Former General Motors CEOs and other executives should be called to testify to before Congress about the company's slow response to defective ignition switches in cars that have been linked to at least 13 deaths, a Democratic senator said on Tuesday.

Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., an outspoken member of the Senate Commerce Committee that is investigating GM, said there are "a whole set of questions on why there were so many delays in taking action to remedy this situation" that are still unanswered by the company.
