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.

They already know this won’t end in impeachment. They just want to distract people as much as possible moving into 2020. Impeachment is catnip to the Left. They’re using it to rile people up. #MAGA #Trump2020 https://t.co/bgrYzllLcs

We saw a pivot in the middle of Mueller Investigation, and we’re seeing same in this Impeachment Sham. What started off as a fabrication of “quid pro quo” has become a tall tale of “bribery.”

Trump: I didn’t pressure Zelensky.
Zelensky: Trump didn’t pressure me.
Schiff: IMPEACH.

Where’s the logic here? Oh wait. It wasn’t here from the start, and it’s certainly not here now.
