Luckily it sounds like congress is going to try to do it job, it should be noted (time for Gov class) that the Legislative branch is NOT designed to be efficient. It's an intentionally slow process, they had this wacky notion that some thought should go into new laws. There needs to be back and forth, compromises must be hammered out and that takes time. Congress is not supposed to ebb and flow with the whims of the masses, it must keep its head clear of short term worries and focus on the long term good of the country. The Wars and the Patriot act should be good enough examples of why Congress needs to be more concerned with writing good bills than getting them out quickly.
“It would not be understandable if members of Congress sought to use this emergency legislation to pass unrelated provisions, or to insist on provisions that would undermine the effectiveness of the planTo use a phrase I never thought I would, I agree with Bush (Ahhhhh!!!) that congress shouldn't use this emergency bill to try to pass unrelated shit. I honestly don't think anyone will. But his part about undermining the effectiveness is the important part, does accountability decrease effectiveness? Only if your goal is to rob the American people. I really don't think that statement is crazy either, I'm honestly afraid that this is going to turn into an even bigger swindle of taxpayers money for the profit of the super rich than the Wars. Honestly how else can you explain this provision, which I mentioned before.
"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 shit needs to go, fuck everything else that needs to go.
