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.

The Left’s Presidental front runner accusing those who support Israel of bigotry is comical. You want a radical candidate who praises socialist countries like Cuba and bashes our allies in democracy and world stability, here he is. https://t.co/s9x0m4zpxF

Just want to remind everyone how unrealistic, uniformed, & impractical the Green New Deal is. Missouri alone would lose 117,500 jobs, & each month, each family would owe the government $330 more. That’s almost $4,000 more a year. That’s not going to fly.

There’s no denying that we’re better off now than we were four years ago. Grateful for the leadership of President Trump! #MAGA #Trump2020 https://t.co/qd6ouqGnKo
