Bailout? Not like this.

I wonder why the powers-that-be aren't publicizing this particular statement in the bailout proposal:
"Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency."
Got that? NO oversight. NO review. Just give him the money and go away. No need to know how it will be spent or how it is disbursed. Nope. Just trust us. Give us the money, and release all control. Give the Executive Branch full and unfettered authority to do whatever it wants with it, and just shut the hell up.

Sorry, as a taxpayer, this is not an acceptable solution.
