Helen hit the nail on the head. Might does not make right. What's right is that UPMC be held to the same standards as ALL the taxpayers of the City. I am going to bet that once gain, UPMC is going to come out ahead and the City of Pittsburgh and its taxpayers are going to get the short end of the stick. UPMC came out ahead with the Pittsburgh Promise as well-it was a quid pro quo where UPMC agreed to fund this program in lieu of being spared property and payroll taxes. However, if one adds up all the taxes the City lost with this agreement, and what UPMC has paid into it, UPMC clearly has benefited, while the City has not.
