11 RINOs including Mitch McConnell voted with Dems to allow them to pass a short term debt increase bill.
Of course, Schumer ended up attacking Republicans anyway during his speech after it passed.
“Leader McConnell and Senate Republicans insisted they wanted a solution to the debt ceiling, but the Democrats must raise it alone by going through a drawn-out, convoluted, risky reconciliation process,” Schumer said while Manchin held his head in his hands.
“That was simply unacceptable to my caucus,” Schumer continued. “And yesterday, Senate Republicans finally realized their obstruction was not going to work.”
“I thank, very much thank, my Democratic colleagues, for showing our unity in solving this Republican-manufactured crisis,” he added.
“Despite immense opposition from Leader McConnell and members of his conference, our caucus held together and we pulled our country back from the cliff’s edge that Republicans tried to push us over,” he continued.
“This is a temporary but necessary and important fix,” Schumer said, as Manchin shook his head and mouthed some indecipherable words to someone in the room.
Dem Senator Joe Manchin showed his displeasure with the speech by being noticeably bothered by it and then walking out:

He then said it wasn’t appropriate:
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” pic.twitter.com/TsGDsMNAqK
