Posted on 09/08/2017 9:36:26 AM PDT by Oldeconomybuyer
The U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee passed a spending bill on Thursday evening that includes $10 million to help fund the United Nations climate change body that oversees the Paris Climate Agreement, despite President Donald Trumps decision to stop funding it.
The amendment passed 16-14. Republican Senators Susan Collins of Maine and Lamar Alexander of Tennessee voted in favor, as did all committee Democrats except for West Virginias Joe Manchin.
The 30-member Senate panel, which allocates federal funds to various government agencies and organizations, approved a $51 billion spending bill for the State Department and foreign operations, which included an amendment to continue funding the U.N. Framework Convention on Climate Change as well as the scientific body the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.

So they can’t find money for The Wall... but fine money for this global warming bullshit?
A pox on all of them.
but fine money...
make that “find” money.
Kill it. Trump should say No. Veto any bill giving funding for AGW propagandizing. If Ivanka wants it, let her pay for it out of her own pocket. Do not spend our tax money on this.
Any and every chance to stick it to DJT.
What about Hurricane Harvey and Irma?....America First...
"The U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee passed a spending bill on Thursday evening..."......that just made some foreigners very wealthy....
I want these twits out of office - yesterday.
Our government is completely out of control and no
Longer a REPRESENTATIVE REPUBLIC
Time for a new political party.
Congress controls the purse strings per the constitution
He needs to not only kill it, but explain, in very simple and concise sentences, precisely why he is killing it.
The only thing worse than a demonrat is a RINO.
A panel does not a Senate make. We need to repeal and replace Congress.
So they cant find money for The Wall... but fine money for this global warming bullshit?
They can make some crooked cash from the GW BS.
President Trump should rescind Congress’ Obamacare exemption.
That detestable POS is running scared, so he's pretending not to be an 0bamorrhoid leftist.
PATRICK MORISEY for US Senate!
Not a penny for the international socialism scum!
Well said. I concur.
One of the vilest things congress does, is tack on horrible items onto bills that are otherwise good and necessary. Line item vetoing would help a lot, here.
