Nice to know GA is generally a business-friendly state. Nice to see some high rankings in some areas, though I don't know much about their sources/measurements. Also, there is always room for improvement.

Quote:
Georgia placed third in two categories: Cost of Living and Transportation & Infrastructure.
The Peach State placed in the bottom half of the pack in Education (27), Economy (38) and Quality of Life (42).

OVER-taxed? (according to DarrellHarrison). If anything Georgians are UNDER-taxed. If you want to have educated children, mass transit and less congestion, adequate police and fire protection and health services you need to get the money from somewhere — and that is taxes. They are a necessary evil, but they are necessary.
Tax the rich. So they make $80 million instead of $90 million this year. Cry me a river. Help out small business by providing government health insurance so that the small business owners don’t go bankrupt trying to provide it to their employees.
I’m out of Georgia. Need a better job, a public transporation system that goes somewhere. Where am I going — to DC!!!
