A trillion dollars…..all for Hank Paulson…..no strings…OK

Three pages. Yep THREE PAGES!!! Read it HERE, it won’t take long. This thing ,as written, gives 700 BILLION dollars to ONE guy to do with whatever HE sees fit. It can be used for ANYTHING. He could literally give a billion to the RNC for “consulting” fees. He could give a hundred billion to Blackwater to forcibly remove people from their homes. He could “hire” with no-bid contracts, the very corporations who caused this meltdown to administer his spending spree. And NOBODY can know or ASK what he does with this huge pile of taxpayer dollars. Check out section 8.

Sec. 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.

Spooky,huh? No agency OR court,even the supreme court can look at what he does. Remember that the Sec Treas serves at the pleasure of the President and Vice President. THEY can tell him what to do and he does it. So, they say pass it and trust me. Their track record of that kind of thing, claiming an emergency and ramming through massive power-grabs ( I think that’s just what this is) is abysmal.

I can’t believe that congress is going to pass this thing as-is. They might pass SOMETHING, but there is little stomach to hand the bush/cheney administration yet ANOTHER club to beat us poor schmucks over the head with. This is an election year. I will work against ANYone in congress who supports this abomonation against the American people……ANYONE!!
