They hate the law

The EPA has chosen to defy the Congressional Subpoena.

The Supreme Court ordered them to determine the effect of greenhouse gases on global warming. They did nothing. After a year of doing nothing, Congress subpoenaed what the EPA claimed were two draft documents relating to greenhouse gases. They have flat refused, making the weird claim that releasing the documents before they are finished "would be injurious to important Executive Branch institutional prerogatives," whatever the hell that means. I've known six-year-olds to come up with better excuses.

What in the hell will it take for this spineless Congress to actually act like Congress?
