Manchin Rips Schumer for Attacking GOP Lawmakers

Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) criticized Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), for shaming Republicans after the Senate passed legislation to increase the nation’s debt ceiling until early December.

Schumer made his remarks in a speech delivered to the Senate floor on Thursday.

“Republicans played a dangerous and risky partisan game, and I am glad that their brinksmanship did not work,” Schumer said, according to multiple news outlets.

“For the good of America’s families, for the good of our economy, Republicans must recognize in the future that they should approach fixing the debt limit in a bipartisan way,” The Washington Post quoted Schumer.

“The solution is for Republicans to either join us in raising the debt limit, or stay out of the way and let Democrats address the debt limit ourselves,” Schumer said. “Those are the two choices. And it’s very simple.

“(Senate Minority) Leader (Mitch) McConnell and Senate Republicans insisted they wanted a solution to the debt ceiling — but said Democrats must raise it alone by going through a drawn out, convoluted, and risky reconciliation process,” Schumer added, according to the New York Post.

According to the New York Post, Manchin could be seen covering his face in his hands while Schumer spoke at one point.

As he was leaving the Capitol, Manchin said to CNN’s Manu Raju that he didn’t think Schumer’s speech was appropriate.

Raju tweeted: “Manchin tells us he didn’t like Schumer’s speech after the vote to break a filibuster on the debt ceiling. ‘I didn’t think it was appropriate at this time,’ he said, arguing that ‘we need to de-weaponize’ and stop ‘playing politics … That was not a way to take (frustration) out.'”

Manchin stated that “Civility is gone” during a brief interview with CNN.
