Senator Chuck Schumer called out Republicans on the Senate floor. Our favorite DINO was upset that Schumer went to the floor with the truth.
Schumer slams Republican debt ceiling antics
After Republicans acquiesced to a cloture vote, Majority Leader Senator Chuck Schumer went to the floor and lit into the Republicans.
"On Monday morning, I said we needed to pass a bill to address the debt limit by the end of the week, and that is exactly what we did," Chuck Schumer said. "Republicans played a dangerous and risky partisan game, and I am glad that their brinksmanship did not work 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. What is needed now is a long-term solution, so we don't go through this risky drama every few months, and we hope Republicans will join in enacting a long-term solution to the debt limit in December."
"I thank very much thank my Democratic colleagues for our showing our unity in solving this Republican manufactured crisis despite immense opposition from Leader McConnell and members of his conference," Schumer said. "Our caucus held together, and we've pulled our country back from the cliff's edge that Republicans tried to push us over."
Joe Manchin was none too happy. He claimed that Schumer's response was uncalled for. This was after Republicans put the world's economy in peril.
