Yeah, Right - Version #338909829098378947

Section 8. Review: 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.
That is from the $700 bailout bill put together by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson over the weekend. Sounds exactly like Cheney or Bu$hCo, or any of a large cadre of Bu$hCo lackeys. Here's Paulson today, testifying before the Senate Banking Committee:
We gave you a simple, three-page legislative outline and I thought it would have been presumptuous for us on that outline to come up with an oversight mechanism. That’s the role of Congress, that’s something we’re going to work on together. So if any of you felt that I didn’t believe that we needed oversight: I believe we need oversight. We need oversight.
Via Think Progress. My emphasis.
