You call this property tax relief?

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.
