Massachusetts democratic senator Elizabeth Warren needs some news this morning when she said of the FAA shouldn't ground though 737 Max planes. After that deadly crash in Ethiopia. I asked her about that statement as well as the prospect of former vice president Joseph Biden getting in the already crowded. Democratic presidential primary take a lesson. You put out a pretty big statement first thing this morning calling for the FAA to ground those new 737. And I sometimes practice when in direct contradiction to the FAA that seventy don't have any evidence these planes are unsafe so why go out there going to be the end the aids experts in the field. So the whole point is to see any FA like we've had two plane crashes in less than six months the FAA itself. Has said gee there are some updates coming for the software. Nobody knows the cause of these crashes. China and Australia the United Kingdom several other countries have said while until we have more information let's just keep these points on the ground. Until we get information about wind east crashes occurred. You know what's to come first is the safety of people who are flying in those airplanes the American public not the profits of. Boeing would you not do. Well I'm asking that the agony do not trust that the experts senate I was sent right. Brian censors when it's your democratic calling season ranking member on the science and technology and need transportation committee and he's and then.

That no they didn't want to put in jeopardy by Salem that Boeing had pending with Saudi Arabia. Profits are not the very first responsibility for the first responsibility is the safety and security of the people of the United States. So for me. I just want to be sure this is not about protecting Boeing's profits this is about protecting people who get on those airplanes and count on the fact that they're going to be safe.
