Fiscal cliff negotiations between House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) reportedly got hot and nasty last Friday.
According to Politico, several sources claimed to have overheard a verbal altercation between the two men in the White House lobby.
"The American people I don't think understand the House of Representatives is operating without the House of Representatives," Reid said. "It's being operated by a dictatorship of the speaker, not allowing the vast majority of the House of Representatives to get what they want."
This apparently got John Boeher's juices flowing.
Boehner reportedly pointed at Reid and said, "Lets go f**k."
"What are you talking about?" Reid asked.
And Boehner again said, "Lets go f**k."
The encounter occurred soon after Reid took to the Senate floor and argued that Boehner could have ended the fiscal cliff standoff by bringing up legislation passed by the Senate for a vote.
The Senate passed the bill at 2 a.m. and the House followed suit 20 hours later.
