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

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. 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, Indiana Rep. Marlin Stutzman says Democrats have focused on "making it easier to live without a job."
