Dems take victory lap on Biden's spending plan as Pelosi downplays looming Senate changes
Biden spending bill unpopular among swing states voters: Kaylee McGhee White
Kaylee McGhee White of the Washington Examiner weighs in on the House passing Biden’s spending bill and whether or not most Americans support it.
House Democrats on Friday celebrated the passage of a sweeping $1.75 trillion tax and spending plan that makes up the bulk of President Biden's economic agenda, billing the measure as "transformational," even as it faces an uphill battle – and looming changes – in the Senate.
The bill is "monumental, it's historic, it's transformative, it's bigger than anything we've ever done," House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said during a press conference shortly after the bill's passage, 220 to 213, on Friday morning. She was accompanied by six fellow House Democrats, including Rep. Richard Neal, chair of the tax-writing Ways and Means Committee.

But the legislation still has a difficult road ahead in the 50-50 Senate, where Democratic leaders must ensure that every member of the caucus votes in lockstep.
