Ted Cruz Senior Adviser Connects Ebola To Obamacare On Twitter. It Didn’t Go Down Well
A senior adviser and deputy Chief of Staff to Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) somehow connected Ebola to Obamacare, then deleted the tweet after a backlash on the social site ensued.
He later said he deleted it and that it was a “bad joke.” This “joke” follows the revelation of a doctor in New York City who tested positive for the Ebola virus.

It didn’t go over well.
There was never a case of ebola in the US, until Ted Cruz was elected into the Senate

He’s sorry. Unfortunately for Nick, nothing is “deleted” on Twitter.
Earlier tweet was a bad joke, my sarcasm did not translate well online. Deleted. — Nick Muzin (@nickmuzin) October 24, 2014
Well that went over swimmingly.
Before Obamacare, there were insurance companies that giddily hiked their prices if you had a pre-existing condition.
