    yup, and that's just part of it...they've been working on this and the "immunity" aspect of it for several years now.

    I have told people about it back then and they thought i was nuts...now that it has happened, they are like "..oh my...how did this happen?" and when I tell them "remember when i told you about this a couple years ago and you didn't believe me?"....of course they don't remember. (sigh)

    Until a Federal court overturns that part of it as unconstitutional. Nevertheless, it would slow down challenges to the Secretary's decisions until such a court ruling was issued, perhaps not finally resolved until appealed to the US Supreme Court. I don't like the sound or the spirit of it.
