This is what all those unemployed, underemployed, and precariously employed people in the Rust Belt and coal states were told. Now we all just have to be patient for the better jobs, higher incomes, better health insurance, improved roads and schools to materialize. Republican Nirvana almost achieved! Just have to put those troublesome gays, liberals, non-white, and smarty-pants coastal elites in their place.
