60 Plus Association—Guardian of Senior Rights Award

Boss of the Plains Award - Congressman Flores received 2011 Boss of the Plains Award from the Ranching Heritage Association in Lubbock on June 10. Flores, who comes from a long line of ranchers, grew up working with his Dad and  brothers and sisters on a ranch in the Texas Panhandle. He believes he received a lot of his work ethic, his appreciation for history and closeness to family from working on the ranch. The principles for which the ranching industry are founded on – a belief in the free market economy, a belief in self-determination and a strength of self-accountability – are exactly what Congressman Flores is trying to fulfill in Congress today.

Guardian of Seniors' Rights Award - Because of his commitment to the elderly, Congressman Flores earned the coveted Guardian of Seniors' Rights award from the 60 Plus Association, a national non-partisan organization advocating lower taxes and an adherence to the Constitution. 60 Plus Chairman Jim Martin said, "we seniors felt we should show our gratitude to dedicated lawmakers like Bill Flores who show compassion towards the elderly by pledging to 1) always protect Medicare, 2) always protect Social Security and 3)just as importantly, to vote against wasteful spending of our tax dollars, excessive spending that has our government now borrowing over 40 cents of every dollar it needs to pay its bills. Seniors have to balance their budgets and so should our government.”

100% Pro-Worker Score - In recognition of his dedication to workers' rights, Congressman Flores received a 100% Pro-Worker Score on the Competitive Enterprise Institute's (CEI) Labor Policy Scorecard. A public policy organization dedicated to the principles of free markets and limited government, CEI, created a Labor Scorecard, in which Flores scored 100% in support of workers' rights for the first part of the 112th Congress. The score is determined based on the CEI policy determinations that support worker freedom and the elimination of Big Labor’s privileges across the country.
