RUSH: The regime campaign effort, the reelection effort has this slideshow. They've put up a website with a slideshow that covers an imaginary American named "Julia" from age three up until age 67. All the benefits,
all the wonderful things that will happen to Julia in her life if Obama is reelected! What it is (whether it's intended or not) is a perfect illustration of liberal cradle-to-grave care for every citizen with the government making every decision, making everything possible, and leaving nothing to chance. And, of course, a life of utopian paradise.
So Obama is gonna set Julia up from cradle to grave. Every is need handled! Every need she has, there's a government program for it that's practically free, including starting her own business. Everything is practically free! Age 67. "Under President Obama: Julia retires. After years of contributing to Social Security," she discovers there isn't any left for her. The program has long been bankrupt. But Julia, blithering idiot that she is, being taken care of by the state for the previous 66 years, has no clue that Social Security is broke. Despite the fact that she's been contributing to it. "[S]he receives monthly benefits that help her retire comfortably, without worrying that she'll run out of savings."
How many of you on Social Security now live this way? Julia retires at age 67. What is this, about 2070? No. This is 2012, so after 67, yeah, it's 2077 or 2078, whatever. "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." Does that describe you today who are on Social Security? Julia, in the future, isn't going to have Social Security, thanks to Obama. And she isn't going to have Medicare. And by the time Julia gets to 67, the only question she's going to have is: "Which reeducation camp does she have to go to next?"
