SEC files suit to enforce subpoena on Congress. So, Obama Administration now taking subpoenas seriously?

The SEC has filed a lawsuit to enforce a subpoena issued to House Ways and Means committee. This is setting up a court battle pitting the powers of the Executive branch against the Legislative. While I am firm in my belief that Congress should not consider themselves above the law, I am also struck by the Administration’s responses to subpeonas. Seems they’re not so quick to demand compliance when it’s Congress issuing the subpeona on them as they are the reverse.

I think Congress should feel free to delay for as long as the IRS has. Or, better yet, that they should be filing lawsuits of their own.
