GOP Takes Aim At the UN

This is the lead story at the Drudge Report, the charge is being lead by Ileana Ros-Leihtenin.. As the chairwoman of the House Ways and Means committee, she has proposed a voluntary 'contribution' to The UN (as opposed to the mandatory 27% required by the UN under the present mandate), against Congress' present position of manditorily throwing 22% in the 'kitty'. for more:

Thank you for mentioning Bloomberg because Drudge Reports refreshing engine makes it impossible to get on dial up.

The USA conceived the UN and it's Agenda for the Twentyfirst century: Sustainable Development. Maybe the elite have decided that there's a better way to eliminate 7 billion people and counting in the name of "saving the planet".

Thank you!

I posted the link to Bloomberg just now, that is the direct story link, and Drudge just changed the lead.

One must

wonder what this section is all about:
"...The legislation would also limit the use of U.S. contributions to only the specific purposes outlined by Congress and would withhold U.S. funding for any UN agency that upgrades the status of the Palestinian observer mission or any agency that helps Palestinian refugees..."

It seems "we" send a lot of money the UN's way:
"...The U.S. pays 22 percent of the UN’s regular operations budget and is assessed 27 percent of the peacekeeping budget. The U.S. payments totaled $3.35 billion in 2010, of which $2.67 billion was dedicated to the 16 peacekeeping operations worldwide, from South Sudan to Haiti..."

Peacekeeping???? That's not the label I'd give it.
I agree with Ron Paul -- the USA needs to get out of the UN!
