Henry Hyde is at it again. Hyde is pushing a bill through the House that would withhold US dues from the UN unless the UN reforms.
I consider this to be absolutely outrageous. The UN is a multinational organization that does not, and cannot, answer to one nation. UN reform is important, but it is equally important that such reform be accomplished through consensus between nations that make up the UN. It is apalling for one nation to dictate the outcome of the process.
If the bill is passed and US money is indeed withheld, I hope the UN will take away the US general assembly seat, as it threatened to do the last time Hyde pulled the same shenanigans during the Clinton years.
