Some scary words indeed

The Paulson bailout package being considered by the US Congress contains some language that lovers of democracy will find really scary. Here they are as reported by The Huffington Post today:

"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."

This sounds so un-American to me. Could it be that they will survive in the final legislation?
