Parliamentary Valentines?

First, there was #HealthPolicyValentines:

  • I promise to cover you, in sickness and in health, 'til death panels do us part.

  • My love for you is like health care cost growth: out of control.

  • You are my statistically significant other

Then, Justin Wolfers created #FedValentines:

  • I'd like to borrow you overnight and then hold you to maturity

  • Roses are red, violets are blue, thank you for Twist and, of course, QE2!

  • The non-traditional stimulus was way better than I thought it would be

But both have reminded me that 14 Feb is a long parliamentary sittings day (the House rises at 10.30pm). So since I won't be taking my wife out for a romantic dinner, perhaps I should be coming up with an apt parliamentary Valentine. Here's a few to start off:

  • If you were a bill, I'd pass you without amendment

  • You'll always be my first preference

  • Our love is always in surplus

  • It's hard to believe I was ever a swinging voter

But I'm sure Twitter can do better. Let's make the hashtag #AusPolValentines
