Vice President Kamala Harris said Sunday that America will cease to be the “role model” of the world if Congress fails to pass an elections bill that Republicans believe will have the net effect of loosening voting standards.

Since moderate Democratic senator Joe Manchin abandoned his support of President Biden’s hallmark Build Back Better package after citing objections to its enormous size and scope, leaving it all but dead in the water, Democrats have pivoted the agenda to the voting bill.

“We have been a role model saying, ‘You can see this and aspire to this and reject autocracies and autocratic leadership,’” Harris said in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation. “Right now, we’re about to take ourselves off the map as a role model if we let people destroy one of the most important pillars of a democracy, which is free and fair elections.”

She echoed Democratic lawmakers in elevating “voting rights” as an “urgent” issue that needs to be immediately addressed, now that Biden’s trillion-dollar social-spending plan has taken the back burner.
