Get that rage out where you can, Boehner. As the tense weekend of fiscal-cliff negotiations were just getting started, House Speaker John Boehner reportedly walked up to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid outside the Oval Office on Friday and said, “Go f--k yourself,” according to a report in Politico on Wednesday. Startled, Reid reportedly replied, “What are you talking about?” and Boehner repeated his earlier statement. Boehner then reportedly bragged about the exchange to House Republicans. After a marathon two days on the Hill, both the Senate and the House passed a fiscal-cliff deal, although not without major concessions by Republicans—including allowing tax hikes on the wealthiest Americans. The president is expected to sign the deal on Wednesday.
