A progressive organization called the Agenda Project Action Fund has produced a new ad which attempts to politicize Ebola by blaming its spread on Republicans and budget cuts.

Brutal New Ad Blames GOP Spending Cuts For Ebola Deaths (VIDEO)

The one minute ad, called “Republican Cuts Kill,” splices grueling images of body bags and workers in hazmat suits with footage of top Republicans like Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (KY) and House Speaker John Boehner (OH) calling for spending cuts. It also features 2014 Republican Senate candidates Bill Cassidy of Louisiana, Cory Gardner of Colorado, Tom Cotton of Arkansas and Pat Roberts of Kansas.

The spot was produced by the Agenda Project Action Fund, the same progressive group that has made controversial anti-Republican ads such as “Granny Off the Cliff.” The group’s spokeswoman, Erica Payne, said Monday the ad would air in Kentucky, North Carolina, South Dakota and Kansas — all of which feature competitive Senate races that could swing the majority.

Here’s the ad:

Oh, where to begin?

As you may recall, Obama has been wrong about almost everything regarding Ebola.

Byron York of the Washington Examiner recently pointed this out:

In just two weeks, Obama proven completely wrong about Ebola

The chances of an Ebola outbreak in the United States are “extremely low,” Obama said. U.S. are working with officials in Africa “to increase screening at airports so that someone with the virus doesn’t get on a plane for the United States.” And then this:

In the unlikely event that someone with Ebola does reach our shores, we’ve taken new measures so that we’re prepared here at home. We’re working to help flight crews identify people who are sick, and more labs across our country now have the capacity to quickly test for the virus. We’re working with hospitals to make sure that they are prepared, and to ensure that our doctors, our nurses and our medical staff are trained, are ready, and are able to deal with a possible case safely.

Obama added that in the unlikely event an Ebola case appeared in the United States, “we have world-class facilities and professionals ready to respond. And we have effective surveillance mechanisms in place.”

Now two weeks later, the president’s reassurances have turned out to be false.

As far as budget cuts go, Jim Geraghty of National Review reminds us that the GOP increased spending at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in January by 8.2 percent:

Democrats know they might lose control in November so this is what they’ve been reduced to.

If this is all they’ve got, it’s The End.
