Here's the final law from this fiasco:
Public Law 111-5 Date Approved: February 17, 2009 Full Title: An act making supplemental appropriations for job preservation and creation, infrastructure investment, energy efficiency and science, assistance to the unemployed, and State and local fiscal stabilization, for the fiscal year ending September 30, 2009, and for other purposes.
Did you catch that last part; "and for other purposes"? Who writes a law with ambiguous verbiage like that...only someone who is planning on using the money in ways other than what was intended; indeed what had promised to the American People.
And finally there is the Financial Reform Bill that was enacted Jul 24, 2010. In the PDF search field enter "FOIA"; find the second occurrence and then read until you discover that the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) has been authorized to deny Freedom of Information ACT requests. That means the power (which is very great) of the SEC cannot be questioned. Therefore, the ability to sell Smoke (with out the mirrors) cannot be investigated by ANYONE. Yeah this is the same SEC that failed to catch Bernie Madoff. The same SEC that failed to notice the games that Enron was playing with investors money. But cheer up because this is the SEC that does not have to explain anything to us, the Peons , anymore, so they won't look so bad when they miss all the dirty tricks this this Administration will be pulling on us by pushing through Crap and Tax without requiring any legislation and our SEC "watchdog" will "Transform" into a Pit Bull that growls in the dark.
Oh, did I happen to mention that since Congress has delegated so much of its power in the Stimulus, Obamacare and Financial Reform bills that Cass Sunstein, our Regulatory Czar can bypass it entirely and they will find themselves out on the same branch with us, the "Little People" that are too stupid to know what the right thing do is unless the Government tells us.
