Hey Kerry, you freeking Tax Welch? Massachusetts needs your damn tax money to pay for needy people on their universal State health care system.
Registering your brand new $7,000,000 yacht in Rhode Island instead of your own state of Massachusetts is TAX DODGING.
Go hang out at the bar with your fellow tax-dodging buddy, Charlie Rangel.
Fellow Massachusetts Voters, it is time for Kerry to go
VOTE THE TAX DODGER
OUT OF OFFICE!!!

Sen. John Kerry skips town on sails tax
By Gayle Fee and Laura Raposa
Friday, July 23, 2010
Sen. John Kerry, who has repeatedly voted to raise taxes while in Congress, dodged a whopping six-figure state tax bill on his new multimillion-dollar yacht by mooring her in Newport, R.I.
Isabel – Kerry’s luxe, 76-foot New Zealand-built Friendship sloop with an Edwardian-style, glossy varnished teak interior, two VIP main cabins and a pilothouse fitted with a wet bar and cold wine storage – was designed by Rhode Island boat designer Ted Fontaine.
But instead of berthing the vessel in Nantucket, where the senator summers with the missus, Teresa Heinz, Isabel’s hailing port is listed as “Newport” on her stern.
Cash-strapped Massachusetts still collects a 6.25 percent sales tax and an annual excise tax on yachts. Sources say Isabel sold for something in the neighborhood of $7 million, meaning Kerry saved approximately $437,500 in sales tax and an annual excise tax of about $70,000.
