GOP Gives $500 Million to UN’s Green Climate Slush Fund

GOP Senate Fucks Voters Again

  • There is only one political party in the U.S. - The Republicrat Party of, by and for Big Government, open borders and oligarchy.
  • Both parties are bought and paid for by special interest Billionaire Cartels. They laugh at you and your "party loyalty" while lining the pockets of their buddies with cold hard cash.

(The Hill)  -  The Senate Appropriations Committee on Wednesday adopted a $500 million spending package for the Green Climate Fund, an international climate change adaptation program.
Members approved the funding, via an amendment from Sens. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), Mark Kirk (R-Ill.), Susan Collins (R-Maine) and others, on a voice vote, despite strong Republican opposition to the measure.
The amendment removes language from the committee-approved State Department and Foreign Operations funding bill preventing the State Department from providing money for the fund, a program designed to support poor countries that are impacted by climate change. 
Republicans have opposed the fund for a host of reasons and fought hard to block funding for it during last year’s appropriations process. At the time, they said the funding shouldn't go forward unless the Senate got to vote on the international climate change agreement reached in December. 
A year-end spending deal didn’t fund the U.S.’s contribution to the climate program, but the State Department was able to find $500 million within its budget for it anyway. 
The Obama administration has promised $3 billion for the program by 2020.
