Finally. There is a bill being started in the house to tie UN funding to reform:
One of the bill's most controversial proposals will be linking dues to the changes it spells out. The document stipulates that if the reforms are not carried out, Congress will withhold 50 percent of U.S. dues to the U.N. general budget, taking the money from programs it deems inefficient and wasteful."
50 percent is a start. I'm having a hard time figuring out what earthly good the UN has accomplished lately.

It's time to cut all funding for the U.N. Has there ever been a more corrupt organization? Even the mafia was usually loyal to each other, not so in the U.N. Their only loyalty extends to those that rape children and steal billions of dollars.

Actually to be fair to the UN. Some of their subsidiary agencies, the ones that specialize on humanitarian mission, perform well. I do not think anyone complain about UNICEF, WHO, or UNESCO.
