Former Gov. Ed Rendell promised "substantial" property tax relief for beleaguered Pennsylvania homeowners when he signed the bill legalizing casino gambling in Pennsylvania.
Rendell promised a minimum of $1 billion going to Pennsylvania homeowners each year from casino revenues.
Now for the reality: Pa. homeowners will receive an average of $200 in property tax relief this year. Some homeowners will see as little as $50.
Not exactly what Rendell promised. Keep that in mind the next time a politician makes promises.
