The Obama Re-Election Campaign recently introduced a web site entitled the "Life of Julia," which clearly shows the liberal belief that government can take better care of us that we can do for ourselves. It portrays the life of one woman who was born during 2009 - Obama's first year in office - until she is 67 years old. It seems to anticipate that Obama is in charge of the government for 67 years. It takes "Julia" from birth through pre-school to college to Medicare to Social Security - always with assistance and aid from the government. It also shows how her life would be different on Mitt Romney's policies.
The Heritage Foundation believes that people should be in charge of their own lives and should be empowered with personal liberty and economic opportunities. Heritage has a presentation showing "A Better Life for Julia" using conservative principles. There are interesting facts supporting every suggested conservative reform.
Heritage also has a plan for Saving the American Dream. The site has ideas and suggestions covering tax reform, health care and Medicaid, Medicare, Social Security, and government spending; it explains how these affect millennials, families, low-income workers, entrepreneurs, baby boomers, and retirees. The site has a lot of information in it and is well worth the time to search it.
