No matter where you rent, you are entitled to have properly working faucets. They don't have to be imported from Sweden, they just need to be working properly.

That being said, if you can't have the landlord do his part, either move out or ask him for his written consent for you to fix/replace it yourself and back charge him.
If he agrees, you can hire a plumber or DIY.
If he doesn't respond and if you want to stay in the house, get advice from a tenant-landlord lawyer or a consumer/tenant group/advocate on your next move. Colorado(?) has plenty of those.

One thing you should never do is withhold rent. Remember, you have rights, but also obligations.

I'm a landlord and I would never put my tenants in such positions.

P.S, from the pictures, I would replace.

I believe you mean the SPOUT, not the faucet will not stay on and falls off. It could be a Millwaukee faucet, or Chicago Specialty although CS faucets also usually had an exposed shower riser.
