The Romance of the Rose, health policy edition

#Healthpolicyvalentines are a thing on Twitter. So, to aggregate my morning fun:

Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
I logged on Kynect,
And covered you.

        *     *     *

Violets are blue,
Roses are rouge.
Your income is low,
Your subsidy's huge. 

        *     *     *

Red is the rose,
And violet the heather.
We all have to jump
In the risk pool together. 

        *     *     *

Yellow's the daisy,
And white the azalea
I want the health coverage
They get in Westphalia.

        *     *     *

Azaleas are monochrome,
Daylilies, variegated.
My love for y'all
Is community-rated.

        *     *     *

I'm irrepressible,
You're ineluctable.
Hitched, we can manage
A lower deductible.

        *     *     *

Mosses are smooth,
Cacti are prickly.
You now can get covered
Even if you are sickly,

        *     *     *

And, in a blow to epistemic closure, #Republicanhealthpolicyvalentines:

Bare is the maple,
And green is the holly.
Insurance without copay
Is liberal folly.

        *     *     *

Roses are red,
Violets are blue.
The feds' safety hammock
Is waiting for you.

        *     *     *
 
Pink the wisteria,
And white the viburnum.
You want gummint bennies?
You'll just have to earn 'em.

        *     *     *

Makers are red,
Takers are blue.
Ain't got no insurance?
Too bad for you.

        *     *     *

Blue are the irises,
Red the astilbe.
Our health plan for the poor:
"What will be will be."

And then there's #HealthInsuranceValentinesForLowIncomeRepublicans:

Roses are red,
Except when they're blue.
I'd buy Obamacare
If I were you.

        *     *     *
Update, 2/13/15: second annual lovefest here.
