Meet Jason Smith

As someone who grew up working on the farm, Jason used his high school FFA project to help pay his own way through college. Jason graduated with a double major in just three years. From there he attended law school, where still today he faces the same struggles that millions of Americans do in paying off student loan debt.

After school, Jason returned home to Dent County, he began running the family farm and operating a small business. It was during this time that he learned firsthand what it meant to balance a budget, live within your means, and the disciplined work ethic needed to operate a successful farm and business. This period also made Jason recognize the harm that the overbearing government was inflicting on his farm, his business, and Missourians. Wanting to undo the damage from a government which taxes, spends and regulates too much, Jason decided to run in a special election for the Missouri State House.

In 2005 Jason won election to the Missouri State House, representing the 150th district, including Dent, Crawford, Phelps & Reynolds County. Impressed by his work ethic, integrity and grasp of complex policy matters, his colleagues elected him as one of the youngest Majority Whips and then Speaker Pro Tem in Missouri State House history. His work in Jefferson City earned Jason a reputation as a guardian of rural values, a fighter for a smaller, more efficient government, and an outspoken advocate of fiscal conservatism.

Jason’s success in the Missouri Assembly propelled him to answer the call to run for the U.S. House of Representatives in early 2013. Through a lengthy 27-way primary process, Jason proved to be the conservatives’ choice to represent Missouri’s 8th congressional district. After less than a full term in Congress, Jason’s colleagues once again recognized his hard work, commitment to limiting the size of government, and dedication to understanding complex policy by awarding him with appointment to the House Ways & Means Committee – the oldest and most prestigious standing committee in Congress

As a Member of the Ways & Means Committee Jason has focused on simplifying the over 70,000-page tax code and reducing the burden the federal tax system places on small businesses, farmers, and families. He has helped author and pass policies which lower the tax liability for working students, repeal the unfair ‘death tax’, and reduce the federal tax load for farmers and small business owners wanting to invest in new equipment. Jason has also used his perch on the Committee to advance repeals of the individual and employer Obamacare tax mandates and also fight for rural poverty reform.

In late 2015, Jason’s colleagues in the U.S. House once again recognized his commitment to putting conservative values, principles and leadership first and elected Jason to serve on the Republican Steering Committee – a group of Republican conference leaders charged with selecting the Chairman of every U.S. House Committee.

In 2016, Jason was unanimously elected by the U.S. House of Representatives Republican Conference to serve as a Member of  U.S. House Leadership. He uses that elevated role to further advocate for rural America and the rights of farmers and families. There he was able to work closely with President Trump, cutting 24,000 pages of regulations for businesses and delivering tax relief to American workers while also reducing the size and scope of the federal government.

Throughout 2020, Jason served as co-chair for Trump for Missouri as he did in 2016. He led the charge for President Trump in the Show-Me State and campaigned for the President across key battleground states. Due to his commitment to cutting spending and lowering taxes for the working class, his colleagues elected him as the Ranking Member of the Budget Committee for the 117th Congress. In this role, Jason will focus on keeping Washington out of the pockets of hard-working Missourians, pushing back against the progressive wish list of higher taxes and wasteful spending, and defending the accomplishments of the Trump administration to put working-class American families first.

As a seventh-generation Missourian and a fourth-generation owner of the family farm, Jason will continue to champion the rights and values of farmers and rural Missourians in Congress. Jason has been endorsed by the Missouri Farm Bureau and National Rifle Association. For his voting record in Congress, Jason has also earned 100% ratings from the National Right to Life, the Christian Coalition of America, the National Federation of Independent Business, and the Faith & Freedom Coalition.

Jason attends Grace Community Church in Salem where he has volunteered as a Sunday school teacher for their church’s youth.

Replacing "mom" with "birthing persons" to be "inclusive"? Joe Biden and the woke liberal left are trying to turn America into crazy town. ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

To late for Biden to turn us into crazy town, that was done under the Trump Administration.


Just remember midterm elections and get out and vote Republican. That's the best thing we can do to bring sanity back to the government

Extremely asinine! Only very weak brainless followers go along with this stupidity! Refuse to use their words to discredit true females or anything else!

Give me a break. People are getting farther and farther out in left field every day. This has to be stopped. America is becoming the laughing stock of the world.

Washington should stop doing stupid things and start working on the problems of our country, first being getting rid of Biden and his Democrat cronies.

I’m sick of the Democrats shoveling this junk down our throats!!!!!

Only Fox News would promote Jason Smith's run for the is down right funny.

Degrading and insulting to me as a mother and all the mothers in the nation !!

I always be called mom how stupid and a waste of tax payer money to even talk such nonsense

Most people have used “birth parent” instead of saying mom for a long time. It’s more often used when kids are put up for adoption, but that doesn’t mean it’s wrong to be gender neutral. As a woman, if being called a birth parent bothers you, there is something wrong with you, not the term.

They are a bunch of evil weirdo’s!

🤯🤪I have heard it all now. Guess next year we will be celebrating "Birthing Persons Day" in lieu of Mother's Day.

I am against abortion but these people make a good argument for abortion.

So very sad we need our America back

If the government has that much of our tax dollars to waste over stupid crap then cut our taxes

This is crazy 😜 I’m sticking with mom what does the dad get to be called ??? Can’t call him dad and how about grandma and grandpa this is endless I’m sorry don’t waste our money call yourself whatever you want but you don’t need to spend US money on this

Excuse me that’s insulting I’m a mom and proud of it


For all of those crazy as hell ppl ( I think ) need to be put on their own island and let their new way of life begin and let the rest if us continue on the way we have for decades .

So glad his mother is not around to listen to this crap, she would probably want to whip his backside

You know, you here stuff like this and think this can’t possibly go anywhere but next thing you know it’s happening! What is going on! Where are the sane people that need to keep these insane things from happening???!!!

