GM’s Mary Barra Struggles To Answer Questions Asked By Congress Yesterday [Video]

Mary Barra faced tough questions from Congress yesterday in Washington.

I don’t think she represented General Motors very well. Take a look at some of her testimony.

There has been speculation that the Federal government might have known about GM’s safety issues, back when the company was known as “Government Motors”, and I’m sure that the company’s former CEO, Dan Akerson was aware of them as well. Now Mary Barra, the auto maker’s new CEO, has her hands full as recalls continue and the families who have lost loved ones in at least 13 deaths learn that it was GM’s error, not human error that caused those accidents.

Multiple sources say this morning that a 57 cent part would have been the fix.

Mary Barra, GM’s former head of vehicle safety, faced Congress yesterday, in Washington, to answer some very basic questions. Lawmakers basically wanted to know the who, what and when in regards to the 2.6 million General Motors’ vehicles that have been recalled since February, and if the automaker knew about the serious safety issues ten tears ago.

See how she answered, or tried to answer the questions Congress threw her way in Washington yesterday in the video below.

Will General Motors be able to bounce back from these poorly handled safety issues?
