Inviting All Poets: The Health Policy Haiku

As proof that Daily Report readers are a deep and multi-talented bunch, we're unveiling a new Daily Report feature. It's the Health Policy Haiku -- and here is the first round of offerings:


State of the Union
has some words about health care.
Look. Can you find them?


'Obamacare' thoughts
Push for repeal? Or ignore?
Linger on the Hill

From now on, we hope to post at least one health policy haiku weekly based on staff contributions and reader submissions. Please send your ideas to and let us know if you want to include your name or remain anonymous. Keep in mind that we give extra points if you link back to a KHN original story.

And please remember...

Hearing from readers
With haikus about health news
Will light up our days 

This is part of Kaiser Health News' Daily Report - a summary of health policy coverage from major news organizations. The full summary of the day's news can be found here and you can sign up for e-mail subscriptions to the Daily Report here. In addition, our staff of reporters and correspondents file original stories each day, which you can find on our home page.
