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.

The Build Back Better Act lowers the costs of prescriptions drugs — so if you’re one of millions of Americans with diabetes, sometimes paying $1,000 a month for insulin — the cost is capped to $35 a month.

This bill will lower the cost of child care so working families don’t pay more than 7% of their income on care for their youngest children, which will help millions of parents get back to work.

The Build Back Better Act improves access to education by providing universal preschool for every 3-and 4-year old in America and increases Pell Grants for working families and apprenticeship programs for education beyond high school.

The Build Back Better Act will lower the costs of elder care, health care, and housing.

Taken together with the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, the Build Back Better Act is the most significant investment in our fight against the climate crisis ever.
