The Right Kind of Cutback

From CNS News, some good news:

In a vote of 221-184, the House Friday approved a measure designed to withhold half of U.S. dues to the United Nations unless the world body changes the way it operates.

The bill, proposed by Rep. Jeff Fortenberry (R-Neb.), would allow the U.S. to pressure the U.N. to crack down on members that engage in acts like genocide or crimes against humanity, for example, by threatening that country's U.N. membership and impose arms and trade embargoes

If things don't change, we ought to kick them out of New York.

(H/T to A Certain Slant of Light for the heads up.)
