“Today the Secretary of Defense asked for six additional months to study upgrading the Air Force’s air refueling tankers. I am confident that the Secretary will reach the same conclusions that the Congress has reached: we need new tankers, we need them now, and Boeing offers the best product for taxpayers and the men and women of our armed forces. I am confident that at the end of the day America’s military will get new tankers and that Boeing workers will build them.”
