Oh Great – US Will Continue To Pay One Fifth Of UN Budget

The United Nations has almost 200 member nations, yet the United States pays more than one fifth of the group’s budget. This, even though the UN constantly works to undermine the US. Good grief.

Worse yet, our UN representative is quite pleased that we will continue to shoulder this burden for another three years.

In one of its last actions of the year, the United Nations General Assembly on Christmas Eve agreed to extend for another three years the formula that has U.S. taxpayers contributing more than one-fifth of the world body’s regular budget.

No member-state called for a recorded vote, and the resolution confirming the contributions that each country will make for the 2013-2015 period was summarily adopted. The assembly also approved a two-year U.N. budget of $5.4 billion.

The U.S. has accounted for 22 percent of the total regular budget every year since 2000, and will now continue to do so for the next three years.

The U.S. representative for U.N. management and reform, Joseph Torsella, expressed satisfaction that the U.S. contribution had not been raised above that level.

    We pay the most because we drive the globalist agenda.

    After discovering the Clinton administration plotting and executing the Rwanda genocide I once had hopes of inquiries and trials.

    HA! It’s much worse now…

    This outrage calls for an immediate online .gov petition. That’ll have ‘em quivering in their boots. Either that or a letter to the editor.

    This calls for a constitutional vote.

    Elect me in 2016. I won’t send those scumbags a dime. And I’ll tell the UN to get out of the U.S. as well. They can move to France. The French love to spend money they don’t have. Or maybe Greece. If there still is a Greece in 2016.
