Anyone who was naïve enough to believe that the legalization of slots was about property tax “relief” is living on another planet.

A bill was introduced in the state House last week that totally ELIMINATES school property taxes fairly and fixes a broken education finance system: HB 1275, the School Property Tax Elimination Act of 2007. I have been tracking the progress of this bill since its first version four years ago and it is truly a bill that was written for the people, not for the special interests. It is endorsed statewide by twenty-five citizen taxpayer advocacy groups.

But it will not be enacted without a lot of noise from the taxpayers. Read about this legislation here: http://www.ptcc.us . While you’re there, be sure to try the personal Excel calculator that demonstrates what this plan will do for you. Then, tell everyone you know about this plan and call or write your legislator and DEMAND that this legislation be enacted.

We CAN make the government work for us if everyone is willing to help by voicing their opinion.

And Rendell doesn’t like it – that should be enough reason for us to support it!

Property owners were never intended to get relief directly. We enacted Act 72 to ensure that the school districts got the revenue generated by the casinos that could be passed on to the tax payers if the number hit $900 Million. Each school district in the state would get a portion. Once we realized it would only amount to $9.25 per district annually, we repealed Act 72. The casinos get to keep the money and use it to pay employees who no longer need the tax break since they now get a salary. Email me if you have any questions.

Big bucks for the Mofia, zilch for the property owners. Whenever they talk about casinos, slot machines or anything else related to gambling, you can rest assured that it is run by corrupt and crooked individuals who will promise you anything until they get in and once they do, after that it is all prosperity for them and poverty for the rest. I wouldn't spend a nickel at any of these places. I am already a winner just by keeping my money in my pocket. As Will Rogers said, "If you want to double your money, pull a $20 bill out of your wallet, fold it in half and put it back in again." That's the best way to double your money in my opinion.
You are SO RIGHT if the people who frequent the casino's would stay the heck out of them they would be ahead of the game with come on's such as free rooms, food, cash back,maybe even limosine pick up amasing what a crooked state & goverment and people feel for this??????????

crooks can come up with.

Wow when you read the list of other programs this property tax watershed supports BEFORE it is used for what we were sold a bill of goods for, it sounds like another program we are all familiar with....can anyone else say SOCIAL SECURITY? Our property tax reductions will probably end up in the same toilet as that other slush fund the government can't leave their greedy racketeering fingers off of.

And Godfather Lou's wife is running the hotel part and his daughter is overseeing the slots part. I saw her on TV. Not bad looking and handles herself very well.

Looks very capable of being a capo in Lou's gang. The daughter should smile a little bit. If she is single she'd scare the hell out of me if I could ever manage a date with her.

The Gotti's, The Kardashians and soon to come, the DeNaple's. Hurry up with this show before she starts looking like the former ones.

House bill 1275 will never pass thru the state legislature. Especially in the Pocono's, Scranton,and Wilkes Barre area where DeNaples rules his politicians like puppets on a string. The rest of the state is being run by the mob bosses and is filtering into the Bethlehem casino's and the politicians around Bethlehem . Cunningham and Callahan have already been briefed by these crooks and all they are told to do is sit back and take it easy. Someone else will do the dirty work for you to silence the Rendell critics.
