise

If you are one of the 53 million Americans enrolled in Medicare and especially

if you are a Medicare senior who voted for Donald Trump you need to visit his

transition website: www.greatagain.gov and read the text under the "Healthcare"

heading. You will see that Trump is calling for Medicare to be "modernized". I'm willing

to wager that Trump has done a deal with House Speaker Paul Ryan whereby Ryan

will get Trump's legislative program through Congress and Trump has agreed not to

veto Ryan's cherished plan to privatize Medicare by replacing it with a measly voucher

that seniors will use to purchase a high deductible plan from the Health Insurance

industry with no drug coverage and large out-of-pocket expenses. If you want to save

Medicare you need to write a letter to Donald Trump and tell him that if he allows

Ryan to do what I've described above, thus regneging his campaign promise to hold

Mediare and Social Security "sacrosanct", (Trump's word) he will be a one-term

president if you have anything to say about it. You can write President-Elect

Trump at: Trump Tower/725 5th Ave./New York, N.Y. 10022-2523. Again, tell Trump

that if he allows Ryan to change Medicare one iota he will be a one-term president and

that you expect him to honor his campaign promise to hold Medicare and Social

Security "sacrosanct".
