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.

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

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?!? 🙄 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!

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

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. 😂😂😂😂😀. I would love for George Sorry Ass to give me some of that money.🤔😳😊

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
