(CNSNews.com) - In his weekly address released on Saturday, President Barack Obama said that in the remaining two years of his presidency he plans to work with Congress but will take unilateral action when he believes he needs to do so.

“I’ll act on my own when it’s necessary,” Obama said.

“And we now have the chance to reverse the decades-long erosion of middle-class jobs and incomes,” Obama said in his address. “We just have to invest in the things that we know will secure even faster growth in higher-paying jobs for more Americans. We have to make sure our economy, our justice system, and our government work not only for a few, but for all of us.  And I look forward to working together with the new Congress next year on these priorities.

“Sure, we’ll disagree on some things,” Obama said. “We’ll have to compromise on others. I’ll act on my own when it’s necessary. But I will never stop trying to make life better for people like you.

“Because thanks to your efforts, a new foundation is laid,” said Obama. “A new future is ready to be written.  We have set the stage for a new American moment, and I’m going to spend every minute of my last two years making sure we seize it.”
