Perry- Thousands of average Georgians were out spending money in Perry. The annual Georgia National Rodeo has a big economic impact on the state, and some of the people there were talking about the President's economic plan.

The rodeo wasn't the only thing on many people's minds, one sign at the rodeo urged Governor Perdue not to raise taxes. Perdue's proposed state tax increase proposal comes at the same time President Bush is pushing multi-billion dollar tax cut.

Some say while they like keeping money in their pockets, they are worried about the poor and the elderly.

Paula McQuaig says, "My mother depends on my husband and me, and if services like Medicare and Medicaid are cut, I don't know what she would do."

As the possibility of war increases, Vietnam veteran, Charles Padgett, is worried the U.S. won't have enough money to make it through a war.

Charles Padgett says, "I'm worried about everything going on overseas, if we continue with these tax cuts, we may not have enough to make it through a war."

Others say Bush's tax cut is a step in the right direction.

Freddie Sandifer says, "I think any tax cut is good. Maybe, then, people will spend more, which will help the economy."

While Bush's plan continues to receive mixed reviews, many South Georgians say they just hope his plan will improve the country's financial outlook.

Bush's Tax package would increase personal tax cuts approved in 2001 and eliminate dividend taxes.
