Harry Reid; John BoehnerWord on the Hill is those ‘Fiscal Cliff’ negotiations got real!

Speaker of the House, John Boehner, (R-Ohio), and Senate Majority Leader, Harry Reid, (D-Nevada), have never been bosom buddies, but as the deadline to avoid going over the cliff came into view, and Boehner apparently began to accept that President Barack Obama didn’t plan on blinking twice on taxes, his frustration got the best of him, reports Politico.

Reid accused Boehner of running the House like a “dictatorship” and caring more about his position than compromising to avoid throwing the nation into recession.

Boehner’s reply was political cinema at it’s finest.

“Go f— yourself,” Boehner sniped as he pointed his finger at Reid, according to multiple sources present.

Reid, a bit startled, replied: “What are you talking about?”

Boehner repeated: “Go f— yourself.”

The harsh exchange [took place] just a few steps from the Oval Office — which Boehner later bragged about to fellow Republicans…”

See Obama speak on the ‘Fiscal Cliff’ deal below:

As previously reported by NewsOne, the ‘Fiscal Cliff’ deal made it battered and bruised through the House with a 257-167 vote, that included 151 Republican and 16 Democratic “nays,” the Republicans blinked first and Congress passed the first tax increase in 20 years, signaling a win for Obama.

Included in the Democratic win column was an extension of unemployment benefits and tax cuts that were in the president’s stimulus plan. Republican victories included “a permanent fix to the alternative minimum tax and estate tax.”

Boehner could not rally enough support from conservatives who refused to agree to the tax increase. But House Democrats pushed the deal through.

Boehner cast a rare Speaker vote in favor of the bill, while Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) voted no, exposing a widening rift within the Republican Party.
