Red Alert Politics: Ted Cruz: Young people can do without condescension and patronizing from Washington
While the White House continues to pander to Millennials in an effort to convince them to sign up for Obamacare, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) believes the Obama administration’s attempts are nothing but condescending and patronizing to young people.
Speaking with radio host Ben Shapiro, Cruz criticized the White House for its repeated tries to encourage young people to sign up for health insurance under Obamacare.
“You know, I think young people can do without the condescension and patronizing from Washington,” Cruz told Shapiro, referencing an ad featuring First Lady Michelle Obama in which she said, “We nag you because we love you.”
With the open-enrollment period coming to a close on March 31, the White House has tapped A-list celebrities — and their mothers — athletes and pop culture icons to help reach Millennials.
