  • A Better Life for "Julia"

    Yesterday, President Obama’s team introduced the “Life of Julia,” a portrayal of a liberal vision of life for one woman. We have taken the time to revise the original and show how conservative policies, like the ones outlined in Heritage’s Saving the American Dream plan, can empower Julia and all Americans without government interference at every stage of life.

      I have to give credit to Heritage for promoting a plan. That is way ahead of most on the left and the right.

      However, I found your presentation a bit presumptuous and ridiculous, but then I looked at Obama's and realized that it wasn't that bad after all.

      I guess I was dumb, I was happy just attaining things in life, like marriage, childbirth, buying a house, seeing kids through school and retirement. these things I got because I went to work at age 14, husband had also worked since that age, we worked together as a unit when raising our children and teaching good values, now I sit back and not only see my successful children but my beautiful grandchildren who follow our conservative path. I never knew I was suppose to let someone do the work for me, just as I today, still at 80 years of age keep house, and cook while running a day care.

      Wasn't the plan originally supposed to detail the adventures of Julia and her trwin sister
      as they went through life? I guess her sister wasn't up to Planned Parenthood standards
      and was left on the cutting room floor. For shame!

      Gee Foundry why don't you post this on your Latino Site. It's after all how most of them are already supported with more plans waiting in the wings under our new socialized schedule according to Bo Jingles. It's called spreading around the wealth..you must of miss that part.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
