Did Rubio Dock His “Luxury” Boat Out of State to Avoid Taxes Like John Kerry?

June 9, 2015

The latest New York Times hit piece on Marco Rubio reports that he spent $80,000 on a luxury speedboat.

Here’s a photo of Rubio’s “luxury” speedboat. It just drips with excess, doesn’t it?

Here’s a picture of John Kerry’s boat.

You may not know that Kerry docked his boat in Rhode Island to avoid paying Massachusetts taxes.

From Mass Live…

Sen. John Kerry docks new boat in Rhode Island, saving taxes

Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry is docking his family’s new $7 million yacht in neighboring Rhode Island, allowing him to avoid paying roughly $500,000 in taxes to the cash-strapped Bay State.

If the “Isabel” were kept at the 2008 Democratic presidential nominee’s summer vacation home on Nantucket, or in Boston Harbor near his city residence, he would be liable for $437,500 in one-time sales tax. He would also have to pay $70,000 in annual excise taxes.

Funny. I don’t recall reading about that in the New York Times.

    Maybe it’s because you have a lousy memory. Sure, that’s it.
