Ted Cruz Adviser’s ‘Bad Joke’: Blaming Ebola On Obamacare

October 24, 2014 7:48 a.m.

A senior adviser to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) tweeted and then deleted a “bad joke” Thursday night that appeared to blame Ebola on Obamacare.

On the heels of the news that a doctor who recently had been working in Guinea tested positive for Ebola in New York City, Cruz’s deputy chief of staff, Nick Muzin, tweeted “Before Obamacare, there had never been a confirmed case of Ebola in the U.S.”

Muzin later deleted the tweet and called it a “bad joke.”
