Jealousy

"News of the decision made its way through the back corridors of power last week, prompting an unusual attack from the US Treasury in which it accused the EC of a power grab and argued that it was acting like "a supranational tax authority that reviews member states.""

They're just irked that 1) they didn't think of it first and 2) that only US bodies are allowed to act in this way in their eyes!
