    A key House Republican is quickly pressing forward with her goals to scale back U.S. funding for the United Nations.

    Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen (R-Fla.), chairwoman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, told The Hill that oversight would be a key function of the panel, particularly funding to the U.N. Human Rights Council (HRC) that is "a waste of taxpayer dollars.

    "I'd like to make sure that we once and for all kill all U.S. funding for that beast," she said last month. "Because I don't think that it advances U.S. interests, I don't think that that's a pro-democracy group, it's a rogue's gallery, pariah states, they belong there because they don't want to be sanctioned."

    Get rid of this corrupt outfit in totality. World Bank should be next. Hundreds of millions saved rather that pissed down the drain.

    I still don't like Ros-Leitnen, but... good on her.

    Context doesn't matter to this liberal it seems/ as long as it satisfies his godless dreams/ like monkeys throwing sh!t as castles in air/ as long as he throws/that is the extent of his care.

    Good news, working in the right direction, however, it doesn't go far enough. Cut all money off to this cesspool, give em' 90 days to vacate US land.
