Rep. Smith Fires Up Family Business Estate Tax Coalition.

As a seventh-generation Missourian, Congressman Smith understands rural America and the challenges they face. Rural America remains the breadbasket of our country and powers a large sect of our economy. Newer members of Congress who don’t have that same background may not understand these issues and how to best work with these communities. In the Ways and Means Committee, Congressman Smith worked to educate other members of Congress on farming and the tax burden farmers take on.

Missouri Congressman in D.C. Thinks Ending Tax Credit Would Pay for the Wall.

Unnecessary tax breaks continue to be shelled out to those who least need them. A $7,500 tax break given to those who buy electric cars won’t help many in southeast Missouri. Ending this excessive tax break that’s totaled around $5 billion would give us enough to pay for the Wall, benefitting all Americans rather than an exclusive few.

House passes Smith’s legislation to fight the opioid epidemic

Three Rivers Publishing, October 10, 2018

Too many Missouri families have felt the heartache of the loss of a loved one or friend to opioid addiction. The epidemic has ravaged homes and small communities and left children without parents and parents without their children. There are many things we need to do from furthering tightening the flow of goods across our borders to continuing to give law enforcement at the borders and in our towns the resources they need to fight this outbreak of opioid abuse in the U.S. One area I have focused on is where most patients are first exposed to opioids and the setting where they are often left with unused medications, surgery. I recently authored and had President Trump sign into law the Perioperative Reduction of Opioids (PRO) Act which will reduce patients exposure to unnecessary opioids post surgery, look at alternative forms of rehabilitation, and give patients and information they need on how to safely dispose of leftover opioids when they are no longer needed. We have a long way to go in this fight, but I am hopeful my legislation can be one small step towards getting our county on the winning side of this battle.

Congressman Jason Smith Holds Farmhall in Scott County

Show Me Times, August 7, 2018

As a 4th generation family farm owner myself, I love meeting with the farmers and families of southern Missouri. In August I visited 30 different agricultural operations in 30 different counties. We truly have the most diverse agricultural district found anywhere in the country. I was honored to be able to host several “Farm-hall” type meetings – open forums with Missouri farmers to hear about the latest challenges they are facing and ways I can help. It was during these visits a few years ago that I started a running list of the devastating and intrusive impact Washington regulations written by un-elected bureaucrats were having on Missouri farmers. Before he even took office, I shared that list with President Trump and his team. Together President Trump and I have now repealed over 1000 burdensome regulations with lifetime costs in excess of $33 billion. Our work is just getting started.

Smith introduces bill to permanently protect American Families

SEMO Times, May 23, 2018

The harder your work, the more the government wants to take…that just isn’t fair. Last Christmas, I worked with President Trump to help author and get signed into law the most significant tax relief for Missouri farmers, small business owners and families in the last 30 years. Key to that was lowering rates on your family, doubling the standard deduction and enhancing the per child tax credit. You should be rewarded for having a family, not punished. Unfortunately Senate Swamp rules, the filibuster, only allowed us to make those changes for the next several years, well now we need to make them permanent. This week I introduced legislation to do just that, to provide certainty to you and your family that the low rates you now know, wont be increased because of arcane Senate procedural rules.

The Salem News Online, March 27, 2018

Whether it is helping our nation’s service members or veterans navigate through often complex federal health, education or retirement benefits, or making sure they receive the recognition they rightfully deserve – assisting those who have so often put country before self and before their own family is one of my greatest responsibilities and honors as a member of the United States Congress. If you know of an active duty military member or a veteran who needs help with something, with anything, please have them get in touch with me. Dave Pace is a hero, and I am glad to have help play a small part in making sure the rest of the world knows that!

Rep. Jason Smith votes against budget deal that boosts federal spending, debt – SE Missourian, February 10, 2018

Last week, to my disappointment, the United States Congress put its approval on a new spending package which grows the overall size of government, guarantees trillion dollar deficits for the foreseeable future and provides for an unchecked increase to our nation’s debt ceiling. What’s worse, we did so without making an reforms, changes or improvements to how your government spends the resources you provide it with. I recently spoke with the Southeast Missourian about why I opposed this package and agree with President Trump’s comments about the new deal, there was just “much waste in order to get Dem votes..

Ozarks’ Congressman Jason Smith says he will donate shutdown paychecks to charity – KY3, January 20, 2018

When the government shutdown, it was because Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi and the rest of the obstructionist cared more about illegal immigrants rights than they cared about paying our men and women in the military. Missourians are owed better from their federal government. For each day of the shutdown, I will be donating my salary to a charity in Missouri.Simply put, I don’t believe your elected officials should be getting paid for failing to serve you.

