After the Build Back Better Act passes the U.S. House this morning, the White House posted a thread on its Twitter account listing some of what is in the bill. Here is that thread:

The House has now passed President Biden's Build Back Better Act – bringing us one step closer to President Biden’s desk for signing. Here's just some of what's in it.
