Equal Educational Funding Act (EEFA) of Larry CRIM U.S. Senate 2018 
Supported by Tennessee Public Servants & Educational Leaders

 
Larry Crim for U.S. Senate, an alumnus of The University of Tennessee and Tennessee State University (TSU), both land grant colleges, has proposed the “Equal Educational Funding Act(EEFA) requiring all states receiving federal education dollars to follow an “equal educational financial disbursement formula”.

State Rep. Barbara Cooper of Memphis, an educator and Tennessee State University alumnus, indicated her support for the purposes of the proposed federal legislation (EEFA) of Larry Crim for U.S. Senate -

    .....

  "The Equal Educational Funding Act (EEFA) proposed by Larry Crim for United States Senate builds on the history of creating and sustaining colleges for a diverse population in Tennessee and America"- State Rep. Barbara Cooper, Memphis, TN.


State Senator Reginald Tate of Memphis, Shelby County TN said:



"
The Equal Educational Funding Act proposed by Larry Crim for United States Senate will insure that the competition among public colleges for federal and state resources proceeds in every state, including Tennessee, in an equitable manner. The Act will also give state legislators the impetus to allocate the financial resources we receive from the federal government and our state matching dollars for  public colleges in a reasonable and fair way. I wholeheartedly endorse the fundamental principles of this proposed Act offered  by Mr. Crim." - - State Sen. Reginald Tate, Memphis.


Reverend Enoch Fuzz, pastor of Corinthian Missionary Baptist Church (Nashville) said:




Mr. Crim's proposed EEFA legislation will help achieve equality in funding public higher education which benefits all Tennesseans and Americans" -- Rev. Enoch Fuzz, Pastor and Community Leader

 Social Security Protection Act (SSPA): An Act to assure social security funds are held in trust for providing and timely delivering the social security benefits which Tennesseans and Americans have paid for all their life.  This Act would protect the social security trust fund of Americans from being borrowed against, assure that accrued benefits for which workers have paid are not cut or delayed but that their full Social Security benefits are timely delivered.  An Act to restore the social security benefit levels which have been cut by career politicians in Washington. An Act to establish a schedule of fixed minimum annual increases in Social Security benefit levels with flexible higher quarterly increases keeping up with inflation in necessary expenses such as food, clothes, gas, transportation and other primary consumer indexes.  An Act to assure that our government repays our national debt to Tennesseans and Americans who have paid for their Social Security all their lives.



---------------------------------------------------------                                                                            -----------------------------------------------------------



"The contributions Americans have made into social security is their money" says Larry Crim "which has resulted in benefits accrued to and for them over their lifetime. Social Security funds of Americans were not intended as an additional source of revenue for the government, but as a foundation for our citizen's retirement" said Larry Crim United States Senate 2018.


"Social Security was not meant to be an additional revenue for government, but a foundation for our citizen's retirement" said Larry Crim (D) U.S. Senate 2018 in opposing placing Social Security benefits on the chopping block in fiscal negotiations. "I reject cuts in social security as a way to fix the budget crisis" said Crim "because the social security retirement trust fund is made up of the contributions of our citizens for their own future retirement. It is only appropriate for our government to honor the role of holding the American people's money in trust for  that purpose alone." - Larry Crim U.S. Senate 2018...For ALL Tennesseans...