President Trump wanted to hear from me because he cared about rural America. Joe Biden just thinks of us as flyover country. That's because he's focused on increasing Washington command and control over the lives and livelihoods of American families. ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Why aren't republicans INSISTING on the border wall being finished as part of this so called infrastructure bill??it's nothing but a pork filled Christmas list for dems, their cronies and donors

"tRump cared about rural America".... Only because y'all were dumb enough to vote for him!

Jason if you believe that line you really do need to go……”President Trump wanted to hear from me”…LOL

Trump only cares about votes fron Missouri NOT people!!!!!

Well, the unthinking Dems are out in force today!!!!

Another 110% true statement that the gentleman's making and if you'll notice you don't get a bunch of idiot Democrats arguing this point

Thanks to the Democrats in Congress and Pres. Biden, everyday families nation-wide are getting advanced child tax-credits in the form of CASH every month through December. Gee... I wonder why the GQP didn't think of that?!? πŸ™„ Jason voted against this program, btw...

The only reason Trump wanted to hear from Smith was because he was lonely for someone to kiss his rear.

Thats because middle america doesn't bow down too the overlords, its Why they Hate us...

Bullshit he won Missouri

Sad but true.

Stop the spending No new infrastructure bill

Brainwashed democrats!

Kamala thinks you don’t have Kinkos!

The former president doesn't give a damn about you. Hilarious

jayson`s head is so far up trumps ass that when trump goes to prison, and he will, it will be jaysons ass that gets screwed not trumps

Blah Blah Blah Jason Smith..you are horrible

More Republican Propaganda from Putin's Puppets trump and the Republican Party!!!!

Only thing trump is worried about now is going to prison......he never cared about actual American people, unless it benefited himself FIRST. Now Jason Smith thinks trump can benefit him.......good luck sucker.🍭

Prosecutors in St. Louis are more focused on criminalizing those who ignore politically-motivated mask mandates than they are on locking up murderers. It’s completely unacceptable. ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Murders should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Anyone that disagrees probably has never been robbed at gun point or beat down to give up their stuff. If either of those happened they'd be crying where are the police why aren't the prosecutors gonna prosecute

COVID-19 is going wild. How did they stop the plage over in Europe about the 16th century. Now we lie on medicine and don't know what's in it or who made it and how it was tested. People are not looking at it from a allergic point of view. I'm allergic to the flue shot so I have to look into this but didn't see how it was tested and how long so no I'm not taking or have someone tell me to take it. There best way to take it if God came down from heaven and says take the vacation and I haven't seen him say that yet. Only people that think there God. I'm literally standing by my Lord and savior Jesus Christ. He protect me from being kill in a motor vehicle accident (August 22 1990 and back at work December 13 1990) and I got up and walked he will do t now.

And Republicans don't care how many people die from COVID-19, just don't ask them to wear a mask or social distance!

This is stupid if they are really doing this then they have lost the Constitution some we're because this is not or should be a law.

St. Louis prosecutors office is a joke. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜€. I would love for George Sorry Ass to give me some of that money.πŸ€”πŸ˜³πŸ˜Š

Oh, horse hockey.

Democrats are a cancer.....

Jason Smith is more interested in making brownie points with the defeated Trump than he is in saving lives in Missouri.

There's a lot of this going on in Washington County Missouri also not the mask mandate but murders walking Scott free

Next they’ll be mandating we wear blindfolds so we can’t see what’s really going on!

Inflation is getting really bad No new spending No new infrastructure

Amen

Nope.

Agree with you Jason Smith

Amen

St Louis is just the opposite of how a society should operate. This is the most crime ridden disgusting armpit in the nation. Nothing going on in St Louis makes any kind of good sense.

Not your district, but we all knew you couldn’t go a single day without bellyaching something trivial.

Take ALL the criminal element, and those who oppose the honoring of our Flag, and put them on the front line, in place of our Honest soldiers, and let THEM fight for their lives!!!!

Yes the mayor of St Louis and the mayor of Kansas City or both idiots and ought to be locked up because they're that stupid!

Yep they have their own personal bodyguard to protect them they don't give a damn about anyone else

Jason your a dumb ass moron and you lie more than traitor Trump, why don’t you just stfu .

Soros backed prosecutors

Soros thugs.

Wow....insane
