One Reason Our Country is BROKE

What do our tax dollars pay for? – HUMAN EVENTS:

“$2,932,620,000 for the United Nations

The U.S. stands as the most generous nation contributing to the UN. The UN regular budget for 2008-2009 is $4,171,000,000, of which the US pays 22%, or $917,620,000. The key is the regular budget does not include “peacekeeping operations.” The UN is currently embroiled in 15 peacekeeping operations, costing $7,750,000,000. The U.S. contributes 26% of the peacekeeping budget, or $2,015,000,000.

No sum is too large to support the UN’s phenomenal progress in places like Darfur and Palestine.”
