Life of Julia or back to the USSR or rather Obama’s vision of state from cradle to grave!

Yesterday [May 3rd], the Obama campaign unveiled a new campaign for reelection story. Story so shocking that we decided to present it to our reader. It is a life story of Julia and how the Obama’s government took care of her literally from cradle to grave.

What is also so shocking in this story is that there is no mention of Julia’s parents, siblings and her family throughout of her life. There is no mention of her boyfriends nor husband. There is no mention of private life, her interests and friends.

We only know that she started to work as a web designer at age of 25 and at age of 42 started her own “web business.” We have no clue what happened to her job as a web designer nor to her web business.

Apparently, at age of 67 she retired and volunteers at … a community garden of all things.

This unmistakably communist vision of America could only be concocted by a combination of Marxist Obama and the Occupy Wall Street communist sympathizers.

The story of Julia is illustrated in the best tradition of socialist realism art literally taken out of the Soviet propaganda literature. According to Wikipedia definition of socialist realism art, it is “a teleologically-oriented style having its purpose the furtherance of the goals of socialism and communism.”

The entire story was supposed to present differences between President Obama’s vision of America with this of his opponent Romney and congressional leader Paul Ryan.

Age 3; Under President Obama: Julia is enrolled in a Head Start program to help get her ready for school. Because of steps President Obama has taken to improve programs like this one, Julia joins thousands of students across the country who will start kindergarten ready to learn and succeed.

Commentary by Alana Goodman:

Age 3: That’s this year, 2012. According to Obama’s chart, publicly held debt is roughly 80 percent of the GDP.

Age 17: Under President Obama: Julia takes the SAT and is on track to start her college applications. Her high school is part of the Race to the Top program, implemented by President Obama. Their new college- and career-ready standards mean Julia can take the classes she needs to do well.

Commentary by Alana Goodman:

Age 17: It’s 2029, and publicly held debt is now nearly 90 percent of the GDP. Fortunately, Obama’s Race to the Top program means that Julia can “take the classes she needs to do well.” Unfortunately, both liberals and conservatives have blasted Race to the Top as a failure, and interest in refunding it has reportedly been dwindling.

Age 18: Under President Obama: As she prepares for her first semester of college, Julia and her family qualify for President Obama’s American Opportunity Tax Credit—worth up to $10,000 over four years. Julia is also one of millions of students who receive a Pell Grant to help put a college education within reach.

Age 22: Under President Obama: During college, Julia undergoes surgery. It is thankfully covered by her insurance due to a provision in health care reform that lets her stay on her parents’ coverage until she turns 26.

Age 23: Under President Obama: Because of steps like the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act, Julia is one of millions of women across the country who knows she’ll always be able to stand up for her right to equal pay. She starts her career as a web designer.

Age 25: Under President Obama: After graduation, Julia’s federal student loans are more manageable since President Obama capped income-based federal student loan payments and kept interest rates low. She makes her payments on time every month, keeping her on track to repay her student loans.

Commentary by Alana Goodman:

Age 25 – It’s 2037, and publicly held debt as a percentage of GDP is now hovering around 100 percent. But the good news is that Julia’s personal debt burden will be reduced, as President Obama will keep interest low on student loans.

Age 27: Under President Obama: For the past four years, Julia has worked full-time as a web designer. Thanks to Obamacare, her health insurance is required to cover birth control and preventive care, letting Julia focus on her work rather than worry about her health.

Age 31: Under President Obama: Julia decides to have a child. Throughout her pregnancy, she benefits from maternal checkups, prenatal care, and free screenings under health care reform.

Age 37: Under President Obama: Julia’s son Zachary starts kindergarten. The public schools in their neighborhood have better facilities and great teachers because of President Obama’s investments in education and programs like Race to the Top.

Commentary by Alana Goodman:

Age 37 – It’s 2049, and publicly held debt is now 130 percent of GDP. However, Obama says that Julia’s kindergarten-age son Zachary will still be able to take advantage of Race to the Top program. (Note also that even under the most generous circumstances, it has now been at least 33 years since President Obama’s last term in office).

Age 42: Under President Obama: Julia starts her own web business. She qualifies for a Small Business Administration loan, giving her the money she needs to invest in her business. President Obama’s tax cuts for small businesses like Julia’s help her to get started. She’s able to hire employees, creating new jobs in her town and helping to grow the local economy.

Commentary by Alana Goodman:

Age 42 – It’s 2054, and publicly held debt is now 140 percent of the GDP.

Age 65: Under President Obama: Julia enrolls in Medicare, helping her to afford preventive care and the prescription drugs she needs.
Commentary by Alana Goodman:

Age 65 – It’s 2077, and publicly held debt is now 180 percent of the GDP. But Julia will still be covered by Medicare “as we know it,” at least if President Obama was reelected in 2012. That’s right, no Medicare reform for the next half-century, according to Obama.

Age 67: Under President Obama: Julia retires. After years of contributing to Social Security, she receives monthly benefits that help her retire comfortably, without worrying that she’ll run out of savings. This allows her to volunteer at a community garden.

Commentary by Alana Goodman:

Age 67 – It’s 2079, and publicly held debt is now 190 percent of the GDP. And thanks to President Obama’s 2012 reelection, Social Security is miraculously still solvent and unchanged.

Age 72 – Obama’s Life of Julia chart only shows us her life up until age 67. That’s too bad, since Julia hits a milestone around 2084, when publicly held debt will be just about 200 percent of the deficit – and rising.

Commentaries from the web:

Obama is setting forward a vision contrary to the American tradition of self-sufficiency–a welfare state that runs from cradle to grave. And it’s a dishonest vision, because it presents all of these benefits as “free,” never acknowledging that they are paid for through coercive taxation. – James Taranto.

This is Barack Obama’s vision of America — a welfare state from cradle to grave where parents and spouses are not needed because you have a federal government there for you the whole way from the delivery room to the death panel. – Erick Erikson.

Who the hell is “Julia,” and why am I paying for her whole life?
“Take a look at how President Obama’s policies help one woman over her lifetime — and how Mitt Romney would change her story.” It is one of the most brazenly statist pieces of campaign literature I can ever remember seeing. – David Harsanyi

The chart goes on to describe how Obama’s policies would help Julia and Romney’s would hurt her at various ages. As you can imagine, most of it is wildly dishonest.
And yet Obama’s Life of Julia chart pretends that we can continue along the current path without fundamental changes. – Alana Goodman

If the White House just keeps telling enough stories, Team Obama thinks it can spin its way into a second term in office. – Michelle Malkin
