John Kerry’s Sails Tax Dodge on his $7 Million Yacht Wont Go Away


Massachusetts US Senator John Kerry, Taxes for Thee, not for Me.

The senior Senator from the Bay State is being question by Fox News Boston as to why he avoided paying taxes in Massachusetts on his $7 million yacht by docking it in Rhode Island where there is no Sails, sales tax on boats.

Kerry was heard to say following the interview, don’t they know who I am!


Hat Tip: Gateway Pundit

Kerry may still be on the hook for a half million dollars in excise taxes because he docked his yacht in Massachusetts less than six months after buying it.

The controversy came up following a report that Kerry moored the multi-million dollar yacht in Rhode Island , rather than the Bay State to save on sales tax.

A spokesman for the senator says Kerry never intended to evade taxes and kept the boat in Rhode Island for maintenance reasons.

Oh, of course the intent was never to evade the taxes. Listen to Kerry get all righteous when questioned about the sales tax on his $7 million boat. This coming from a man who says that evil business avoids taxes and expenses by taking jobs over seas. Hypocrite, what is the difference? Not only  did Kerry knowingly dock his boat in a state where he would have to pay no taxes to his home state of Massachusetts, he also had his boat built over seas taking jobs away from Americans.

I guess VP Joe Biden would not consider Senator Kerry patriotic.

Kerry wants rich people to pay more, except himself. Think about this folks, a Democrat who rails that rich people make too much money and should be taxed more is dodging his own tax burden by using a tax shelter. Kerry claims that he pays his fair share of taxes, really? If Kerry is going to tell others who make $250,000 a year to pay more taxes who could never afford a $7 million sailboat, then why isn’t he?

But it’s different for people like John Kerry and Democrats of wealth. They tell you what to do with your money, not their own.

      John Kerry has proven himself to be a lier even before he conned the people of Mas.into electing him a senator. Remember his lies to congress regarding the “swift boat” story in Vietnam.

      He will leave the yacht in Rhode Island until the controversy dies and then quietly move it home.

      No taxes will be paid if he waits long enough.

      Massachusetts US Senator John Kerry thinks he is the senator of Rhode Island. A FAKE, CROOK, who should be thrown out of office. Kerry spend his tax payers salary. Seven million dollars buying a yacht made in Australia.

      “A spokesman for the senator says Kerry never intended to evade taxes and kept the boat in Rhode Island for maintenance reasons.”

      That is one big John Kerry BOATLOAD of BS.

      He better pay. Teresa can afford to bail her Husband’s arse out no problem-o. $437k is a drop in the hat for them. Kerry is another hypocritical lying, elitist, corrupt, Millionare Politician. Sorry, but the majority of them all suck.

      Swift boat, don’t pay my taxes boat—do us all a favor and take the NEXT Boat out of Boston Harbor and don’t come back, John Kerry. Why do the Idiots in Massachusetts keep voting you in is what I want to know???

      Can we say TERM LIMITS, anyone? =(

      he’s gonna give free ketchup to all his obama supporters as reparation.

      or is that: Ketch Me F-U can.

      maybe that’s a better name for this vessel.

      should be the name of this oversized boat ~ aFLOAT

      ~ $$$ Tax Evasion in tow ~
      (the name of his dingy)…

      NG ~ term limits! great idea… no pay taxes, out of office, for good. He got a little pissed off when questioned if he was going to pay the taxes…just a days in interest on Theresa’s big bucks… no big deal. Then, maybe Mass would not have to be looking for slots at the racetracks to get more bucks outta folks visiting Boston, eh?

      name the Kerry Yacht contest…


      Ketch – Me – F.U. – Can


      $Tax Evasion$

      #6 & 7- Kitty– hahah Good one, love the name contest. Ketch-Me-FU Can takes it!

      =)~ Thanks for the smiles. Even in Mass we can laugh at some of the MORONS running this State. Sad thing is, we live here.

      If you cut the majority of citizens in this State, they would all bleed bright blue. It has changed so much here since I was a kid growing up in the early 70′s …


    9. NGBoston on July 30th, 2010 1:36 am

      Kitty- Well, you used to live here anyway- IIRC, you had the good common sense to relocate.

      There are so many things I love about it here, New England is wonderful as a whole. However- they don’t call it Taxachusetts for nothing….sooooooo expensive—out of control. Massholes also need to get off of our streets—their road rage is incredible. 2 things that really annoy me about this State—the high cost of living/taxes and the damn drivers…….some of the worst * most aggressive in the Country besides NYC Cabbies, that is.

      Night All

    11. kitty on July 30th, 2010 8:40 pm

      Super Dave… and NG… you both are a riot!

      illegals… now, now… PC ~ “UNdocumented citizens”

      Yacht name: “bath tub”
      Dingy: A$$-haul

      NG would like that Dingy name… kind of goes with Massholes… and NG, sad but true… still here in Taxachusetts! It’s OUT OF CONTROL!

      Has the lying dishonest John Kerry ever paid the huge taxes due on his $7 million dollar yacht?

      King odumbo hates rich people and despises richies that don’t pay their taxes so he can then give the money away to buy votes.
