I heard a news story about this but didn’t understand clearly if it was an Extra $4 million or Billion dollars. In this time of Debt Crisis, which is it? Millions or Billions? Please give me a reference I can go look it up.
Despite hard times, Obama has increased UN spending……
President Barack Obama has been very good to the UN. The Heritage Foundation reported, вЂњU.S. contributions to the U.N. system reached a record level of $7.692 billion in fiscal year (FY) 2010вЂ”a staggering 21 percent increase over FY 2009. This is the third consecutive year in which U.S. contributions set new records.вЂќ
The U. S. State Department yesterday announced that the Obama Administration has agreed to contribute $4 billion to the United Nations Global Fund to fight AIDs, Tuberculosis, and Malaria from 2011 to 2013.
The $4 billion represents a 38% increase over the previous U.S. commitment to the fund.
I haven’t heard about any additional money for the U.N. The funding for the U.N. from the traditional amount of 6+ billion dollars I heard was being decreased in the next fiscal year. Maybe Obama still has some slush money left over from the 2011 budget he bamboozled Boehner over.
It is 4 billion and it is Americas contribution to the United nations. Every member Country has to make an Annual contribution.
4 billion dollars.of course he would have to take a huge pay cut
doesn’t matter we don’t have the money to spare.
throw the UN out they are evil.
