End Citizens United’s War against Big Money in US Politics

End Citizens United War against Big Money in US Politics

Being a billionaire is such a big deal. It goes without saying that billionaires have a lot of power and influence. But just how vast are their power and influence? Over the past two decades, the United States Citizens have raised their concerns over the fact that their government might be ruled by the Billionaire club. The reasons for these concerns is the fact that many billionaires and with big corporations have been spending a lot of money endorsing candidates during the election and campaign periods in the United States. The reason behind these endorsements being that most of these people want more power than they already have.

With a person they can control in high ranks in the government of the most powerful country in the globe, these big corporations and billionaires are assured control over some issue that may affect them, their businesses and their wealth. An example is the tax bill that was recently passed. This bill seems to infringe on the normal citizens or rather, the one percent and favor the one percent who are literally at a better position to pay taxes than the later. The control that these individuals have over the governments gives them the power to not be accountable and to encourage lack of transparency in the government. This has been an issue for a while and it became worse when the Supreme Court made a ruling in the year 2010 that literally gave corporations the right to invest in political candidates in a case between End Citizens United and the FEC.

End Citizens United Continues To Endorse Left-Leaning Candidates

The growth of the End Citizens United PAC has been fast and difficult for those on the right of U.S. politics to compete with. Established in 2015, ECU aligned itself with Democrats as President Tiffany Muller believes the PAC can achieve its aims with those on the left rather than the right. The mission of the PAC is to fight against the continued influx of special interest funding into the Republican Party following the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision.

One of the most difficult parts of the work of End Citizens United to gain traction has also been one of its greatest achievements with the launch of the pledge created by Tiffany Muller. From the Washington D.C. base of the PAC, politicians from the left are now lining up to sign a pledge stating they will not accept funding from special interest groups. During the 2016 election cycle, End Citizens United introduced its pledge, which must be signed in order for the backing of the group must be signed and saw just three candidates willing to do so. Visit End Citizens United on Twitter for latest updates.

Among the major decisions made by End Citizens United in the buildup to the 2018 Midterm Election cycle has been the endorsement of various candidates. Among the leading endorsements made by the PAC is that of Beto O’Rourke in an election battle with Republican Senator Ted Cruz. O’Rourke is a Democrat who has stood out from the crowd for his stance on refusing special interest money.

Another popular nominee in his home state is Brendan Kelly, the former State’s Attorney for St. Clare County, Illinois. Not only has the Democratic candidate signed the End Citizens United pledge, but he has also developed a longstanding reputation as a leader in the battle against special interest groups and corporations. The election battle in Illinois looks set to be a difficult one as Senator Mike Bost is known for his role as one of the leading recipients of more than $400,000 in funding from House Speaker Paul Ryan’s congressional leadership committee.
