Our tax code is a mess, and that’s putting it lightly. Multiple brackets. High rates. Special interest breaks everywhere. Rules and regulations that are too complicated to understand. It costs more and more each year just to do your taxes, let alone pay them.
It is an honor to serve the thirty counties which make up the 8th Congressional District in southeast and south central Missouri. The best part of my job is getting to spend time with the hard-working families, farmers and business owners who make our district the greatest place to live in the world.
Across southeast and south central Missouri, I have met some of the hardest working people found anywhere in America. Whether they are farmers, manufacturers or small business owners, they all have one thing in common – they want to do their jobs free of government overreach and interference, and provide their products, services and goods to others in Missouri and around the world.

Congressman Smith congratulates the opening of Your Community Health Center in Rolla.
On January 24th, Congressman Smith shared the story of Doug; a hardworking 61 year old cabinetmaker from southeast Missouri who has been without health care coverage for 2 years. He cannot afford to pay the higher premiums under Obamacare while he supports his family. His health insurance premiums would cost him roughly $900 per month, more than he pays for rent.
Congressman Smith held a discussion with President Trump and Vice President Pence about how they are doing more in their first week in the White House to improve the lives of Missourians than the last President did in eight years.
