Admiral Joe Sestak for U.S. SenateJohn J. Bury Salem-News.com
Admiral Sestak always supported our veterans when he was in Congress, and we need him now in the U.S. Senate.
(MEDIA, PA) - When Admiral Joe Sestak declared he would be running for the U.S. Senate this week, I was happy to hear it primarily because of one reason: he will take care of our veterans. Our Senators and Congressmen voted to send them to war in Iraq and Afghanistan, adding $1 trillion to our national dept for the cost of the wars.
But when those same Washington, D,C. politicians were asked to help our returning war veterans with a jobs bill, Pennsylvania’s Senator Toomey-who voted for the wars when as a Congressman from 1998 to 2005, voted “no” to help our veterans with the jobs bill.
Admiral Sestak always supported our veterans when he was in Congress, and we need him now in the U.S. Senate. Otherwise, we will continue to have Senator Toomey who doesn’t understand either the cost of wars, or the cost of what we owe our veterans who actually fight them.
A good example of Senator Toomey’s lack of understanding, in 2012, a Senate bill to help sick Vietnam veterans was ignored. In my opinion, Admiral Sestak would not have ignored that bill.
