Obama: 2014 Can Be Breakthrough Year For US

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Barack Obama says he believes that 2014 can be a breakthrough year for America.

In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama says the U.S. is primed to bring back jobs lost in the recession or to overseas competitors. But he says to make that happen, the U.S. must act to create good-paying jobs and increase economic opportunity.

Obama says he wants to work with Congress on jobs, infrastructure and immigration. But he says when Congress doesn't act, he'll act on his own. He's pointing to a new manufacturing innovation institute the government helped launch in North Carolina.

In the Republican address, Rep. Marlin Stutzman of Indiana says Democrats want to make it easier to be jobless. He says instead of unemployment, the U.S. should focus on employment.
