Cruz Engages in Cheap Insults on the Minimum Wage

Earlier today, at a rally in Williamsport, Pennsylvania, Ted Cruz was asked about the minimum wage and why raising it is always a bad idea. He answered by saying that, “politicians love giving away free stuff…there ain’t no such thing as a free lunch.”

In response, DNC National Press Secretary Mark Paustenbach issued the following statement:

“This cheap insult is further evidence that Cruz and the rest of the Republican field is hopelessly out-of-touch with the struggles of hard-working American families. This is not new. Mitt Romney used the same offensive language in 2012 when he told his donors that members of the NAACP want ‘free stuff.’ Remember that every single GOP candidate for president is opposed to raising the minimum wage. America needs a leader in the Oval Office who can build upon the progress of the last seven years, not resort to cheap insults and failed policies.”
