When it comes to health care systems for the veterans, Flores says he wants there to be a private option.
He is supported by Senator John McCain who says it will make it easier for veterans who don't live near a veterans hospital to receive care locally.

Veteran Richard Ward tells us he thinks changing the system could cause prices to rise for vets.
"I would think that it would drive up the costs even more," says Ward. "You know, a lot of the care we get now as veterans, it is pretty well taken care of."

Edwards says it is important for veterans to receive the care they get through the public veterans hospital because their needs are specialized and can be better met there.
