U.S. deputy ambassador Joseph Torsella said the United States "is pleased."

Slash the UN budget by 25%/yr.
The UN supplies employment for corrupt third world bureaucrats. They pay them big bucks, enormous benefits..(like full college tuition at the best schools for their numerous kids) and then unlimited expense accounts no receipts required.
OldX, “like full college tuition at the best schools for their numerous kids) and then unlimited expense accounts no receipts required.”
The UN should be abolished
Maybe I'll try "approving" a 5% raise out of my employer in the coming year.
The UN needs to be defunded.
The U.S. should Refuse to make payment until the U.N. conducts an INDEPENDENT AUDIT !
Follow the money !
The U. N. has NEVER had an audit ~ we don’t know where the money is going !
The U.S. covers more than 25% of the U. N. budget - let others pay their “fair share”
No audit = no money !
That’s funny... looks like the Frankinfeinsteinian mandatory gun “buy-back” program and the “Dues to the UN” appear to be on the same line in the budget.
The UN General Assembly’ during the 2012 session, passed 26 resolutions condemning the actions of a particular country.
Syria, Iran, North Korea and Burma were condemned only once.
Israel was 22 times (85% of resolutions).
The General Assembly of the UN is interested in the “palestinians” in the precise extent that it allows it to condemn the State of Israel.
A pox on the UN house!
Defund the U.N.; kick them all out of the USA; close down the U N building; hand it to NYC.
Well-stated, Founding Father. UNaccountable bureaucrats are socialists. (Socialism Is Legal Plunder - Bastiat) DEFUND/DISMANTLE socialist collectives, foreign and domestic.
