Democrats cheer after passing the "Build Back Better Act" 220-213 on the House Floor, Nov. 19, 2021, at the Capitol in Washington, D.C.

After months of wrangling, House Democrats managed a big win Friday, passing their roughly $1.75 trillion social and climate spending package despite a Republican effort to delay the final vote.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, wearing white, announced the passage of President Joe Biden's "Build Back Better Act," with the vote falling largely along party lines at 220-213.

As the count crossed the threshold to pass, Democrats on the floor applauded and chanted "Build Back Better!" and "Nancy! Nancy!"
