President Biden’s Build Back Better agenda cleared one major hurdle on Friday as the nearly $2 trillion spending bill passed the House.

Context: The bill passed with a slim margin of 220-213, setting up what is likely a contentious battle in the Senate.

The bill contains provisions to create a universal kindergarten, negotiation for lower drug prices, and climate initiatives.

In addition, it expands tax enforcement mechanisms for the Internal Revenue Service.

Why this is important: Democrats passed the spending bill quickly after passing the infrastructure bill.

However, the battle was long fought. Democrats have fought for months to get the bill passed in the house.
