Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) suggested there was a path forward to vote on the debt ceiling and avoid what would be the nation’s first ever default, NBC News reports.
Said Manchin: “I understand there was an agreement from the Republicans to do a very quick reconciliation by itself for the debt ceiling only.”
He added: “I think that’s our responsibility, to make sure that we take care of the debt ceiling. Democrats are now in control, so we want to make sure we do it and do it right. That pathway has been given. I don’t know what’s going to be done, but that pathway has been given.”Save to Favorites
