    GM's Barra apologizes to families

    GM's Barra apologizes to families

    General Motors CEO Mary Barra, in written testimony for a House subcommittee hearing on Tuesday into GM's recall of 2.53 million small cars for faulty switches, says: "Sitting here today, I cannot tell you why it took years for a safety defect to be announced in that (small-car) program, but I can tell you that we will find out."
    In her testimony filed in advance, Barra promises the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee's Subcommittee on Oversight, "When we have answers, we will be fully transparent with you, with our regulators and with our customers."
    When the switches fail, they shut off power to air bags. That fault has been linked by GM to 13 deaths 12 deaths in the U.S. and one in Canada.

    I listened to a little of the hearing today. The lady could be a good politician with the phrases she used (which pols use all the time): "get to the bottom of this so it'll never happen again", "transparency", "hold people accountable", "ongoing investigation".

    Lots of emptiness.

    I saw Mary B in an interview. She seems like smart gal. Go, Mary, go...

    It was Obama's fault for saving GM.

    Actually this all took place when a man ran GM, she only took over in the last 3 months.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    I don't understand why anybody would have to testify in front of Congress. This seems to be happening more and more. Whatever happened to law suits and fixing the problems.

    Also if there was going to be hearings, why didn't they subpoena the guy that was running GM and making decisions at the time. Why call somebody that has only been in the position for 3 months when this happened over 10 years ago?
