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.

Smith assists Vietnam veteran to get Army to recognize rightfully-earned medals

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.

Smith meets with Vice President on tax reform; Smith will tour southern Missouri this week (AUDIO) – Missourinet, October 16, 2017

Our federal tax code is a mess. Deductions, loopholes, credits, special interest exemptions and bailouts which benefit few, but cost us all. I believe you deserve to keep more of your hard earned money, not the government.

I am fighting for a fairer, flatter and simpler tax code which would allow 95% of Americans to file their taxes on one simple sheet of paper, giving them more money and time to spend with their family, friends and loved ones. Our tax code hurts American businesses, American workers and our farmers. By reducing our tax rates and making our code less burdensome, we can give millions of American families the pay increase they deserve.

U.S. Rep. Jason Smith backs Trump’s health-care changes – Southeast Missourian, October 15, 2017

Earlier this year in the U.S. House of Representatives I helped usher through a repeal and replacement of the disastrous Obamacare healthcare law. That law has led to higher out of pocket expenses for Americans, less choice, and a government rationing of healthcare services.

Almost all of the counties in south central and southeast Missouri have only one choice for coverage under the Obamacare exchanges and some may soon have none. Where is the choice? Where is the competition? All the healthcare law has done is put a government bureaucrat between you and your family’s healthcare decisions. Unfortunately the repeal efforts have stalled in the United States Senate. Recently, the President announced his Administration would end the illegal practice of the Obama Administration which was making unauthorized and unappropriated payments to health insurance providers to get them to stay in the Obamacare exchanges. Congress never approved this money and it was simply being used to bailout insurance providers who are losing money in a failed government takeover of healthcare. I support the President’s actions as well as his work to support legislation I helped co-author to allow small businesses to band together to buy insurance across state lines.

Jason Smith stops federal funds for sanctuary cities – Three Rivers Publishing, September 10, 2017

Missourians’ tax dollars should not be going to support liberal policies of coastal cities. Sanctuary cities violate U.S. law and provide a safe harbor and refuge for those illegal immigrants who have ignored and are hiding from our legal system.

Recently I was able to author and pass a proposal in the U.S. House of Representatives supporting the call to action from our President and banning the largest swath of federal support dollars allocated around the country, those for infrastructure investments to Sanctuary Cities. If a municipality can’t honor the laws of the United States of America, then they should no longer receive any support from the federal government.

Smith leads effort to overturn ammunition and tackle ban – The Salem News Online, February 9, 2017

One of the Obama Administrations last directives before leaving office was to issue new rules and regulations banning the use of lead tackle and ammunition on federal lands. I am an ardent defender of your second amendment rights and believe that those who hunt, camp and enjoy our federal lands are the best stewards of that land.

Outraged by this midnight attack on those rights by an outgoing Administration, I authored and led over 50 Members of Congress in an effort and letter to call on the Trump Administration to immediately overturn this directive when taking office. I am pleased to report that one of the first actions taken by Interior Secretary Zinke was to honor this request and on day one of him taking over as Secretary order the department to no longer uphold this directive.

Go to the jail jail now

He shouting out another lie .

The American and the world know they Rigged the Election. why not Correct? Put President Donald Trump in the White House So he can Fix the Mess we are in right Now Biden in a Nursing Home.

I certainly agree with you

Absolutely

Check out TIME for the Biden group!!

He's not a president. He's a puppet.

This guy along with hunter are both brain dead we need Trump back to take control before we lose our country

He thinks he's god! Won't he be surprised when he faces the real God and gets thrown into hell for eternity!!

Genuine lunatic!!!

Obama is Biden’s Alter Ego and is calling the shots.

The one that need to do it is as crazy as he is..Which doesn't make the country any better, infect they make it worse..

Looks demonic

Absolutelyagree

LIES . LIES. LIES. HE IS DESTROYING OUR COUNTRY MORE AND MORE EACH DAY. WAKE UP AMERICA!

We are a Republic, not a Democracy. Democracy is a threat to itself. Majority rule can not work. Everyone needs representation, with a Democracy the minority has absolutely no say in anything.

First things first. We need to win the house and senate first. Then form the strategy to get rid of this pathetic puppet dictator.

He reminds me — his desperate vilification of those who dare to oppose him, his disconnect from reality, his lack of respect for the sanctity of life, etc. — of an infamous German tyrant & murderer.

This had to be a double. Because the real Joe Biden would’ve have stuck his foot in his mouth in the first 15 seconds and sound like a babbling idiot.

But he is NOT the president since they rigged the election and committed fraud.

Study old film of Hitler Biden has the same crazy look in his face , clenched fist and big lie .

