Sen. Schumer blasted Republicans after the debt-ceiling reprieve. He was criticized for it — by Sen. Manchin.

Late Thursday, after the Senate passed a bill to raise the nation’s debt ceiling through early December, temporarily staving off a potential government shutdown and default, Senate Majority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) took to the Senate floor to praise the move — and to blast Republicans for what he described as a “risky drama.”

“Republicans played a dangerous and risky partisan game, and I am glad that their brinksmanship did not work,” Schumer added. “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.”

Schumer urged the Senate to adopt a long-term solution so that it would not have to go through the same situation every few months.

But Schumer’s speech also rubbed one fellow Democrat, Sen. Joe Manchin III (D-W.Va.), the wrong way.
