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.
Watch Rep. Smith discuss Democrat’s disregard of the problems they are causing for American families.
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.

The Bernie Budget would do nothing more than burden working-class families with more taxes and allow the government greater control over their lives. DC Democrats plan on spending $68 trillion over the next 10 years that would add $17 trillion in new debt which is higher than any economy in the world except America’s. There is no plan to get our fiscal house in order, the socialist pet projects like amnesty for illegals, tax breaks and green subsidies for environmentalists, expanding government-controlled health care, and doubling the size of the IRS would mean we take in $1.6 trillion less than we spend each year.

The infrastructure package passed by the U.S. Senate is a gateway drug to trillions in more of Washington spending. While investing in infrastructure is important, it must be paid for and not serve as a vehicle to bring along trillions more in unrelated socialist spending. The truth is, Democrats are using the infrastructure bill to also usher through policies which pay off their political friends, allies, and donors, provide amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants, implement the Green New Deal, and put new tax increases on family farmers and the working class. Republicans should have stopped this measure in the Senate, which is why Congressman Smith will continue to be outspoken in opposition to this and more reckless spending by the DC Democrats.
Listen to Congressman Smith speak out against the reckless package.
Nancy Pelosi and the Democrats want to turn the bipartisan infrastructure package into a hostage negotiation. Instead of rebuilding our crumbling roads and bridges, she is demanding a $3 trillion package that includes amnesty for illegal immigrants, forcing Medicaid on all states, and radical Green New Deal policies. The people of Southern Missouri want physical infrastructure, not Nancy Pelosi’s socialist wish list.

Prosecutors in St. Louis are more focused on enforcing mask mandates on vaccinated people than putting murderers in jail. These delays in prosecution are failures in duty and these corrupt officials should be removed immediately.
Watch Congressman Smith speak about St. Louis Prosecutors letting murderers walk.
Many in southern Missouri work hard to pay their way through school. As somebody who’s still paying back their student loans, Congressman Smith knows firsthand the challenge of covering the astronomical costs of college. His bipartisan legislation, the Upward Mobility Enhancement Act, would make it easier for students who work their way through higher education to achieve their dreams.

Forcing birth control on any woman from a third party is wrong. Britney Spears’ ongoing conservatorship battle brought this horrific practice to light. To end this awful, forced procedure and protect the right of women to have a voice in whether to have contraception, Congressman Smith introduced the CIRCUS Act to ensure that what happened to Spears will never happen to anyone else.

Security threats like China and our southern Border being abused by the criminal cartels don’t seem to worry Joe Biden one bit. That’s why Joe Biden flatlined funding for the Department of Homeland Security and didn’t put one single dollar to securing our border in his budget. His priorities lie in taxing the American people, which is why he plans to hire 87,000 additional IRS agents to get every penny out of you. While Biden and his extreme regime of Socialists attempt to squeeze the American taxpayer dry, Congressman Smith is at ground zero for this fight in the Budget Committee, pushing back against their misplaced liberal wish list.

I’m incredibly grateful to the people of southern Missouri for giving me the privilege of continuing to fight for them in Washington. Serving as our voice in the United States Congress has – and always will be – my highest honor. As a 7th generation Missourian I take great pride in fighting to preserve the values, beliefs, and ways of life we all hold dear.
Americans rightfully expect Congress to come together and find solutions to reversing the sharpest rise in cost of living in 40 years, to help lower gas prices, and secure our border. I’m ready for the important work which lies ahead to restore our country’s standing, to enact policies which make our economy strong, to make our communities secure, to restore freedom as the central pillar of our country, and to make sure government is held accountable. ...

We the people want term limits
Time for Kevin McCarthy and McConnell to go. I don’t believe anything significant can be done as long as they are the leaders. The democrats and their policies are horrible for this country. Republicans need to quit playing defense and go on offense.
I hope you are ready to reach across the aisle. Obstructing legislation makes it impossible to get anything done. I also hope you have solutions and not finger pointing. The whining and pointing fingers is so degrading for you.
Can you please start pushing for term limits and start focusing on getting manufacturing back to where it was pre nafta in the 8th district?
Thank you…. I know how hard that job must be…
Congratulations!! We miss you!!
Thank you, Jason for all you have done and continue to do...from a 9th generation American from Southeast Missouri!
Make us proud, where we won't be sorry
You got our vote!
Glad your there now just return phone calls or e-mails
Thanks for all the work you have done.
Thank you for serving 🇺🇸
You got my vote
So how did a bill get passed on semi automatic guns in the house
We have been waiting for the last six years for you to work across the aisle....never happened plus you have tried to destroy the values, beliefs, and way of life we hold dear.
Congratulations… I see political gerrymandering worked out well for you AGAIN!!!! I pray you do better than you have in the past. Thank goodness Biden pass the infrastructure bill. Now you will have the money to fix our bridges and roads that you have not been able to fix in all the years you have represented us. ￼￼￼￼￼￼￼
We need new leadership. It is time for Kevin McCarthy and Mitch McConnell to step aside.
So Jason Smith, does this mean we will finally get NEW leadership???
Do you support term limits
Got to get the food prices down milk 6.22 a gallon is crazy

Voted. Red all the way.🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
I’m praying that the large turnout means, “We’ve had enough!!”
Voted red. Let us see some action to make American life's better, instead of working for party work for the American people
BLUE WAVE, ALL THE WAY!!!
Americans want term limits, securing the border, inflation and energy independence. How about working these in while we control House and senate.

YES!!! We were there at 630 this morning!!!
this didn't age well
Red tsunami. Interesting there was a blood moon lunar eclipse this morning it was a sign
The process used in the electoral college also needs to be applied to state levels. This way the bigger cities like St. Louis and Kansas City don't get to rule the roost in their states. Please pass this along to everyone you know. We need to email and call all of our representatives, congressmen, and senators. We need to corner them when we see them. We need to plaster this all over their social media outlets. Please get the word out.
Well, this post didn't age well 🤣🤣
Voted all red!!!
Best of luck today from the Dements ! 🇺🇸
We voted red
Voted for you, straight red

Missouri has been under Republican rule for 2 decades and the majority of rural MO voters vote against themselves time after time. It's maddening to watch. Jason Smith is not for the people of this state and I don't remember a time that he ever was.
He got my vote a long time ago
You have my vote!
support the FDA Modernization Act 2.0 (S.5002), to utilize modern advances in science and technology
Why don’t you answer emails? My veteran husband needs hearing aids! You and your staff are worthless when it comes to veteran care.
Lil Donny is a prick
Congrats on your landslide win.
Really, Traitor Donald Trump Jr..........LOL well you're two peas in a pod!!!!
Jason Smith has the support of the sycophantic son of a wannabe dictator who is still trying to dismantle our democracy! Maybe not something to brag about, Congressman Jason Smith

A radical NYC DA is inventing new charges against President Trump instead of prosecuting murderers in his city. Washington Democrats should end their obsession with President Trump and prosecute the criminals hurting our communities.
Appreciate your service my friend. Can’t wait to see what’s next!
Tomorrow will be my final day in service to @gop - it’s been the honor of a lifetime. Over the past 4 years I’m met people from all over the nation. From grassroots volunteers to the elected officials, we have many opinions but we love freedom, liberty and strength as a nation.
#MO08 go Re-elect one of President Trump’s strongest allies in Congress, @JasonSmithMO!
We need Jason as the Chairman of the Ways & Means Committee next year to help tackle Bidenflation!
