John Kerry is getting heat for parking his
wife’s $7 Million yacht in Rhode Island to save half a million dollars in boat taxes that Massachusetts would levy if he berthed it there. OK, Kerry is fond of sticking us with high taxes whenever he can and this makes him a hypocrite. But I say he is doing the right thing by denying Massachusetts the tax revenue. That is what federalism is about. States compete for residents and business. Let Massachusetts lower its taxes and compete with Rhode Island.
Besides, its about time Rhode Island regained it historical claim to be a place where lovers of liberty can escape the oppression of Puritans and tax collectors from Massachusetts. Roger Williams is honored.
