Cut funding to the UN

From Council For Citizens Against Government Waste:

We just got word that as part of next year's spending plan Congress will continue pouring your tax money into the United Nations.

Please sign the National Petition ordering Congress to slash U.S. funding of this wasteful, bloated, anti-American bureaucracy. Washington's politicians need to hear from you right now.

The Council for Citizens Against Government Waste has been battling out-of-control spending and taxes since 1984. But nothing gets on our nerves more than the federal government wasting billions and billions of our tax dollars to prop up the UN.

This den of bureaucrats, crooks, dictators, and thieves doesn't deserve a single penny of your hard-earned money.

And yet, every year the politicians give in and fork over more and more American tax dollars.

Please sign our National Petition to Congress. Once again, Congress is going to send a giant check to the UN so that it can continue to bash America and undermine our interests.

We need to take a stand!

Just click here to sign. And then, forward this e-mail to everyone you know who is sick and tired of subsidizing this bloated and corrupt organization!

Right now Americans are paying $1.2 BILLION per year in DUES to the UN. We also pay $2.2 BILLION, or 28 percent, of the UN peacekeeping budget. Then there are the "voluntary payments" for special UN programs and funds. In one recent year, we gave the UN a record total of $7.7 BILLION.

America's taxpayers pay 25 percent of all UN expenses! And this is at a time when our own government is running a deficit of more than half a trillion dollars!

This nonsense must stop. Please sign your Petition now.

Here is what your money is paying for:

•The UN is planning to construct yet another spectacular building in New York at a cost of as much as $2 billion.

•Former UN Secretary General Boutros Boutros-Ghali has admitted that "perhaps half of the UN workforce does nothing useful."

•The anti-American Marxist dictatorship in Venezuela is about to get a seat on the UN Security Council so it can join Russia and China in voting against the U.S.

•Third World dictators routinely fly to UN headquarters in New York to attack our great country and undermine our national interests.

•And UN-funded "peacekeeper" troops have abused the people they are supposed to be protecting and created a deadly and costly cholera epidemic in Haiti!

Congress must slash funding for the UN. American taxpayers should not be paying for this waste and abuse.

Sign your Petition right now. This is really important.

Congress needs to get an earful from the American people on this issue. Especially right now as our government continues to run massive deficits and the Obama Administration is cutting our own defense budget. Just click here.

And please, please ask everyone you know to sign this National Petition as well.

If we don't stand up now, Congress will continue funding the UN year after year.

That's how things work in Washington. And it's got to stop.

Sign your petition Tell the politicians to slash funding for the UN.

Thank you for all of your help.

Sincerely,

Thomas A. Schatz
President
Council for Citizens Against Government Waste
