President Obama's State of the Union speech has people talking, including the business owners of Downtown Albany.

They are concerned about issues that affect the small business community, such as staff and payroll taxes, unemployment rates, manufacturing rates in Southwest Georgia.

Jason Warren, co-owner of Our Daily Bread says "if you're a Republican or Democrat, I think what a lot of people would love to see is less stuff on the bottom side of it made in China."

Owner of Verge, Jessica Blair, weighs in that "if you have made yourself successful and sacrificed to get there, you should have more opportunities, even more monetary success than somebody that is not willing."
