Bill Flores Puts Bullseye on Seniors
the Flores chopping block
Bill Flores has made it clear that he intends to privatize Veterans healthcare. Virtually every expert on veterans services – both Republican and Democrat – warn that this move would be disastrous for military retirees and our men and woman serving in uniform.
In a recent television ad, former Fort Hood commander Lieutenant General (U.S. Army, ret.) Paul Funk spoke out for all of our nations’ veterans, saying “Bill Flores is spreading outright lies against Chet Edwards” and warning Flores’ privatization scheme “would hurt our nation's veterans, badly.”Millionaire Republican candidate Bill Flores has staked out positions that would have a devastatingly negative effect on senior citizens and their families. Flores’ positions conflict harshly with the views of most mainstream American voters. About two-thirds of voters oppose the privatization of Social Security and Medicare, plans supported by Bill Flores (NBC/Wall Street Journal Poll, 8/30/10; Campaign for America’s Future, 8/12/10).
However, if you follow media reports on the race for Congress in Congressional District 17, you can’t be blamed for knowing little or nothing about Bill Flores’ ideological hostility to programs that directly benefit seniors. So far, there has been little coverage of the policy positions held by the candidates in the race.
