While the bad news of the day dominated the headlines, DaimlerChrysler announced their intentions to invest $40 billion over the next five years in North America.

The announcement came CEO Juergen Schrempp during DCX's three-day visit to Washington D.C., where they will attempt to exert some influence on federal lawmakers who have largely been silent on the problems facing the domestic auto industry.
