U.N. leaders consider world tax to fund social protection, services

NEW YORK — Outside the United Nations headquarters, hundreds of people were shouting and waving banners Tuesday that read "China and Russia – No Veto." These people wanted support from the Security Council of the U.N. to oust the President of Syria, Bashar al-Assad.

Inside the U.N., another group of civil society leaders demanded a basic level of social security as they promoted a "social protection floor" at a preparatory forum for the

“U.N. presenters Tuesday discussed the possibility of a 'very small (world) tax of 0.005 percent' that would ensure citizens of the world didn’t live 'below a certain income level.'”

Commission on Social Development, which began Feb. 1.

The focus of the forum was "universal access to basic social protection and social services."

"No one should live below a certain income level," stated Milos Koterec, President of the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations. "Everyone should be able to access at least basic health services, primary education, housing, water, sanitation and other essential services."

These services were presented at the forum as basic human rights equal to the rights of "life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness."

The money to fund these services may come from a new world tax.

"We will need a modest but long-term way to finance this transformation," stated Jens Wandel, Deputy Director of the United Nations Development Program. "One idea which we could consider is a minimal financial transaction tax (of .005 percent). This will create $40 billion in revenue."

"It is absolutely essential to establish controls on capital movements and financial speculation," said Ambassador Jorge Valero, the current Chairman of the Commission on Social Development. He called for "progressive policies of taxation" that would require "those who earn more to pay more taxes."

Valero's speech to the forum focused on capitalism as the source of the world financial problems.

When asked where she expected the money to provide all needy people with a basic income, healthcare, education and housing would come from, Fatima Rodrigo, one of the presenters at the forum, mentioned the "very small tax of .005 percent."

She added, "There is plenty of money, we just need to stop spending it on militaries and wars."

"Military spending is the problem," claimed Winifred Doherty, chairman of the NGO Committee on Social Development and organizer for the CSD Forum.......
The income tax started at 1%. We already pay taxes to send welfare to dictators that keep the money for themselves. I'm sure the same would happen with a UN global tax and the money would go to billionaires. Their global warming taxes are failing so they play the "save the poor people" card.

Let's all get upset about something that will be forgotten about by Thursday.
I certainly hope so as far as the tax goes.

As for the UN, we really should get out of it.

And again, not everything is "fauxrage".

People really are getting tired of this shit.

Remember, this is the way this country started.

this is just another redistribution of wealth plan by the socialists

the same as the whole global warming nonsense and every other plan to grab money from the USA and send it to filthy third world countries

the same as obammas constant attack on the wealthy and class warfare campaign strategy

It's a fucking joke.
I was talking to my buddy and thought it would be kind of cool of the UN became solely focused on space exploration... kind of like a coalition of countries contributing to certain projects.

However I agree, the UN has almost no value to us.

The U.S. arrears issue

The UN has always had problems with members refusing to pay the assessment levied upon them under the United Nations Charter. But the most significant refusal in recent times has been that of the U.S. Since 1985 the U.S. Congress has refused to authorize payment of the U.S. dues, in order to force UN compliance with U.S. wishes, as well as a reduction in the U.S. assessment.[13]

After prolonged negotiations, the U.S. and the UN negotiated an agreement whereby the United States would pay a large part of the money it owes, and in exchange the UN would reduce the assessment rate ceiling from 25% to 22%. The reduction in the assessment rate ceiling was among the reforms contained in the 1999 Helms-Biden legislation, which links payment of $926 million in U.S. arrears to the UN and other international organizations to a series of reform benchmarks.[citation needed]

U.S. arrears to the UN currently total over $1.3 billion. Of this, $612 million is payable under Helms-Biden. The remaining $700 million result from various legislative and policy withholdings; at present, there are no plans to pay these amounts.[citation needed]

Under Helms-Biden, the U.S. paid $100 million in arrears to the UN in December 1999; release of the next $582 million awaits a legislative revision to Helms-Biden, necessary because the benchmark requiring a 25 percent peacekeeping assessment rate ceiling was not quite achieved. The U.S. also seeks elimination of the legislated 25 percent cap on U.S. peacekeeping payments in effect since 1995, which continues to generate additional UN arrears. Of the final $244 million under Helms-Biden, $30 million is payable to the UN and $214 million to other international organizations.[citation needed]

Is anyone REALLY surprised that the UN wants to do this?

We need to just pull out of the UN. Let 'em find a new headquarters while they're at it.

We already have a system in place for this problem. It's called charities. And they do it a hell of a lot more efficiently then the UN with all it's bullshit and red tape ever could.

Feed a child for 20 cents a day, the UN will do it for $2000.

What the fuck is this now? The entire world is now the White Man's burden?

Feeding them just leads to breeding, which will mean an even higher "poor tax."

I completely agree with you. Sadly, Human Beings are still allowed to breed unchecked. It'll be that way for a long long time to come.

Breed unchecked=Food whenever the drought that happens every 10 years occurs, or the tsunami and monsoon that happens every 5 years happens, etc. Helping the survivors just lets them breed even further, so when the next catastrophe that the double digit idiots don't plan for happens, it endangers and kills even more people.

From 1970 to 2010 the U.N. gave I want to say 4 trillion to "developing nations." All it did was cause the global populations in India, Asia and sub-Saharan Africa in particular, to skyrocket. Just how developed are these countries? If the first 4 trillion didn't do anything, what is the next 4 trillion supposed to accomplish?
