Should We Defund The United Nations?

Rep. Mark Meadows (R-NC) is insisting that the United States defund United Nations (U.N.) for it’s anti-Israel and anti-American bias which has been promoted at the recent Christian United for Israel (CUFI) summit.

“We continue to send money to the U.N. for countries who are anti-American and anti-Israel — it’s got to stop,” Meadows stated

“Don’t you think it’s about time that it stops?” Meadows said. “It’s about time.”

Data from the Brookings Institution shows that the U.S. is the U.N.’s largest funder:

In absolute terms, the U.S. is the largest overall funder at $14.1 billion per year, providing 22 percent of the sample’s resources. The U.K. is the second-largest funder at $7.6 billion (12 percent) followed by Japan at $5.4 billion (9 percent) and Germany at $4.4 billion (7 percent). These four countries contribute approximately 50 percent of the total funding
