Smith Accuses Obama Admin. of Giving China a Pass ...


The New Jersey congressman behind a landmark anti-human trafficking law is accusing the Obama administration of giving China a pass in its latest report on the global trafficking epidemic that has been likened to slavery. The State Department report cited nearly two dozen countries for failing to meet basic standards, nearly double the number in the 2010 report. The rating could subject any of them to U.S. sanctions. China, however, was not on the Tier 3 list of severe offenders. Instead, the country was kept for the seventh year in a row on a separate "watch list."The watch list is the ...

Chris Smith's African Abortion Adventure


Most members of Congress spent last week's recess back in their districts, talking to their constituents and getting a sense of what Americans want their elected officials to be doing back in Washington. But Rep. Chris Smith, a New Jersey Republican, had other plans: He spent part of the break on a taxpayer-funded trip to Kenya, where he slammed the country's new constitution for allowing abortions in cases when the health of the mother is at risk. Kenyan abortion restrictions go far beyond those in American law, and Kenya's new constitution, approved overwhelmingly last August, codifies a ...

Congressman Smith’s Statement on the Tax Bill
Congressman Smith’s statement on H.R. 1, the tax bill under consideration in the House this week: While I believe Americans are overtaxed and need relief, I must vote “no” this week on the tax bill, H.R. 1, because of its negative impact on New Jersey and my congressional district.    Almost half – 47% ‒ of the taxpayers in my district itemize, claiming an average of $31,981 in deductions. The elimination – even modification – of the state and local tax deduction (SALT) will significantly increase taxes for many. That’s unacceptable, and reason enough to oppose the legislation. Making matters worse are other provisions in the legislation that nullify or significantly scale back numerous well-crafted deductions including the medical deduction – utilized by 40,000 taxpayers in my district, largely the elderly and disabled, with an average deduction of $9,254 – as well as deductions for student loans, education, property damage, and mortgages, among ot

Leonard Lance (R) and Frank LoBiondo (R), was honored by the association at its Fall Membership Luncheon in Princeton, NJ for his support for affordable health care access for everyone, and in particular his vote to protect Medicaid during this last round of health care reform in Congress.

NJ Hospital Association – for your extraordinarily effective advocacy, timely dissemination of accurate and critic
Smith Speaks at Preview of Exhibit Commemorating Genocide Victims, Survivors
Congressman Chris Smith (R-NJ) spoke on Sunday at the preview and ribbon cutting of a new exhibit commemorating the victims and survivors of three different genocides, at the Center for Holocaust, Human Rights & Genocide Education (Chhange). The exhibit, “Journeys Beyond Genocide: The Human Experience,” is housed on the campus of Brookdale Community College in Lincroft, NJ. It is a dynamic exhibition featuring powerful testimonies of local Holocaust and genocide survivors, and showcases their archival items.  Over 100 people attended the VIP preview of the exhibit, which covers three previous genocides: the Holocaust, the Armenian Genocide, and the 1994 genocide against the Tutsi people in Rwanda. “The promise of the genocide convention remains unfulfilled,” said Smith, who in 2000 held the first-ever U.S. hearing on the Armenian Genocide of 1915, as part of an attempt to pass a Congressional resolution recognizing the atrocities committed against the Armenian
Smith’s End Tropical Diseases Act Marked Up in Committee, Will Move to House Floor for Vote
Congressman Chris Smith’s (R-NJ) bill, The End Neglected Tropical Diseases Act (H.R. 1415), was adopted by the House Foreign Affairs Committee on Wednesday morning, moving it one step closer to the House Floor for a vote. “H.R. 1415 deals with a group of seventeen parasitic, bacterial, and viral diseases which blind, disable, disfigure, and sometimes kill victims from among the more than one billion of the world’s poorest people,” Smith, chairman of the House global health subcommittee, stated on Tuesday. “These diseases trap the most marginalized communities in a cycle of poverty,” Smith said. “H.R. 1415 will support the control and elimination of NTDs [natural tropical diseases] in the U.S. and abroad.” The End Neglected Tropical Diseases Act would improve the U.S. response to NTDs like Ebola, rabies, leprosy, and other blinding and disabling diseases afflicting  over one billion of the poorest people in the world in the tropical regions like in sub-Sahar
