According to Politico, Boehner delivered a sharp response to Reid that including the F-bomb.
The top House Republican reportedly told the top Senate Democrat, “Go f— yourself.”
“What are you talking about?” Reid replied, at the White House.
“Go f— yourself,” Boehner repeated.
Here's what Reid said earlier that has the GOP leader furious.
"The American people I don't think understand the House of Representatives is operating without the House of Representatives."
"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."
"If the 250 were brought up, it would pass overwhelmingly," Reid said, referring to the cut-off for income tax cuts. He also noted that Democrats in the House and enough Republicans would vote for it.
"What goes on in this country shouldn't be decided by 'the majority,' it should be decided by the whole House of Representatives."
Reid was calling for an up or down vote on an earlier fiscal cliff proposal.
