First of all $1. a day in some place of the world is enough to live on, we have people in America hungry and more every day. Charity starts at home. If we can take care of ourselves then go out. Americans are the most generous people in the world and we do not need a law taking our money to give to others. Let us do this on our own.
NO, vote NO to this.

Let Nancy save the planet, by herself. Congress is elected to serve the American people. This bill is above BHO’s pay scale. Put it to a vote of the people, so congress can see what mainstream American’s think of how congress spends our money. Perhaps if more people are aware of what they are up to they would get voted out.

Short and simple! We have enough governmental financial issues in our country now. With our homeowners being foreclosed on, corporations moving to the countries this bill is going to give money to; should I keep going? Let’s fix our financial, business and job status in this country FIRST. We don’t need to dabble in other countries economies any more than we already are. This bill/law will just muck things up more and make us go further into a financial abyss.

Absolutely not! This is nothing more than trickery by appealing to our compassion which sadly works with those folks who don’t take the time to learn the facts. So we want to put our hard-earned tax money into the hands of the pathetically inefficient UN to do with it as they please?? I don’t think so. Wake up America, before it’s too late.

Russia went to free enterprise and now we are reversing our politics to socialism, Thanks to our democrats. We will not support the rest of the world. Its time to recall the cockroaches. We are being left out of the loop and our congressmen need a wake up call. “TO ARMS TO ARMS” THE DEMS ARE RAVAGING OUR COFFERS AND COUNTRY.

This bill paves the way for the UN to be ruler of the globe. It allows the UN to tax US citizens, thereby getting their foot in the door to totally govern US citizens eventually.

no no no! Don’t we have enough debt as a nation and no I wil not pay more tax. It is the responsibility of the other nations leaders to take care of their people. Instead of sticking the money in their pockets figure out a stimulas package that will bring agricultural or manufacturing business for their own wealth. why are we to be punished because our nations fore fathers fought to create an environment where men and women use their God given gifts to create wealth. Every nation has that ability but will not think of the people first. It is not our responsibility to be a baby sitter for the world..
