Toomey offers proposal to balance the budget, with support from Rubio, DeMint, and others

A proposal by Senator Pat Toomey, supported by Senators Jim DeMint, Mike Lee, Marco Rubio, Ron Johnson, David Vitter, Tom Coburn, Richard Burr, and James Risch is set to balance the budget in 10 years.

It would reduce government spending to 18.5% of the nation’s GDP by 2012, and assumes economic growth with a surplus by 2021, and does not raise taxes.

However, unlike Rep. Paul Ryan’s proposal, it does not reform major entitlements.

Senator DeMint commented on Toomey’s proposal:

“We felt as a group it was important for us to show, as senators, it was possible to balance the budget within 10 years,” said DeMint. “They want to see the political will that we can balance our budget.”

Rubio came out in defense of Toomey’s proposal daring Democrats to come out with a proposal instead of talking points.

“I hope when they email you their talking points they also email you their budget proposal…I believe these proposals should be met by counterproposals.”

Here is Rubio promoting Toomey’s plan and why it’s necessary.

Tips For Choosing the Best Weight Loss Supplements

Because they can be expensive, you need to make sure the weight loss supplements you buy really do work. Moreover, any supplement you take needs to be safe and not pose any serious risk to your health. Regardless of the nature of the product (e.g., all natural weight loss supplement or a weight loss pill), you need to be aware of the side effects that could result from its use. It’s important that you pick the weight loss supplements that are going to work for you.

While this is all relevant to your discovery, a few items about Garcinia Cambogia carry more weight than others.

But that can vary a bit, and it really just will depend on how you want to use the information. Of course there is quite a lot more to be learned. The last half of the article will offer you more solid info about this. We believe you will find them highly relevant to your overall goals, plus there is even more. One weight loss supplement that is found in animal products (e.g., milk and beef) is CLA or conjugated linoleic acid. CLA is a fatty acid. Not only does CLA seem to help with weight loss, it also seems to help with cholesterol levels.

CLA supplements are currently available. You can either buy CLA on its own, or as part of a formula that contains other items useful for weight loss. CLA may not be something that is safe for everyone mainly because it seems to show that it will interfere with the levels of blood glucose. Don’t put your health at risk. Talk to your doctor first and find out if CLA is safe for you to take, especially if your doctor has you on medication for diabetes or any other condition. Recently, many people have discovered chia to be an effective weight loss supplement. You can buy chia seeds, oil and capsules in many natural foods stores or online. It’s also been found that chia may be effective in preventing diabetes and hypertension. Chia is regarded as an energy enhancing food, so if you work out a lot, consider adding some chia in the power shakes you drink before and after your workout. Chia also is an excellent source of Omega-3 fatty acids. Most people can take chia safely since it’s a natural food. However, if you’re on medication for any sort of condition, talk to your doctor before you use chia as a weight loss supplement.

A very popular weight loss supplement is acai berry. Who hasn’t heard of this wonder fruit? Acai berry also has its share of controversies. Many people claim that it doesn’t really help with weight loss. Because acai has been the subject of so much hype, it’s become incredibly hard to distinguish the facts from the myths. There’s no doubt that acai is extremely nutritious and has numerous antioxidants. The best way you can get the most from acai as a weight loss supplement is if you work out regularly and follow a healthy diet. Many people tout acai as a miracle weight loss supplement, but the simple truth is that it’s not. The truth is that there isn’t any single supplement that will make you lose weight by itself unless you make a serious lifestyle change. The weight loss supplements we have just discussed are just some of many supplements available on the market today. It pays to do some research on the weight loss supplements you’re thinking of taking. Moreover, you shouldn’t expect any weight loss supplement to get the job done for you. However, if you change your eating habit and make a healthier lifestyle switch, the right supplement can help lose weight.

Sen. Rand Paul defends right-to-work states

Senator Rand Paul came to the defense of South Carolina and Governor Nikki Haley on challenging the president to answer about NLRB accusation against Boeing.

The NLRB accuses Boeing of retaliating against unionized workers in Washington state by building a production plant for its new Dreamliner plane in the right-to-work state of South Carolina.

Paul even asks if this is all politically motivated against states that are right-to-work and vote mostly Republican.

Transcript from The Hill:

“I have a question for the president. Mr. President, do you have an enemies list? Is this decision based on the fact that South Carolina appears to be a Republican state, has two Republican senators? Is this decision based on the fact that South Carolina is a right-to-work state? Are they on your enemies list?” Paul said…

“Will you now punish contractors who have given money to Republican candidates?” Paul asked.

Paul rattled off several other states, including Kentucky, Alabama and Texas, that he said could fall under the administration’s cross-hairs for voting Republican in the last election.

“Are we going to use the whole power and bully nature of government to say that business cannot be located in a state that might happen to vote Republican?” Paul said. “I find this appalling and I respectfully ask the president to immediately rescind this assault on business.”

This clip from Fox News includes Senator Paul and Senator Jim DeMint’s comments, and analysis from Dana Perino.
