    .... and I have spent part of my young life in his current congressional district, where I still have relatives.

    I have zero patience for people who campaign on one thing or another prominently as a topic, and then don't follow through on it.

    Tri care does not cover civilians. The civilians in his current congressional district are still waiting for .... something.

    At first he was saying that he just didn't see how Medicare for all program would be fiscally feasible.

    I don't see how perpetually running foreign wars to preserve our access to petroleum products when we don't tax the people making the gross profits off of said wars to pay for said wars, and let them run the entire nation into ruinous debt,  is fiscally feasible to infinity, either.

      Sestak has been in favor of ending the Iraq war from the time he began running for Congress.

      He has also been on TV numerous times to speak about the Afghanistan war.  When asked about sending the 40K troops McChrystal is asking for, Sestak strongly advised Pres. Obama to stop and reconsider this, and to define the goals of this war, and to provide an exit strategy before escalating.

      He also was up against the military-industrial complex in his previous assignments in the Navy when he was tasked with redefining our Navy for a new post-cold war era.  This didn't sit well with the big military contractors who like very expensive, very long contracts for very big ships, et al.  

      More recently, he was opposed to a contract for a large number of fighter jets and engaged in debates about why we needed fewer.

      This doesn't sound like a warmonger to me.  You are painting a false picture of this man, continually, and he doesn't deserve it.  I cannot understand why you constantly rail against him.  Are you an Arlen Specter supporter?  If so, just be honest and say so and defend your candidate instead of unfairly tearing down his opponent.
