"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?"

Now that the folks in DC have given themselves a raise, made sure all of our taxes go up and done nothing to trim any kind of bloated federal spending, I think Boehner's comment could be directed at everyone in DC.

"...Obama said after the House voted. "The deficit needs to be reduced in a way that is balanced. Everyone pays their fair share. Everyone does their part. That is how our economy works best. That is how we grow."... Oh, and tax the rich. How disingenuous.

Very funny and appropriate! Maybe this will stir some of the self important, do nothing folks in Washington to actually do something. Let's start some serious spending cuts so that everyone feels the pain. That is how we will chip away at the deficit.

Typical classless Republican politician. Just like his forefathers John McCain & Dick Cheney, he lets the GFY phrase rip because he can't come up with an intelligent thought.
