General Motors CEO Dan Akerson paid a courtesy call on members of Congress this morning, asking for nothing but bringing news of a resurgent automaker.
Asked after his meetings at the Capitol Hill Club if there was anything the automaker needs from Washington, he said, "No, we're fine."
A bipartisan group gathered for his short, closed-door talk including several members of the Michigan delegation. Following that talk, Akerson spoke briefly to the Indiana delegation.
To show off the company's product line, a metallic gray Corvette -- a 2014 model that won't be sold until the third quarter of the year -- sat outside.
In talking to members of Congress, Akerson spoke about how it has returned to profitability since a government-sponsored bankruptcy in 2009. GM says it has created or retained 23,000 jobs since exiting bankruptcy.
