To stop the disastrous spending in Joe Biden’s reckless tax-and-spending package, Congressman Smith teamed up with Senator Lindsay Graham to expose what this agenda really costs. By uncovering the true cost of the BBB from the Congressional Budget Office, Smith and Graham played a key role in determining the harm this spending would cause. In addition to being the largest tax and spending bill in U.S. history, this irresponsible plan calls for five trillion dollars in new spending and adds three trillion to the deficit, not “zero dollars” as Joe Biden claimed. More taxes, spending, and control show that this administration wants to pile on the burden felt by working-class Americans who are already struggling to pay for the Biden inflation crisis.
This administration’s solution to the Biden energy crisis is laughable. Releasing what amounts to 3 days’ supply of oil from our strategic reserve to combat rising gas prices shows Joe Biden and the DC Democrats only wish to portray that he cares about giving Americans relief at the pump. President Trump’s policies led to energy independence and lower gas prices, while under the Green New Deal leadership the Democrats have the U.S. begging for oil from foreign countries and paying over a dollar more per gallon to fill up. Working class families across Missouri are struggling more than ever because of failed fuel policies and this administration couldn’t care less.
It’s no secret that DC Democrats must mislead the American people to get away with their socialist spending. That’s why they’re trying to discredit the Congressional Budget Office for telling the American people the truth about what their boondoggle is going to cost. Those same Democrats lauded the CBO as “the gold standard” under President Trump, but now that they’re trying to spend your tax dollars on a package that will cost close to $5 trillion and add $800 billion to our debt in just 5 years. So much for “zero cost.” As Republican Leader of the Budget Committee Congressman Smith will continue to shine a light on their wasteful spending and hypocrisy.
Hollywood elites like Meghan Markle only try to relate to the working class when it’s politically expedient for their agenda. The global elites and Hollywood liberals continue to push policies and support leaders that want to put American workers and families last. Her latest attempt to use her Royal title to influence American politics and policy comes with an ask to support the multi-trillion-dollar socialist spending bill that would only make things harder for American families trying to get ahead.
The liberal elite are only looking out for their own with this new spending package. Tax credits for electric vehicles, provisions for the children of millionaires to go to college for free, and $630 billion in Green New Deal funding show just how out of touch they are with the average American. As the leading voice for fiscal responsibility and the working class, Congressman Smith push back hard against DC Democrats efforts to reward elites for their political support.
America can’t ever turn our backs on our country’s most important ally, Israel. The radical Democrats who tried to block Iron Dome funding would hang them out to dry. Congressman Smith will continue to stand by Israel’s side.
Working-class families are hurt the most by the spending that Schumer and Pelosi have greenlit. Democrats’ priorities lie in more reckless spending, not fixing the multiple crises brought onto us by Joe Biden that the Democrat House and Senate have enabled. Congressman Smith is the leading voice for Republicans in the House in opposing this spending and having the backs of workers and job creators across America.
Renewed investment in rural broadband will help connect Southeast Missouri with the rest of the world. More access to broadband in our communities means better healthcare, education, and connectivity in areas that have been forgotten for too long by major networks. Congressman Smith has been a proud advocate for rural broadband and will continue to push for more internet access in southeast Missouri.
Standing at $29 trillion, our nation’s debt limit has been breached. The Democrats’ solution? Spend trillions and trillions more. Congress should be focused on shrinking government spending to end the inflationary taxes of today driving up prices on all things – and preventing the tax increases on American families of tomorrow. Instead, Washington Democrats are using this moment to spend more and seize more control.
The epitome of greedy, big government is adding more of a financial burden upon a grieving family. That’s why Rep. Smith is leading from the front in repealing the Death Tax. This tax impacts farming families the hardest making it extremely difficult to pass down land, equipment, and livestock to the next generation. To combat this callous government overreach, Congressman Smith co-sponsored the Death Tax Repeal Act to give families grieving the loss of a loved one relief from this unjust and immoral tax.
