Political Cartoon: 'Trash Day?'

Kaiser Health News provides a fresh take on health policy developments with "Trash Day?" by Adam Zyglis.

Meanwhile, here is today's health policy haiku:

DEPENDENTS' PREGNANCY COVERAGE?

Does English duchess
receive maternity care
on prince's health plan?
-Anonymous

And, because it's Friday and it's August, here's a bonus haiku:
 
DID SOMEONE SAY RECESS? 

Like young schoolchildren:
legislative tantrum
right before recess.
-Anonymous
