    Unless it has the backing of the Republican party and the President, then it has no chance of getting into law. Number of bills each seccion between 5-,7000 and only 5% ever make it into law.

    The US is the biggest financial contributor, but if it left then the UN would carry on and the US would lose its voice and veto. Russia, China and the EU would step in.
