“Mother” is a title millions of women across America are proud to hold. So why is the Biden Administration trying to strike it from our language and replace it with “birthing people”? It’s nothing more than another attempt to redefine a core American institution like motherhood by changing our language to appease the ‘woke’ left in the name of “acceptance” and “inclusion”. Congressman Smith questioned Biden’s OMB Director on these ridiculous and divisive terms.
Under Biden’s plans, Missouri employers would be taxed higher than those in communist China. Proposals like this put America LAST and will have devastating repercussions for workers and wages. As Republican Leader of the Budget Committee, Congressman Smith is at the forefront on stopping this legislation and bringing commonsense Missouri values and America First policies to the Budget Committee.
More people have illegally crossed our southern border than the entire population of Kansas City, Missouri since Joe Biden took office. Rep. Smith visited the border to see the crisis firsthand. There he witnessed illegal crossings, an unfinished border wall, and illegal immigrants from all over the world waiting to be released into America. Make no mistake, the world sees that our southern border is open and that the White House has no plans of ending this crisis anytime soon.
In recognition of his record defending the working class and conservative Missouri values, Congressman Smith received the award for Conservative Excellence by the American Conservative Union Foundation. His conservative vote score ranked as the top in the Missouri delegation and highlights Rep. Smith’s efforts to bring commonsense thinking to Washington.
Washington Democrats will do anything to push their radical agenda through, even if it means redefining what infrastructure is to meet their phony definition. To the working-class folks who have built America, infrastructure is roads, bridges, airports, dams, and broadband. In yet another attempt to deceive the American people Speaker Pelosi and the Washington Democrats are trying to expand this definition to pass a bill that has less than 6% going to roads and bridges and less than 2% to airports, waterways, locks, and dams. This $2.3 trillion boondoggle includes more blue state bailouts and aims at increasing Washington’s control over you and your everyday life while taking the power of decision out of your control and putting it into the hands of a DC bureaucrat.
Joe Biden has been all about prioritizing the wrong issues and putting America last. Instead of focusing on our southern border which has seen record numbers of illegal crossings, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris have turned their focus on restricting our second amendment rights. This radical administration has shown that they would rather strip us of our ability to defend ourselves and our families instead of focusing on the surge at our border that puts American lives in danger. Throughout President Trump’s time in office Congressman Smith worked to put America first by securing our border and protecting our second amendment right.
The Southern Border has become a turnstile under Joe Biden’s watch. With a 71% increase in illegal alien interactions since February the situation is not getting any better. Rep. Smith exposed Joe Biden for breaking the law by abandoning border wall construction and seeing 172,000 people attempting to illegally cross the border in March (more than the population of Springfield, Missouri). According to Rep. Smith, this not only endangers ICE officers but also poses a threat to national security when our border is left unchecked.
Joe Biden’s cries for unity clash with the heavily partisan government overreach his party has championed since he took office. Just as they did with the $1.9 trillion blue state bail-out package, the Democrats are considering cutting out Republicans and the voices of millions of working-class Americans by using reconciliation to pass their so-called “infrastructure” bill. In bypassing half of the legislature, they wish to avoid debate and transparency all to pass their radical bill that will exert greater Washington command over the lives and livelihoods of the American people.
Biden’s COVID Package is nothing more than a liberal slush fund designed to bail out his allies in blue states. This package was not about crushing the virus, only 9% of funds go towards direct payments to Americans, distributing vaccines, and getting shots in arms. Nor was it about providing immediate relief to the American people because half the money allocated will not be spent until after 2022. With over $1 trillion still unspent from the previous COVID packages, this was the wrong plan at the wrong time.
The Death Tax is a callous and greedy penalty on those grieving the loss of a family member, one that particularly targets farms that are transferred from generation to generation. Many cash-strapped farmers and ranchers are forced to liquidate equipment and other assets to fulfill the burden the federal government places upon them. Americans who work their whole lives to pass on benefits to their loved ones shouldn’t have to worry about big government swooping in to take what they can. To combat this greed, Rep. Smith introduced the Death Tax Repeal Act along with Senator John Thune and Rep. Sanford Bishop which would strike this unjust tax code from the law.
