"Mixing politically moderate proposals with a punchy tone, President Obama challenged lawmakers on Thursday to 'pass this jobs bill' -- a blunt call on Congress to enact his $447 billion package of tax cuts and new government spending designed to revive a stalling economy as well as his own political standing. ... Though Mr. Obama’s proposals -- including an expansion of a cut in payroll taxes and new spending on public works -- were widely expected, the package was substantially larger than predicted, and much of the money would flow into the economic bloodstream in 2012."
