U.S. Rep. Jason Smith backs Trump’s health-care changes – Southeast Missourian, October 15, 2017

Earlier this year in the U.S. House of Representatives I helped usher through a repeal and replacement of the disastrous Obamacare healthcare law. That law has led to higher out of pocket expenses for Americans, less choice, and a government rationing of healthcare services.

Almost all of the counties in south central and southeast Missouri have only one choice for coverage under the Obamacare exchanges and some may soon have none. Where is the choice? Where is the competition? All the healthcare law has done is put a government bureaucrat between you and your family’s healthcare decisions. Unfortunately the repeal efforts have stalled in the United States Senate. Recently, the President announced his Administration would end the illegal practice of the Obama Administration which was making unauthorized and unappropriated payments to health insurance providers to get them to stay in the Obamacare exchanges. Congress never approved this money and it was simply being used to bailout insurance providers who are losing money in a failed government takeover of healthcare. I support the President’s actions as well as his work to support legislation I helped co-author to allow small businesses to band together to buy insurance across state lines.

Jason Smith

When you DEFUND the police, crime RISES. Americans just want SECURITY, and they're not getting it from far-left politicians who are more interested in liberal talking points than they are in PUBLIC SAFETY. ... See MoreSee Less

That didn't take a rocket scientist, you Defund the police, crime is going to go up.

Who has defined the police in Missouri?

What do you actually do Jason Smith ???

Amen

Who are these nitwits that want to defund the police..cities that have defunded the police or told them to stand down crime has skyrocketed..when I first heard a democrat say defund the police I thought it was a bad joke and it is..thank you Jason Smith for speaking the truth.

The police havent been defunded. They want to change what is and isnt funded, so it will be more sensible and effective. It will be a plus for both the public and the police. It will take a lot of crap off their shoulders. Repugnicans dont have the guts nor imagination to move forward. This guy is full of crap!

FEARMONGER MUCH!!!! WHAT A PATHETIC PATHOLOGICAL LIAR YOU ARE!!!
