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:
