To the Editor:

If the Congress has no legal standing to sue the president for failure to enforce laws it passed, then how is the legislative branch a coequal branch of government?

For that matter, how can the Supreme Court claim to also be coequal, and what keeps the executive branch from also disobeying its legal judicial rulings?

Hence, the executive branch is no longer coequal but superior and above the law, and therefore we now have tyranny.