Biden just wants to eliminate half of the country at the snap of his fingers

Eat up with stupid!!!!!

With your strong unifying (?) language, Gauleiter, you antagonize to rile up your base base again devoid of any constructive results to campaign on or any proposals for ways to improve. “Power crazed” is climbing the political ladder for your entire adult life career with ambitious intentions = Smith MO. Hate and anger are your only offers? Not buying.

Liar and criminal yelling at his bosses. Who voted for that no good?

Joe Biden has turned the FBI against the American people. This President has labeled his political rivals as threats to democracy and is not afraid to abuse the power of his office.

As the Inflation Crisis continues, Democrats are passing more spending, higher taxes, and more debt. As the Republican Leader of the Budget Committee, I am fighting to end this nonsense. Joe Biden and the Democrats are not working to help the working class but rather are working to destroy it. ... See MoreSee Less

Don't be fooled, Jason Smith ain't doing nothing....just like always. 🀣🀣🀣

It’s not a secret their goals are to take from the poor and middle income citizens to give more to the rich. Republicans cannot give up they must show up to vote. Do not let this suffering of inflation make you feel like your vote does not count. Do your part. Do not give up or let these hard times rule your emotions toward depression Stay steadfast. Do not argue with those who may be brainwashed by the radical left. Lead by respecting life and our liberties.

But some politicians are getting rich. Insider trading?

Please do something for the working class that have their Social Security reduced or eliminated. Support HR82 Social Security Fairness Act and repeal WEP and GPO

Well they are demo crats. Demo is a slang term for dismantling or destroying. The Greek root word crat means “rule,” So they rule by destruction

Of course they are - that’s the plan!

Thank u for trying. I pray u will get support.

Read your new mailer. Math manipulation and outright lies. Gotta love Christian Conservatism. What a con!

Jason Smith isn't going to do anything but kiss ass an line his pockets

They are trying to do something, right or wrong, they don't want to go backwards 50 years,like the Republicans, voting rights & Roe

They just go around you republicans and you guys sit back whining and crying rather than banning together (as they do) and taking a stand against this bull shavitz, Quit being spineless you sissies...

This doing away with social security thing comes up every election THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN!! Touching SS would be political suicide for any candidate so consider it fear tactics.

Are you ready for the new R platform: get Mexico to pay for the falling down boondoggle wall πŸ˜‚πŸ€£; lower taxes — for the wealthy, greedy corporations hoping for “trickle down” (which has never trickled down); reduce healthcare coverage, especially in rural areas and particularly to stop πŸ›‘ coverage for contraceptives 😠; ban books πŸ“š (free speech) while undermining public education, particularly rural transportation 🚌, in favor of private schools that most regular citizens can’t afford even with voucher handouts; pardons for criminals who believe themselves above the law; strengthen authoritarian legislative bodies that disregard the majority and popular vote initiatives in favor of installing their own self-serving agenda. Are you ready? Or, drain the swampy DC insider Smith MO and get to work for the true benefit and strength of the people. NO more Party over people politicians — No Smith MO.

Jason the Screwup Republican Leader of the Budget Committee..... I hear there are about 67 Million Women that would like to talk to you about getting their rights back.....Seems they all want to vote BLUE!!

It would be good if you could provide some actual details and facts supporting your accusations. But I expect that would take too much time, attention and intelligence. Besides, the information and facts would not support your claims (lies). Quite the contrary. Or, maybe even some clear plans besides saying “I’m fighting”. πŸ™„ Better to continue spewing political platitudes to feed the hateful attacks and divert attention from your failed 9 year career as a self-serving DC political insider. Let’s get to work for everyday people in CD8. Start by term limits for Smith MO. November 8.

That's the God honest truth.

Yep

True

Insulin $35 My medications , maximum $2000. Per year. The only tax increase is on corporations and very wealthy . Stock market is soaring. Full employment Gas prices way down Jobs being created rebuilding America. Protecting the rights of all women to choice for themselves Can you hear me now?

Jason Smith voted NO on the bill that would have protect our democracy. Vote him out! Vote Democrat!

Jason Smith thinks this means voting against veterans, against small government, against human rights, and against anyone getting a tax break or financial assistance who isn't in the top 1%. He's lying to you and his voting record proves it. I'd say the bills He's introduced pro be it to, but he doesn't create any legislation. He just whines about it, if the real legislators have a "D" next to their name.

THEN CAME NOVEMBER

Bullshit

Jason Smith, Mr. Gloom and Doom himself when he knows damn good and well that things are improving and that republicans have little to nothing to do with that. Anything that will help the average citizen, they vote against and then take credit for the good done that they voted against. It's crazy that Jason Smith is even considered an option again.
