Republican critics of the President's plan say we can't depend on the government to create jobs. Lt. Governor Casey Cagle told us today the first federal stimulus didn't really work.

But he says many businesses are ready to hire.

Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle says, "The good side is that corporations are flushed with capital with some optimism and certainty out of Washington that they will really begin to put that capital to work and create the kind of expansion projects that we need."

Cagle says state leaders need to work to make Georgia more business friendly so that companies will want to locate here.
