One of the provisions of the plan (in addition to no oversight or review, and handing over $700 billion to dole out as they please) allows Treasury to hire anyone they like, including private contractors, to figure out how to implement this turd.

Or Halliburton.

We're going to find out later that basically this song-and-dance is an excuse to pay off anyone who didn't get adequately paid off over the last 8 years, and might be thinking about selling a book about whatever it is they know.