ONLY WOMEN can give birth...!! End of story..

How is that more inclusive. There are a lot of types of moms

President Trump brought the strongest economy in history with lower taxes and lower regulations. Under Joe Biden, it's the exact opposite. This country needs conservatives who know how to fight for the "America First" policies that strengthened working-class families and who don't abandon them when the going gets tough. ...

The dems and media spent four years lying about President Trump and the republicans didn't do anything to change that. Immigration reform was long over do . Raiding our retirement fund for God knows what. Making health care unaffordable to do many people and then taxing those same people for not being able to afford it. I think we all need to stop this political division and pay attention to who we elect.

Don't forget the huge increase in the national debt the Trump and the GOP brought to us, Jason Smith. Also do not forget how you tried to take away the health care of millions of Americans. There was no American First with was all how do I increase the profit of my companies.


Wouldn’t it be interesting if the left side held itself as accountable for indiscretions as they preached and practiced during the previous administration? Could also persuade the ‘investigative’ arm of mainstream media to perform their tasks without prejudice?

Biden is destroying our country. President Trump was the best President ever!

BULL‼‼ The ONLY people who benefited from trump were the billionaires and trump himself‼‼👎👎😠😠

Long live President BIDEN!! 💙

Trump INHERITED, one the best economy's, then gave the rich a tax break...promised an Infrastructure plan....and didn't. Not to mention, piled on Enormous debt......Biden's plan WILL CREATE thousands of jobs, allow people to get back to work and actually REBUILD AMERICA , which is in desperate need of repair which will be paid for over 10 or so years.......guess what need money to do that !!!!! Guess what folks, America desperately need this.....and this is what our tax dollars should be used for....and everyone should pay their FAIR share.......but apparently, the party of trump does not think so.........Biden, trying to Build back America......for ALL AMERICANS. trump never did or say that......never. Again, Jason Smith is full of usual.

Love the way you work the media... They know nothing.

Surprise, Surprise, NOT !

Biden went into office with one goal the very first day; Reverse all decisions made by President Trump during his term of office.

🤘🇺🇸🤘President Trump 🇺🇸🤘🇺🇸

Thank you for working, and standing for our freedoms.

Lots of Bull hockey being spread by you Jason. Biden has done a lot for Americans. Stock Market booming, jobs coming back, Covid under control and truth spoken not lies.

Trump knew what he was doing. Great man


Jason you should have brought up the new revelations about hydroxychloroquine and its effectiveness with COVID. Remember Neil proclaiming Trump could die taking that.

More Republican Propaganda from Putin's Puppets!!!!!!

Stop the spending!!!

So true !!

Jacob Turner

Bidoom and congress will and is being America's down fall.

Your opponent for the up coming election is a SLEASEBALL ! .Don't turn your back on him !


Trump did very little in terms of economic security for the USA. Jobs.

The Biden Administration took the time to set aside $80 billion to hire 87,000 IRS auditors to target working-class families. This should terrify every single American.

Help us fight back here:

I'm telling you if something isn't done about this CLOWN AND HIS CRONIES. YOU WILL NOT RECOGNIZE AMERICA AS IT ONCE WAS

The IRS needs to audit the known tax papers the rich people and leave the poor working people alone

Why don’t they go after known tax non payers like Al Sharpton and Warren Buffet, who has been contesting his taxes for several years now, and I am sure there are many others.

Really this is so wrong. Just get the government to pay their taxes. And make them pay double on all the behind the door money they have been collecting over the years.

Especially when he does what Obama did and targets only republicans. Such corruption

As slow as IRS workers are, it will take 87 years for them to do this job!!! As usual, Biden is barking up the wrong tree!!!

Maybe they need to work on processing taxes which of been filed. I have not received my tax refund from 2019 nor 2020! Both were filed on time and were completed by a certified accountant. I’m only told they are behind on processing because of Covid. 🤬

Get rid of the illegal immigrants and we won't need as much money. Probably half the money they claim is going to the immigrants is finding its way into their pockets.

We can't even hire people to work the jobs they left because of Covid !!!

It must be nice for them politicians to spend our money without our approval that money belongs to us the hard-working people the poor the homeless what are they thinking BS

Go after the people who don’t pay their taxes on their new cars. I am so sick of expired temp tags and they don’t have insurance. I know this is the state but I paid my taxes and my personal property taxes

Rich people pay little to no taxes. It falls on the average working family to pay the burden of taxes. Rather than hiring 87,000 people for the IRS he should be reducing 87,000 jobs in the federal government. Rich people can do all the cocaine they want and take all the illegal bribes and kick backs and are never prosecuted, the average guy goes to prison.

How about Al Sharpton just paying his owed taxes? Now you know how Biden et al is covering the massive hand outs!!

Yes we should target people like YOU Jason. Lord knows you probably pay less in taxes than your constituents…

Communist Why aren't they going after their own??? Wait they will jackals always do

What is wrong with paying your fair share? Go after the big shots that pay nothing on their $Billions of $

Is this the unemployment solution?? More people in government jobs?

Ronnie was 1000% correct..."We're one generation away from socialism!"

And yet, no investigation into Drug King Hunter nor Quid Pro Quo Useless Joe.

Sounds like they are going to start tax farming

Stand up against tyranny together. Individual we fall - together we stand

Jason Smith must be shaking in his boots that the auditors are coming after his tax returns as he is trying to scare the working class.......with his posts we do get to take in his new "bubba" look.

Should be auditors for congress and others in government.

How much has he spent now??

Why? If you are honest it won’t matter at all. Maybe they can collect taxes due from all the people cheating on their taxes.
