The U.S. House of Representatives has passed the Democrats' massive $1.2 trillion spending bill, despite widespread concerns about its negative impact on the economy.

Democrat Joe Biden said America "took a monumental step forward" after the House passed the bill with a vote of 228 to 206 late on Friday night.

The vote is a substantial triumph for Biden's Democrats, who have bickered for months over the ambitious radical spending bills that make up the bulk of his domestic agenda. 

Six House Democrats, members of AOC's progressive "Squad" wing of the party, voted against the measure, while 13 Republicans voted with Democrats.

The bill had become one of two key pieces of Biden's agenda and it will now head to his desk for him to sign it into law.

The measure, which was passed by the Senate in August, is the largest infrastructure bill in history.

Several far-left Democrats voted no on the measure because they wanted assurances from Democrat leadership that they would be able to pass the far more ambitious $3.5 trillion spending bill.

Among those were Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), who reportedly said, "I'm a no. This is bulls***."

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA), and Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) also said they voted no on the bill.

"I cannot in good conscience support the infrastructure bill without voting on the President's transformative agenda first," said Omar in a statement.

Among those Republicans who voted for the bill was RINO Rep. Adam Kinzinger of Illinois, a vocal anti-Trump critic who announced his retirement after Democrats redistricted him out of his seat.

Biden released a statement about the spending bill in a late-night statement that included the ridiculed claim that the legislation would be fully paid for.

"The Build Back Better Act will be a once-in-a-generation investment in our people," said Biden in part.

"Generations from now, people will look back and know this is when America won the economic competition for the 21st Century," he added.

The massive spending will be touted as a great victory for Biden's political agenda.

It will also be considered a huge loss for the Republicans, who could have killed the bill had they stuck together against it.
