Congressman Jason Smith

Representing the 8th District of Missouri
  • Defund Planned Parenthood

    I recently cosponsored two bills to block all federal funding for Planned Parenthood and other abortion providers. The action comes after disturbing videos were made public showing Planned Parenthood executives discussing selling body parts of unborn babies, potentially in violation of federal law.
  • Honoring Our Veterans

    One of the best parts of my job is being able to honor the brave men and women who have served our country. Recently I presented Vietnam Veteran Frank Grosspietsch of Salem with the Purple Heart, a medal given to members of the military wounded or killed in service.
  • Bringing Congress to the Classroom with Video Chat

    I connected with Central High School students from his office in Washington, D.C. by hosting a live video chat and answering dozens of questions. As one of the youngest members of Congress, Representative Smith has embraced new technology to stay connected with constituents when he is in Washington, D.C.
  • Leading Full Repeal of Obamacare

    Many families have contacted my offices to share their stories, and I am committed to making those voices heard. I shared one of the letters on the House floor that described how harmful Obamacare has been for families in southeast and southern Missouri.
  • Fighting the President’s Power Grab

    Article I of the Constitution says Congress will change the laws, not the president. Watch my remarks on the House floor about President Obama's unconstitutional executive action on immigration.

By now, you have probably seen the disturbing undercover videos that show Planned Parenthood executives discussing how they sell body parts of unborn babies.
