There is a story told about a young girl who was walking along the road when she came upon a snake. To her surprise, the snake spoke to her. “I’m so cold,” he said. “Would you pick me up and put me under your coat long enough to warm me up?”
“But you are a snake!” she replied. “If I pick you up, you’ll bite me!”
“No, I won’t!” he insisted. “I give you my word.”
Finally, the girl relented. She picked up the snake and put him under her coat, just as he had asked. Soon she felt a sharp pain in her side, and she cried out as she dropped the snake to the ground.
“You bit me! After you promised that you wouldn’t!”
“What do you expect from a snake?” he hissed as he crawled away.
NBC News is reporting that the Obama administration has consistently lied for years about their health care plan. The president often asserted that those who pay for their own insurance would be able to keep their plan. However, he knew all along that this wasn’t true. In fact, as many as 50 to 75 percent of the nearly 14 million people who pay for their own insurance may have their coverage dropped. The Obama administration knew this three years ago, but kept the truth away from the people in order to gain the greater government control that liberals so desperately want.
Many people are not surprised at this lack of character on behalf of the president. We knew he was pro-abortion in 2008, yet we elected him anyway. By the time 2012 came around, Mr. Obama had come out of the closet and voiced his approval of homosexual “marriage”, yet we re-elected him.
We got what we deserved. We knew what he was when we picked him up.
“When he is tried, let him be found guilty, and may his prayers condemn him.–Psalm 109:7.
