Jason Smith is Excited to See Missourians Step Up.

During the COVID-19 crisis, Rep. Smith reached out to doctors and medical professionals around rural Missouri to hear their ideas about what he could do to help these front line workers. One of the biggest burdens they mentioned was Medicare’s rules preventing them from doing over the phone consultations with at-risk individuals and seniors, resulting in many of them having to travel far distances to go to their office or hospitals.

Immediately Smith outlined this problem for the Administration and less than 10 days later, President Trump and his team updated the rules governing Medicare to allow doctors in rural areas to conduct phone only consults with patients so that not only could the patients stay safe, but so too could the healthcare professionals acting as our first line of defense during this crisis.

Smith is important ally for Trump White House

President Donald Trump may have no better friend in Congress than U.S. Rep. Jason Smith. The 39-year-old congressman who represents Missouri’s Eighth District plays a key legislative role, serving on the seven-member House GOP leadership team as Republican Conference secretary. A member of the Ways and Means Committee, one of the more powerful congressional assignments, Smith said tax reform and trade have been priorities.

Congressman Jason Smith: ‘Absolutely no’ on impeachment

The impeachment circus run by the Left is an attempt to undo our electoral process and the will of 63 million Americans who voted for President Trump.  The evidence presented in the House proceedings was a string of assumptions which lacked zero evidence and no merit. This entire coordinated effort to remove President Trump before he even took office is damaging to the integrity of our Republic and is a blatant abuse of power by Speaker Pelosi. Congressman Smith served as a co-chair of Trump for Missouri in 2016 and is again in 2020. He stood with the President in fighting back against this baseless political impeachment effort and continues to expose it for what it is – a partisan attempt to remove a President the Left simply doesn’t like.

Smith asks that presidential candidates recuse themselves

Congressman Smith has been an outspoken opponent of the Left’s impeachment circus. Not only has the process been a complete sham and one sided attack on the President, but it has been loaded with bias and lacks any effort for due process for our President. Smith recently led two dozen Member of the House of Representatives in calling on any U.S. Senator running for President to recuse themselves in the Senate’s impeachment trial. Their participation in the trial would be egregious because of a clear conflict of interest and there is no way they could uphold their constitutional obligation of impartiality.

House Republicans look to block 2020 Democrats from Senate impeachment trial

U.S. Senators also running for President themselves would undoubtedly be prejudiced by their own political ambitions. The entire impeachment farce against President Trump has been fueled by their blind hatred of him, not because any actual crime was committed. The lack of due process and rights for the President has proven what a sham effort this has been. To begin to restore some semblance of fairness, Congressman Smith authored a resolution requiring Senators running against President Trump to recuse themselves from an impeachment trial, it isn’t right or fair they should get to vote to impeach their political opponent.

Rep. Jason Smith: House in ‘Chaos’ as Democrats Focus on Impeachment.

The impeachment of our president is nothing more than the left trying to undo the 2016 election. In basing their case for impeachment on hearsay rather than the high crimes and misdemeanors that our founding fathers intended impeachment proceedings for, Adam Schiff, Speaker Nancy Pelosi, and their Socialist followers in the U.S. Congress are trying to undermine the election and wasting valuable time that Congress could be using to get important things done for our country. During Congressman Smith’s time in office, he’s never seen such a circus nor witnessed such unproductive and unfounded chaos.

‘He’s a Phony, He’s a Fake, and He’s a Liar’: Congressional Colleague Sounds Off on Adam Schiff.

The left, led by Adam Schiff, understands they cannot beat President Trump at the ballot box. Instead, the Democrats would rather waste time with a sham impeachment hearing rather than passing a budget or getting anything else substantive done. This administration has done great things for our economy, protected our domestic and foreign interests, and renewed investment in rural America. But the left has held a vote to impeach him four times in three years all because they don’t believe somebody who they don’t like should hold our highest office. Adam Schiff is undercutting the vote of the American people and stalling our government over petty partisan politics.

Mo. Lawmaker Proposes Bill to Help Working College Students.

Students today are graduating with more student loan debt than ever before. As someone still paying off their student loans, Rep. Smith knows this challenge personally. He recently introduced legislation to more than double the financial assistance working students can receive from their employers without encumbering additional taxes. This will allow more students to receive more assistance and ultimately help lessen what they owe upon graduation.

Missouri Congressman Knocks Nike, Former NFL Player for Controversial Decision on Patriotic Shoe.

In a move many have deemed senseless and unpatriotic, Nike has decided to cancel a line of shoes because it contained the image of the American flag. Although Nike claimed the shoe would offend and detract from the Fourth of July, this is simply another example of political sensitivity going too far.

Regardless of your politics, you should be rooting for the millions of workers, farmers, and businesses to get back and kickstart our economy. Dems fearing a bounce-back because it doesn't benefit them politically is out of touch & blinded by partisanship. https://www.politico.com/news/2020/05/26/2020-election-democrats-281470
