GM Testifies in Front of Congress About Deaths Connected to Faulty Ignition Switches

GM CEO admits her company failed to act on a deadly safety issue for more than a decade.
General Motors is promising to change its culture after 13 deaths connected to problems with ignition switches.   General Motors CEO Mary Barra testified before congress yesterday.  Lawmakers want to know why only 15 employees have been fired and why the recalls are taking so long.
   
GM has issued a record 44 recalls of 18 million cars this year.  Barra admits her company failed to act on a deadly safety issue for more than a decade, ""I think the most important work that we're doing, the actions we're taking with the additional recalls, demonstrate how sincere we are about putting the customer at the center of everything we do."

GM is still working on establishing a compensation fund for victims.  It expects to begin processing claims by August.
