I met with my sales manager today, and we spent some time talking. I sell Medicare Advantage insurance - among several other jobs - and I asked him, "what impact will Obamacare have on Medicare Advantage?"
His answer surprised me. He said the $718B was being squeezed out of the MA program to pay for Obamacare, and it was essentially going to doom the whole Medicare Advantage program, and that in turn would doom Medicare itself. Instead Obama was going to replace everything with single payer.
But he told me not to worry. His boss, you see, is a Republican Party chair here in Ohio, and according to his internal polling, Romney is up 7 here. In fact, he is going to win the general election in a landslide.
"Really," I said. I knew better than to say more.
So there you have it - secret Republican data leaked on the eve of the election.
