What are Members of Congress doing with your tax dollars? Today’s Washington Times published my op-ed on funding that Congress recently approved for UNESCO:
Ultimately, it seems Senate proponents understood the inadvisability of sacrificing long-standing U.S. foreign policy to gain a U.N. seal of approval for a park featuring prehistoric earthworks, an old mission or other local site. The value of these is self-evident. There is no need to pay millions of dollars for outside affirmation.
The spending bill signed into law keeps current law intact and provides no funding for UNESCO. It does, however, allocate hundreds of millions in assessed and voluntary contributions to other U.N. agencies and bodies.
The battle was won but the war is far from over.
