This $3.5 trillion spending bill is the largest spending bill and the largest tax bill in the entire history of our country, all at the expense of the working class. That is just simply wrong. ... See MoreSee Less

Comment on Facebook

Then DO SOMETHING. It isnt up to the voters. This is where the republicans MUST stick together. But there isnt much hope for that. Weve seen what happens when you all "stick together" we get screwed. I realize the dems have the majority, but republicans just Dont vote together.

The plan is to bankrupt the country and the middle class then the stinking Democrats will "come to the rescue". Will make the Great Depression look like tiddly winks.

The problem with the spending, it is TREMENDOUS, BUT The LARGE MANDATES FOR SOCIAL ENGINEERING, THAT though having end dates in the bill will probably be reaffirmed FOREVER, LIKE the Tax mandate on Obama Care, they will NEVER GO AWAY.

This money should be put into the Social Security fund to replace what our government has stolen from it.

WRONG???? It's an 😠 outrage!!! Where are the Republicans??? Why is this sh$t still happening

I HAVE STATED THIS BEFORE, BUT I WANT PEOPLE TO TRY TO COMPREHEND HOW MUCH A TRILLION DOLLARS IS. IF I WERE TO GIVE YOU A ONE DOLLAR BILL EVERY SECOND, IT WOULD TAKE OVER 37,000 YEARS TO GIVE YOU A TRILLION DOLLARS. WOW !..........LES

Dunno why you're so worried about it, people like Manchin and Sinema will buck the party line. Maybe post about the Texas border and immigrants again? 🤷

Will Rogers once said “ If you find yourself in a hole stop digging.” Seems to me common sense is now an uncommon virtue.....especially in Sodom On The Potomac.

This is nothing more then Jason Smith saying “Nope we the GOP are not going to help the working class people”.

Republican/conservatives in house and senate have to do something.

Republicans need to get as hard as the Democrats and stick together to fight this radical agenda.

Until you start talking election integrity, we know where you stand.

They want to destroy the middle class. We are sitting ducks..!!

Stop running your mouth and do something about it.

He’s not doing it, but his handlers are!

It cannot be passed!!!!

Jason Smith is a liar and an idiot! The working class people will not pay for this bill. Big business and the extremely rich will pay for it! Finally they will be asked to pay for what we need in this country!

When you bankrupt a nation, the nation no longer exists....ergo "the new world order". That's their agenda folks.

Yes it sure is

More of the Democrats’ destructive agenda.

Wow....

It will pass. No one to stop him. Corrupt government!!!!!

😡

Biden is not very smart.

Trying to break our Country.😡

The American people need leaders who do everything in their power to benefit the American people, not people who fail to do their job and attempt to push it under the rug. ... See MoreSee Less

You need to adjust your verbiage along with the associated mentality that causes you to use said improper verbiage. You, nor anyone else are elected to lead! Let me repeat. YOU ARE NOT ELECTED TO LEAD, YOU ARE ELECTED TO REPRESENT! Your broken mentality is sadly the same as every other 🐓🍭 in DC, and is the reason this once great country is now circling the drain. 😪

You have failed to do your job so Jason take your own advice and Resign........

Represent, not lead. So, just exactly what are you doing to truly represent your constituents, Jason Smith? Mostly what I see is blathering online and barbecues.

You mean like you, Jason! We have not seen you doing your job at all!

Keep fighting Jason. The majority of your district is behind you.

Smith makes a list of his failures and then accuses the other side of those failures.

Does that mean you'll vote for the budget reconciliation and bipartisan infrastructure bill then? Cuz that would certainly help a ton of American people.

Right they are supposed to work for us Need decrease the size too many politicians to get anything done Reduce by half help deficits too

So does that mean you'll resign and make room for one, Jason Smith ?

So? When is our elected politicians going to do that?

Kinda like the ol quid pro quo?

Springfield Illinois hospital employees need you

Looks like most of the politicians don’t care about Americans because they are not doing anything about all the nonsense crap that is going on in dc.

That is why you must Go!

Jason we have burnt your phones up yet you decide you're going to sit out representing your people and instead fundraise impeachment should have been on the table six months ago, and no excuses you're as guilty as Biden and the whole mess

When are the hostages going to come home? Seems they are forgotten already???

Let's all put our names in the write in candidate. I maybe looking at the independent party. There's a man who's name is Mann who's gathering signatures to start a new party. The party's name is The Peoples Party it's the Bernie Sanders supporters. What do you think about this Comrade?

So true!

That is why if Kevin McCarthy is either unwilling or unable to go 180 degrees in the EXACT opposite direction he should step aside & let someone else take the helm of leadership...the days of managing the decline are OVER!!! We the People are done being led down the road to communism only to be told that once the GOP has power in the majority they don't have enough of it to do anything...SHUT THIS GOVT DOWN NOW!!!

And that is why we got rid of your orange toadstool buddy, and will hopefully get rid of your useless ass soon!

Kind of like you and your man crush trump???

Wow!!! Another can't fix stupid

YESSSSS Finally I can say. I AGREE!!!

AOC is more like a Kardashian in Congress than a champion for working people. Just like the DC Dems, they talk about taxing the rich and helping the working class but then they turn around and pass a bill that is a giveaway to the rich and sticks the working class with higher prices and lower wages. ...

Comment on Facebook

Whether politicians are Democrat or Republican if things are not proposed or started things are going to change. People are done with the none progress on both sides. Someone may be downing other politicians but what are they doing on their side? In the real world side we see nothing being done.

It's like she's getting paid to be a cheerleader....only thing is she's cheering for corruption ,communism...and the destruction of this country

More of Jason Smith nothing speech.....

She is by far the dumbest person ever elected to anything

Another true idiot .what I would like to know is who voted for this simple minded person

Considering all the money you take from big business Jason Smith I wouldn't talk about other congressional representatives...

Stop with the lies. Republicans and Democrats are destroying this country the House and Senate are behind making America a 3rd world country. Republicans talk a lot of shit giving false hope someone is trying to stop the inevitable China is taking over power of the world. You know it. Nothing short of a revolution by the people is going to change what is happening.

Jerry Combs

AOC and her socialist scumbags are fraud

And you are a Champion for the working class? No, more like a prostitute to the elite!

AOC and the libtards are trying to destroy this country! They elected a dementia patient as president! Wake up and realize parties are for themselves, but at least the Republicans stand for the constitution and America!!

Sick of lame brain idiots like the Kardashians full of Botox and plastic surgery and an overbearing money making mother trying to make them relevant. Seriously... they know what is going on in the real world. I DON’T CARE what you think. I am sick of people that support a demented moron that likes kids sitting on his lap and can’t remember world leaders names.

She passes me off she tells use what we have to do but she goes and spends our like it's water running threw her fingers just like a demic(rat )

AOC is like the ice cream truck all the neighbors pay for those who are lacking.

Yes???

Truth

You talk about the rich like you didn’t come from a wealthy family, attend an Ivy League school. Jfc Jason. Do you think this isn’t public information? Your base is isn’t bright, but they can “do their research” by way of Google and find out that you (much like Trump) are a soft-handed boy of privilege.

Great analogy!

Get’em Jason!
