Exposing Secrets in the Stimulack

I don't want to be an alarmist, but it's pretty hard not to be alarmed when you find the RATS they snuck into the Stimulus Spending Bill.

Beginning with the RAT Board...
When Iowa Republican Sen. Charles Grassley, a longtime champion of inspectors general, read the words “conduct or refrain from conducting,” alarm bells went off. The language means that the board — whose chairman will be appointed by the president — can reach deep inside a federal agency and tell an inspector general to lay off some particularly sensitive subject. Or, conversely, it can tell the inspector general to go after a tempting political target. [link]
Thanks to Lou (from Canada) for forwarding this article to me. I had no idea the language was snuck into this Bill. It's unfortunate that not a single Senator had time to read through the entire Bill before voting on it.

And today, BO announced Biden will be overseeing the Bill.

Is anyone else out there alarmed by all of this?
