The only thing GW knows about the military is how to avoid serving in it.

It is so foolish for an Obama supporter to talk about Bush's military service. Bush served his country in the National Guard. Obama did not serve.

2) How do Julia's parents pay for private preschool? Head Start is for low income children. If her parents could pay for private preschool, she wouldn't qualify for Head Start in the first place.Julia's parents actually work so they can afford to pay for their child's education
3) The school years mention "online learning options". Is it the Republican plan to do away with public schools altogether in favor of online schools like K12? If so, who is going to help Julia when she begins to struggle with the material? What guarantee do you have that Julia, who lives in a lower income world, even has a computer and internet access at home? Do you think her parents can afford for one of them to stay home and make sure she is doing her school lessons all day?The liberal public school system is a failure. we are falling behind all leading countries. School choice and vouchers plus inline work will be a better alternative
4) What is wrong with National Standards? Doesn't that just ensure that when a family moves to a new state they can be confident that the schools there have curriculum in sync with what the child was learning before they moved, and that the quality of education is the same from state to state?National standards are often faked by many teachers unions to get more government money
5) Julia's parents likely have not saved a dime toward college, due to just getting by with their low wage jobs. If Julia goes to college, it would most likely be part time with a low wage job, and it will take her years to finish.
6) How are Julia (who is now working at Target and trying to attend college part time) or her parents (who are working at low wage jobs because they never went to college) going to buy private health insurance on their paltry wages?Why didn't Julia's parents go to college? They had all of the liberal programs for the taxpayer to fund it for them
7) Julia already has the freedom to take a job where she doesn't have to pay Union dues - most jobs are like that. Only a small percentage of jobs in the U.S. are unionized. The unanswered question here is what Republican policies are going to create new jobs? Don't give me that cut taxes, trickle down crap. We've had about 30 years to see how well that works We didn't have 8% unemployment under trickle down policies did we? Employers are holding back new investment because of huge looming Obama tax INCREASES ridiculous Obama regulations that make creating jobs nearly impossible. Republicans will create immediate high paying oil,gas and coal jobs that will lead to lower energy prices and more consumer spending.
8) How silly to assume that since someone is Catholic or works at a Catholic school, they are automatically anti-birth control and would be upset if their health plan covered it. News flash: most Catholics use birth control. It is unconstitutional to force a religious organization to provide something against their beliefs
9) What an exaggeration and misinterpretation of the Affordable Care Act. Words fail me. Why have thousand of emplyers and unions requested and received waivers from Obamacare?
10) News flash: We already have the ability to choose our kids' school. Move, or pay for private. However, in most areas of the country, the "good" public schools are in middle to upper middle class areas. The working poor lose again. The working poor would be better off getting a voucher equal to what the cost is now for the failed union teacher system, so they too can choose a better school and force the union teachers to compete.
11) Most small businesses in this country don't have to worry about regulations or outside investors. They are more worried about the rising cost of employee benefits and being squeezed out of business by large corporations who get tax subsidies and have the money to sway politicians to change laws in their favor. Nonsense. Employers know that Obama is anti-business and are waiting for a new president before they make new investments to create jobs. Obama's tax increases will effect small business owners more than anyone else
12) They're planning to turn Medicare into a fee-for-service plan? I'm sure you'll see tons of old people in tri-corner hats hitting the streets with signs that say "Keep your hands off my Medicare" any day now Medicare will not change for those already on it. If changes are not made for future recipient there will be no medicare at all
13) We already have a tax code that "incentivizes" (God I hate that made up word) us to save for retirement. JHC the Republicans are trying to act like this is new? The fact remains that the working poor and lower middle class cannot afford to save for retirement. They're just getting by. But the Republicans don't care. They are just getting by in Obama's pathetic economy. In a vigorous republican recovery like Reagan's people could save for retirement and college

Yeah, there's a better life for you under Republican policy. But only if you're already doing pretty well. If things go wrong and you can't keep working at that higher wage job or if your business doesn't do well, if your job is outsourced and you can't find a comparable one, if you become disabled, or if you get a catastrophic illness, well, you're pretty much screwed. And I notice that there's no mention of how they plan to keep the cost of private health insurance, currently rising at a rate of about 20% a year, down. Or are these insurance companies just going to continue to raise rates indefinitely while they pay their executives 300 times what the average worker makes, and keep crying that they have to keep making huge profits to please the shareholders? It's asinine not to regulate this industry. I don't necessarily like the Affordable Care Act or the health insurance mandate, but I do think that that industry needs regulation badly.
There are already plenty of safety nets available for those that can not work or need a temporary hand. Republicans are not proposing to eliminate that. To say that is to be untruthful or uninformed.

I wonder how many of those Julias voted for Obama and became so dependent on the government. I would bet that most of them voted against him and will again unless more of them are black than white. I wonder why they didn't make this one black instead of white. Oh yeah, they are sure the black women will vote for him and not really sure about whites.

More and more all the time it seems. Sad really. Dependant on government from cradle to grave and that is the Utopia this government wants us to strive for.

Then when she gets to age 65 she is working in a community garden. That's all? Not running a company or getting another degree? They think women are stupid and it is coming out with their expectations for us.

Thats their dream for women? That she be alone, without family, struggling as a single parent, dependent on a government that is going broke?

This is not the American dream. Its creepy. Its what China promises its people.
YOu honestly don't believe there are single women struggling in America??
