The text of the Build Back Better Act was released in late September and for the first time reveals how President Joe Biden's allies planned to spend a whopping $3.5 trillion.

Critics have already seized on one of its most controversial measures: An extra $79 billion for the Internal Revenue Service over the next decade to expand audits and strengthen enforcement.

There are also a number of welfare, social and climate provisions contained in the 2,465 page bill that have led to opposition from moderates in the Democratic party and Republicans. 

Democrats now realize that they will not get the package passed, unless it is below $3.5 trillion. The party now faces a war between its factions over what to include and what to leave out. 

Two free years of community college

The legislation provides two years of free community college for all students. The anticipated to cost $108 billion.

The bill would also add $80 billion in funding for Pell Grants for families with a total income of up to $50,000 which Democrats say hasn't kept pace with the increasing cost of college.

Climate change

The plan includes $3 billion for 'tree equity', $12 billion for electric cars, $1 billion more to turn government facilities into 'high-performance green buildings' and millions more for gender identity and bias training.

The legislation would also spend billions of dollars to tackle climate change, including President Biden's proposed 'Climate Change Corps.' It would get $7.5 billion for conservation work on public lands.

Government training 

Race and gender-based issues come with smaller spending, but will likely raise hackles among Republicans and moderate Democrats.

The bill includes $25 billion for non-profits to provide 'anti-discrimination and bias training' in health care.

Extended child tax credit

Democrats expanded the child tax credit for 2021 in their $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief plan, and now want to extend it through 2025.

Under the enhancement, families receive $3,600 per child under age 6, and $3,000 per child age 6 to 18. Most families receive monthly payments of either $250 or $300 per child.

The full expanded child tax credit is available to individuals making up to $75,000 or married couples making up to $150,000,
