So I guess when my withholding cover by tax burden that I don't pay taxes either?

The income tax owed is paid.

The professor's agreements are part of their compensation package.

You are a liberalloon. No freedom of choice. To have a job one must belong to a union and pay dues to support candidates he may not support. What happened to freedom of choice? You are afucking hypocrite, no freedom of choice if it is not in accord with your views.

Union dues cab not be used as political donations without approval.

Stupidest comment I've ever seen on Topix. Tax withholding is YOUR money, dumbass. Universities that are paying their President's taxes FOR them are for the most part using taxpayer/donor money.

You must have lost part of your cerebellum in a battle of wits (in which you were utterly defenseless)....

Hi DaVeeee!
what were you saying about 80 percent of Americans who have stock portfolios make $250K a year?
"...Of the $123.6 billion in qualified dividends reported to the government for 2009, about 52 percent was received by those making more than $250,000 for the year..."
http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-12-10/rich...
how many days of the government would the ENTIRE years worth of dividends support Daveeeeee?
I never said 80% of Americans who own stock make over 250k

If you weren't such a lying asshole you would know I said over 80% of the dividend taxes do not come from the middle class.(note not the $250K number)

It is sad you are too f*cking stupid to know the difference.

Why are you right whiners so GD stupid?

The sad part is you morons think you're smart or clever. You are not.

Nothing in those laws relates to collective bargaining. So he’s either grossly misinformed or lying his ass off."
Oh please. The purpose is to weaken the union.

No union - no collective bargaining.

The Republican dream.

Workers forced to work for little so CEOs & Stock holders can make millions more.

Redistribution of wealth at its worst.

You are the misinformed. As usual.

Which government cuts are we talking about? Are we talking about cutting military spending? What about agriculture spending? Or what about cutting cooperate welfare or oil subsidies?

60% also support higher tax cuts for the rich.

68% oppose raising age of medicare

Oppose cutting social security.

53% support same-sex marriage equality

Oppose war with Iran.

Along with a bunch of other stuff. and yet Republicans keep pushing for stuff the American people are fundamentally opposed to.

If withholding is mine, how come I never have it unless I get a refund?

Your company sends it to the IRS, right?

Are you really this obtuse? Your personal withholding is coming out of your gross income. In the case of the university professors cited, taxpayer/donor money pays their withholding FOR them.

Seriously you dont drive an automobile on public roads, do you? I agree with Electron; you need a special uniform so people can see you comng in advance. I recommend a bright orange wig with a giant red plastic nose (like bozo). Just make sure you tuck in that tiny elephant trunk of yours before the kids show up to the big top...

that way they don't need the kind, compassionate, and HIGHLY ETHICAL government to take it from someone...

what on earth is wrong with you...
