House votes on President Biden's $1.85 trillion Build Back Better bill

The US House votes on President Joe Biden's $1.85 trillion plan to boost social and education programs, as well as protect against global warming. Democrats brushed aside months-long divisions and approached House passage of the bill Friday, as Biden and his party neared a defining win in their drive to use their control of government to funnel its resources toward their domestic priorities. Final passage, which had been expected Thursday, was delayed as Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., held it up with an hours-long broadside criticizing Biden, Democrats and the bill. Most Democrats abandoned the chamber after midnight with McCarthy still talking, and House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer, D-Md., told reporters that leaders planned for passage later Friday.
