Vice President Kamala Harris said the stakes for the Build Back Better bill are too high to focus specifically on Sen. Joe Manchin’s recent opposition.
Harris appeared on CBS Evening News with Norah O’Donnell on Monday night and told correspondent Margaret Brennan that she does not feel betrayed by the Democratic senator announcing he will not vote for the legislation.
“I don't have any personal feelings about this. This is about 'Let's get the job done. Let's get it done,'” Harris said. “The stakes are so high. I refuse to get caught up in what might be personal politics.”
Harris was also asked about the omicron variant of COVID-19 and was pressed about whether the unvaccinated are to blame.

“I don’t think this is a moment to talk about fault. It is no one’s fault that this virus hit our shores or hit the world,” Harris said. “It is more about individual power and responsibility. And it’s about the decisions that everyone has the choice to make, no doubt.”
