Key word=immediate. Hamot UPMC will fight to not pay its fair share in taxes while I get gouged paying over $4,500 for a 3,000 SF house. Right now Hamot only pays half of what they should. Of course, Gannon pays nothing.

It will be interesting to see what Drerie city council's John Evans will has to say since he worked at Hamot years ago and fought against paying property taxes and decent wages for the workers.

Not sure how asking an entity that makes NET patient revenue of $5.7 BILLION to pay its fair share can be considered telling someone how to run a business.

How would UPMC like it if it could only receive payment for 59% of its services?(41% of Erie properties are tax exempt.)
