    why? do you think he should not save money? do you think others do not do this? do you order things off the internet to avoid sales tax?

    he lives in MA, is a Senator and is fucking rich enough to pay the taxes. Should he not want to pay taxes in his home state? After all Joe Biden says it's patriotic to want to pay more taxes.

    Two things.
    One. I hate John Kerry..........and all politicians for that matter.
    Two. Taxing a yacht is taxation without representation.

    And MA governor Coup De Ville Patrick should try to collect taxes from Kerry. After all he tried to sue New Hampshire businesses for sales tax from MA residents who bought tires in NH.

    Anyone who could afford to would do the same thing. However the average boat owner in MA, probably doesn't have the luxury of docking his boat in another state. It's just another example of how high taxes force people, businesses, and even yachts to move elsewhere.

    Kerry proposed legislation to combat tax shelters in foreign countries. But he has no problem doing it in another state. Friggin hypocrite.

    isn't obie wan going after tax evaders? tell him there is 500,000 dollars sitting in the water in RI. Fricking hypocrites want to sit around all day in their elititst suits and dream up ways to tax the American Citizen and then isn't willing to pay his fair share.
    Anyone who can own a four million dollar yacht can pay the friggin taxes for chrisssake.
