The Real “Julia”

 

 A new Obama campaign graphic  went viral this morning for all the wrong reasons as Republicans took to twitter once again to outsmart the Obama campaign.

The infographic – “Julia” – shows what an imaginary girl named Julia would gain through Obama’s policies, and how Mitt Romney’s policies would hurt her.

We can’t make an infographic as “cool” as Obama’s, but here’s what we think would really happen to #Julia if she existed:

Under the Obama administration Julia may have never even been born due to less restrictions and more funding for abortion procedures.

At the age of five, Julia must attend an overcrowded public school. Because teachers unions have curbed school choice programs, Julia is unable to attend a private or charter school that caters to her needs and strengths.

Because Julia had to go to an overcrowded public school that did not address her special needs, she did not do well in school and did not qualify for scholarships. At age 18 she has to take out massive amounts of loans to afford college.

When Julia graduates from college at age 22 with a mound of debt, thanks to the Obama administration’s overregulation and constant threats of tax hikes on small businesses, there were no jobs and Julia must live in her parents’ basement.

When Julia turns 26 she finally gets a job at a solar panel store earning minimum wage. However, her insurance runs out under her parents’ healthcare plan, and because  she cannot afford her own plan, she must pay a fine to the government for not having health insurance.

When Julia turns 28 she has a great idea for a small business. But due to the regulations and taxes on small businesses under the Obama administration, she cannot open one.

Eventually Julia opens a small business at age 32 and it does really well. But once she gets to 50 employees she cannot afford to hire more people and create more jobs because she cannot afford to pay for the healthcare insurance for all her employees, as mandated by the Obama administration.

Remarkably her business continues to flourish but due to the heavy taxes on the top bracket of income, when Julia is 40, she is unable to invest in more jobs because of the amount of taxes she must pay.

At the age of 65 Julia wants to retire but cannot because there is no money for social security or medicare.

When Julia turns 75 she becomes very ill and requires a life saving surgery. Although she can afford it, the Obama administration’s Independent Payment Advisory Board AKA “death panel” declines her procedure, and Julia dies.
