Health Insurance Commissioner Christopher Koller made the news yesterday when he ordered a 1.1% rate decrease for people who buy their own health insurance. But he’s really reached the big time today.

He’s the featured poet in the Kaiser Family Foundation’s daily policy report.  Here’s his haiku (listed as anonymous, but we found him out!)


Evidence be damn’d.
Essential Health Benefits:
Whatever we want

If you understand that joke, I think you can officially call yourself a health wonk. Congratulations Chris.

Oh, and if you need further evidence of Koller’s versatility, check him out in his latest performance with the Providence Singers. For the record, he’s a tenor.
