Three (3) days after Christmas, on December 28, 2012, the opponent to Larry Crim U.S. Senate 2014, Lamar Alexander (R) of Tennessee, voted against Federal Disaster Aid for the victims of Hurricane Sandy and then, adding insult to injury, proposed slashing the Social Security benefits of his fellow Tennesseans and Americans.
Larry Crim U.S. Senate 2014 of Tennessee is committed to Federal Disaster Relief and Protecting your Social Security.
Larry Crim U.S. Senate 2014 has long defended against the efforts of career politicians like Alexander to cut, curtail, delay, defer, and deny the Social Security benefits for which Tennesseans and Americans have paid for over a lifetime.
Larry Crim United States Senate 2014 proposes maintaining or lowering tax rates for the typical Tennessean,
American and Small Business owner, while eliminating tax loopholes which currently permit many of the largest and
richest billionaire corporations to pay little or no taxes. This revision in corporate tax policy will result in new revenues, which are fair, and help us mitigate future "fiscal cliff" and budgetary crises in America.
Mr. Crim opposes reductions or delays in Social Security benefits because Americans are entitled to the federal government's promised timely return on their retirement investments which citizens are federally required to contribute over their lifetime. This fair Social Security policy maintains the "trust" of the American people in the retirement system and protects our nation's economic security because social security recipients are putting their social security income back into the economy by spending it for food, fuel, medicine, and other consumer goods and services. The example of fair treatment of social security contributors and beneficiaries by our federal government maintains the public's trust in the social security program. To reduce or delay these benefits is not only improper but unproductive economically.
Larry Crim U.S. Senate 2014 will protect YOUR Social Security - period. "Social Security was not enacted as an additional source of revenue for the government" said Larry Crim "but as a foundation for our citizen's retirement." Mr. Crim added: "Workers are required by law to contribute funds into social security for their future security. The payment of benefits back to citizen contributors is the sole purpose for which Social Security funds were designed to be utilized and for which they should be disbursed." Mr. Crim is for protecting Social Security Funds from being utilized for any other purpose than those for which they were designed - to help insure the financial security of Tennesseans.
