Earlier this summer, Barack Obama unveiled his infamous “Life of Julia.” It was meant to be a story about all the ways a fictitious woman named Julia benefitted from government programs, but it basically just symbolized cradle-to-grave government dependence.
President Obama has stood in the way of traditional domestic energy production. He placed moratoriums on off-shore oil drilling, blocked completion of the Keystone Pipeline and has been an enemy of coal. This has cost Americans thousands of jobs and has boosted energy prices across the board. At the same time, he has dumped billions of dollars in subsidies to wind and solar companies, many of which have gone out of business at the taxpayer’s expense.
The national debt has climbed $6 trillion under Barack Obama, and he has been a roadblock to policies that would help us get through these tough times. Even when Julia earns her degree, her prospects for getting a job are slim, and she will be staring at massive college loan debt and even higher fuel costs.
Just another day in the life of Julia.
