Really? Would you say ミルクが飲まない instead of ミルクを飲まない? After all, ない is an adjective.
My own experience is limited, but from pretty much everything I've heard, there's nothing wrong with using を with -tai forms. Yes, some people, including native Japanese speakers, will recommend が, but by and large they're used with を nowadays.
