New History Headlines: November 15th - 21st
Pelosi The Power-House Speaker
The House passed Joe Biden's Build Back Better plan by a 220-213 vote, with no Republicans joining. The bill must now go to the Senate for final passage before the president can sign it into law which he is expected to do so next month.
In her “Dear Colleague" letter, Speaker Pelosi writes:
"Honoring President Biden’s vision and addressing the needs of the American people, this legislation presents the most historic and transformative agenda in a century."
Passing President Biden's transformational Build Back Better bill in the House marks the crowning achievement of a long career for the first Californian and female Representative to become House Speaker.
