13. Directly created jobs
The numbers appear to be those for directly created jobs. There will actually be more jobs created due to the needs of the programs enacted and as a result of people having more money to spend.
More may be needed, but it's probably a better idea to introduce multiple bills rather than one mammoth bill. A single bill means the Republicans can make their usual claims (evil socialism, spending too much, etc.) which will be gladly echoed by the "liberal" media. Then, they knock one bill down and they're done. Introduce multiple bills and they'll have a harder time arguing against all of them, as each one costs much less. They'll also have to kill each one separately. The Republicans will then be on record as killing many jobs bills rather than just a single expensive one. This can be presented to the public as a pattern of Republicans voting against jobs.
