Obamacare Propaganda Re-Imagined: The Real Life Of Julia

December 11, 2013 by  

An effort by the White House last year to push Obamacare on young women with the release of “The Life of Julia,” a series of infographics detailing how government might help one woman along from the age of 3 to 67, has been re-imagined in one blog’s effort to provide a more realistic take on life with Obamacare.

The White House’s original propaganda effort was heavily criticized in conservative circles following its release for its celebration of cradle to grave government involvement in Julia’s life.

As I reported in May 2012: “The initiative features a fictitious woman named Julia whose life can be followed from the age of 3 to 67 by clicking through a number of slides. Each of the slides depicts—in a garishly Dear Leader sort of way— how the woman’s life would differ under a nanny state controlled by Obama and under one controlled by Mitt Romney.”

A writer for Policymic noted at around the same time: “When Julia starts public school, Obama is there. When she goes to college, he’s there. When she decides to have a child, there is no mention of a spouse or any other family, but it is okay, because Obama is there instead. Do you want to start a business ladies? You probably can’t without Obama.”

Now that Obamacare is beginning to affect millions of Americans, a Tumblr blog set up by Independent Women’s Voice provides a look at a look at what life is really like for many people in Julia’s shoes right now. In “The Real Life Of Julia” government mandates stemming from Obamacare become a hindrance rather than a help to Julia’s success.
