Today, the President will travel to Michigan to tour and speak to workers at a Chrysler Auto Plant in Detroit and a General Motors Auto Plant in Hamtramck. Just over a year after President Obama made tough decisions to save Chrysler and GM, these companies are returning to profitability, hiring workers, and keeping plants open. And because of the steps the Administration and Congress have taken with Cash for Clunkers and the Recovery Act, the industry overall is strengthening.
