Thanks to my dear sweet mother, I found out what the right thinks about Bernie's response: they're pissed that the old guy who has "never worked" is opening his trap, and that the important thing is that jobs are staying in Indiana.
But yeah, they would throw a fit. I know because when I read about Trump's antics, it sounds like the kind of stuff that Illinois does and Indiana blasts us for doing. Pence is allegedly all about making a business climate that doesn't require cutting deals, while Illinois wants businesses to negotiate a lower rate. That's why we have such a crappy business environment on paper, but the businesses that are here don't pay the official rates. We have some local factories that pay no state corporate taxes and no local property taxes.
The kicker was, the loan process was started under Bush's watch, but Obama got all the blame.
If Trump only lasts four years, gets replaced by a Democrat, then Carrier moves the rest of the jobs out of the country or it otherwise goes sour, the next guy (gal?) will get the blame.
