The U.S. Congress was taken over by teahadist
Republicans. These people who, for whatever reason, are opposed to anything proposed by President Obama. Even though the tea party
is only a small, but growing, part of the Republican Party, they seem to hold the House under their control. The "spite" refers to this delusional minority
holding the government hostage as they stubbornly try to get their way. This spite lead to the now infamous tea party downgrade
and the equally infamous tea party shutdown
would rather destroy our economy and credit rating out of spite than compromise with Democrats.
The tea party damaged America's credit rating out of spite and their opposition to reason and the tradition of compromise. The Republicans' Spite House is a big problem for Obama, the Congressional Democrats and all Americans!
