Tell Congress to Slash UN Funding

Tell Congress to Slash US Funding to the United Nations

Our politicians continue to pour our tax money into the United Nations. When will they learn that the American people are sick and tired of throwing billions of dollars into this black hole of waste, fraud, and abuse?!

If you are from Kentucky, please click on the link to send a message to Congress to slash U.S. funding for this wasteful, bloated, anti-American bureaucracy call the United Nations. Washington needs to hear from you right now.

If you are not from KY, call 1-202-224-3121, the US Capitol Switchboard and ask to be connected to your Congressman and then leave your message.

Double your efforts by Signing the Petition from Citizens Against Government Waste to tell Congress to slash U.S. funding for the UN!

With Donald Trump in the White House, we have an unprecedented opportunity to drastically slash U.S. funding of the bloated and wasteful United Nations. Last year the Trump Administration negotiated a $600 million reduction in the UN's 2017 peacekeeping budget and a $285 million reduction in the UN's 2018-2019 operating budget. This was a much-needed down payment toward reducing our UN funding.

But to make significant cuts to the estimated $10 BILLION that the U.S. spends on the UN each year, we need to tell our lawmakers that this is a top priority for American taxpayers.

The estimated $10 BILLION Americans pay to the UN each year includes our massive annual dues payment, plus 29 percent of the UN's peacekeeping budget, as well as "voluntary payments" for special UN programs and funds.

American taxpayers pay as much as 25 percent of all UN expenses. In fact, we pay more than all of the other permanent members of the Security Council COMBINED!

And what do we get for the billions of dollars that we send to the UN? Here are just a few examples of what your money is paying for:

  • The UN's World Health Organization routinely has spent about $200 million a year on travel expenses - more than what it doles out to fight some of the biggest problems in public health, including AIDS, hepatitis, tuberculosis, and malaria combined;
  • Former UN Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali has admitted that "perhaps half of the UN workforce does nothing useful."
  • Third World dictators routinely fly to UN headquarters in New York to attack our great country and undermine our national interests; and,
  • UN-funded "peacekeeping" troops have abused the people they are supposed to be protecting and created a deadly and costly cholera epidemic in Haiti that has killed 9,000 so far and sickened 800,000.
Adding insult to injury, the UN sent a five-page memo to the Trump Administration warning that the repeal of Obamacare would put the U.S. "at odds with its international obligations" and could violate "the right to social security of the people in the United States."
American taxpayers should not be paying for this hypocrisy, waste, and abuse.

If we don't stand up now, Congress will continue wasting our tax dollars on the UN year after year.
