Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin sided with Senate Republicans in strongly disapproving of a fiery, partisan speech by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer on Thursday night before a vote to raise the debt ceiling by $480 billion. Manchin reportedly told Schumer his speech was “fucking stupid,” while Republican Sen. Mitt Romney of Utah said it was a “time to be graceful” after 11 Senate Republicans had voted to break a GOP filibuster and allow the vote to take place.
