Rubio Looks to Reform the United Nations

Fresh off the passing of his amnesty-lite immigration reform bill in the U.S. Senate, Senator Rubio appears to be moving back towards his conservative roots.

Rubio has just introduced legislation to overhaul an reform the United Nations.

“The U.S. should not continue funding the lion’s share of the UN’s budget without, at a minimum, several key reforms to ensure greater accountability and transparency. Nearly 70 years ago, the United Nations was founded to maintain the peace after the end of World War II. While at some times throughout its history the UN has played an effective role in global affairs, today it is plagued by ineffective leadership, excessive bureaucracy, ethical abuses, misspending and transparency problems.

“With the many global challenges we face in the 21st century – including rogue regimes, failed states, terrorism, and blatant violations of human rights – the UN has to get with the times and change. By bringing greater accountability and budget transparency, the U.S. will be able to ensure that American taxpayer dollars going to the UN are actually advancing our national interest.”Sen. Marco Rubio
