Democrats in the House of Representatives passed Joe Biden’s $1.75 trillion ‘Build Back Better’ platform Friday morning, ending months of negotiations and inter-party fighting over the massive legislation.
The vote was 220-213 with Congressman Jared Golden, D-Maine, the only Democrat opposing the package.
The President hailed the passage within minutes.
“Above all, it puts us on the path to build our economy back better than before by rebuilding the backbone of America: working people and the middle class,” Biden said of the bill in a statement. “I thank Speaker Pelosi and the House leadership and every House member who worked so hard and voted to pass this bill.”
“For the second time in just two weeks, the House of Representatives has moved on critical and consequential pieces of my legislative agenda,” Biden continued. “Now, the Build Back Better Act goes to the United States Senate, where I look forward to it passing as soon as possible so I can sign it into law.”

“From bank surveillance to bailouts, this bill takes the problems President Biden and Democrats have already created and makes them much, much worse,” said House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy.

“I will proudly vote for the future, for fairness, and for justice, for turning America around, for finally passing a bill for the regular people of America and putting American on a new track,” Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn., said on the floor.

BIDEN on ???: ‘We’re Posed… It Can Be Done… To Light Up the Path, I’m Taking Too Much Time’
Former Vice President Joe Biden continued his gaffe-filled campaign from his Delaware basement this week; bizarrely admitting he’s “taking too much time” to get to the point.
“I believe this with every fiber of my being… We’re posed, what I’ve proposed, it can be done, I think we’re in a position to really make it happen!” said Biden.

BIDEN on ???: ‘Fast-Food Workers’ Forced to Sign ‘Non-Compete Agreements’ But They Don’t ‘Have Secrets’
Former Vice President Joe Biden continued his gaffe-filled campaign over the weekend; strangely asserting that fast-food workers are forced to sign “non-compete agreements” so they can’t earn “five more cents.”
“You had thousands of employees making an hourly wage having to sign non-compete agreements. So if you work at Burger King, you can’t go across town to McDonald’s to try and get five more cents. All designed to do nothing, just keep wages down, you could not go!” said Biden.
“It’s not like you have a secret, these are people making an hourly wage. Just doing their job. They were told they can’t even bargain!” he added.
