Jason Smith Endorsed by Missouri Farm Bureau

With 95,000 farms operating 27 million acres across Missouri, farming is more than our main economic driver, it’s a way of life that many of our communities are built around. Missouri has been feeding America for generations and Jason Smith is honored to fight for one of the most agriculturally diverse areas in our nation. As a 7th generation Missourian and family farm owner himself, Rep. Smith takes looking out for Missouri farmers personally. He’s proud to be endorsed by Missouri Farm Bureau because championing ag friendly policies that get Washington bureaucrats off of farmers’ backs and being a voice for those farmers and ranchers is something that benefits families across America.

House Rep. Jason Smith introduces act to amend Help America Vote Act

For the 2020 Presidential election, the left wants universal mail-in balloting to replace in-person voting. Large scale universal mail-in voting would leave our elections vulnerable to fraud, ballot harvesting, and illegitimate votes. To combat this, Congressman Smith introduced a policy that would require every state considering this to first verify that it was only mailing ballots to eligible and registered voters. A basic and straightforward idea that has been blocked for consideration by Speaker Pelosi.

Because of this, Congressman Smith proposed that the Health and Human Services Department should take all steps necessary to financially assist rural hospitals experiencing extreme debt, hardships, or the possibility of closure.

Missouri’s Sen. Hawley, Rep. Smith introduce “Military Right to Carry Act”

Armed service members should not have their 2nd amendment rights jeopardized simply because they decide to enlist for our country.

Armed service members should never face discrimination, unnecessary red tape, or any other impediment to their lawful right to carry.

Rural hospitals have been ground zero for COVID treatment and prevention across America. The same holds true here in Missouri where our local hospitals and local healthcare professionals are on the front lines every day fighting this pandemic.  

At the start of the outbreak, Congressman Smith spoke with 50 of the area’s leading doctors, healthcare workers, and hospital personnel to hear directly what they need to better serve southern Missourians. He shared those ideas directly with the President Trump Administration who enacted several of the recommendations to help make sure folks in Rural America are not overlooked in this time of need.

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.

Steve Scully’s Twitter was apparently “hacked” — likely story but I guess they’ll claim anything if it will cover their tracks.

Steve Scully was supposed to be the “unbiased” moderator for the Presidential debate. So what happens when he accidentally exposes his bias?? …. He claims he was hacked. Likely story, Scully. I bet you didn't intern for Biden either. https://t.co/jqqhuXtayp

The very first time Harris and Biden are together on the campaign trail — and no one shows up. There's no excitement or energy because their campaign offers no vision or hope. https://t.co/nzxuAJmCMK

So Sen. Maize Hirono wants to instill “ethics provisions” for the Supreme Court — ethics according to whose standards, Senator? Of course, you’d only be happy if they met your own personal criteria. https://t.co/4FsvW4H9Ir JasonSmithMO photo

Hollywood, ex-Royals, & coastal elitists don’t know the first thing about Missouri, the Midwest, or frankly, reality. They get on social media, chat with Fake News, & claim they know what’s best for you. But according to them - this meddling is okay.
