WASHINGTON - Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell says the United States will overcome war, recession and double-digit unemployment.

“The new year always brings with it renewed hope and a spirit of optimism - qualities that have exemplified our nation and its people from the very start,” said McConnell, R-Ky.
He drew a historical parallel, citing the colonial army of 230 years ago winning a great military victory amid the exhaustion of a war in which the colonists were facing impossible odds against the British.
“Powerful forces may be aligned against us … but when the challenges are greatest, Americans always join ranks,” the senator said.
