No suprise here: As part of the government's ever-growing bailout of the auto industry, GMAC, General Motors' financing arm, will receive about $7.5 billion from the Treasury today, according to numerous reports. GMAC emerged from the stress tests as the weakest of the 19 companies, and the administration has said that it would receive more aid. Its total bailout is now $12.5 billion, but the Wall Street Journal reports that GMAC could be receiving as much as $7 billion more.
