Many thanks, Donald J. Trump!

Over the last four years, President Trump and I have worked together to lower middle class taxes and lift regulatory burdens off of farmers, ranchers, and small businesses. We’ve supported Missouri families, the unborn, law enforcement, and...

Mayor Lightfoot in Chicago is insulting the police union president and removing Christopher Columbus statues in the dead of night, saying they’re only “temporarily removed” “until further notice.” Right. I’m sure.

She’s talking about “a formal process to assess each of the...

Since my days in the Missouri General Assembly, I've always fought to protect your rights to protect your family and property. That hasn't stopped. What the McCloskeys are going through is absolutely unfair and unjust. Given the egregious overreach and misconduct by Prosecutor Gardner, I've...

We’re going on 5 months of talking heads & far Left leaders telling us we can’t go to church, & if you dare make church a priority, you better have a mask on be social distancing, but if you’re at a “mostly peaceful” riot (HA), anything is fair game. How does that make any sense?

Outrageous and wildly unprofessional of Craig Melvin. But also the perfect example of the game the MSM and far Left elites are playing.

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.

Smith Speaks on Need for Tighter Boarder Security.

The need for a more secure border is more pressing than ever. Border agents are overwhelmed and frequently draw the ire of the left. Their brave service was highlighted recently when a record 254 pounds of fentanyl was recovered in a drug bust in Arizona. Listen to Congressman Smith speak on it here.

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.

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.
