End Citizens United a Political Action Committee (PAC) that was formed to try and minimize the political implications of the Supreme Court ruling in Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission. The controversial decision withdrew the government power to control activities of corporations that may impact election results. It ended Finance laws that had for many years required campaigns to acknowledge their donors. Citizens’ victory meant that corporations were free to contribute to their preferred campaigns as much money as they wished with anonymity.

According to some political players believe that this ruling should be overturned because it is disastrous and threatens Democracy because it represents the interests of the wealthy donors instead of voters’ interests. End Citizens United collects campaign contributions at the grassroots level that is intended to support politicians who oppose Citizens United and advocate for amendment of the current election finance laws. It was able to raise $26 million in the 2016 election and has a target of reaching $35 million in this year’s election cycle. The PAC’s strategy is to endorse and provide financial assistance to candidates who have detached themselves with big money from corporations and then use these candidates when they assume office to pass legislation that will change the campaign finance laws.

End Citizen’s United is also on a mission to unseat politicians who have ties with big money corporations like Rick Scott whom they accuse of using big corporate donations to sponsor his senate campaign. The PAC has filed a complaint about Rick’s conduct to the Federal Election Commission and continue to reveal damaging accusations aimed at reducing Rick’s popularity at the ballot. Rick Scott is among 20 other politicians being targeted by End Citizens United.

The 2018 mid-cycle elections are approximately six months away and End Citizens United is endorsing Democratic candidates that are committed to its efforts. The PAC’s endorsements have been making headlines especially for candidates like Beto O’Rourke, Randy Bryce, Jacky Rosen and Andy Kim. Beto is seeking to unseat Senator Ted Cruz. Randy Bryce and Jacky Rosen are hoping to be elected to the Senate too and have pledged to continue supporting election finance reforms. Andy Kim is a diplomat vying for Congress and is determined to replace Tom MacArthur who is the current congressman for the 3rd District of New Jersey and a notorious beneficiary of big money. Indeed, End Citizens United is a formidable player in the 2018 midterm elections.

The left-leaning political group, End Citizens United has been building support for its work attempting to protect the remaining election finance regulations for three years since its establishment in 2015. The main aim of the left-leaning PAC is to overturn the divisive Citizens United decision but it has also begun to play a major role in the wider world of U.S. politics including the protection of the Johnson Amendment and the development of a pledge designed to ensure candidates endorsed by the group do not accept funding from special interest groups.

Alongside the work being completed by End Citizens United in national and local elections, the desire to continue fighting for the end of the 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision remains strong. Understanding the reasons why the PAC came into existence is one of the key aspects of the continued fight for election victories for Democrats in the view of ECU President Tiffany Muller. The power of so-called “mega-donors” such as the Koch Brothers has been expanding since the decision of the Supreme Court in 2010 as conservative special interest groups have continued to become more influential than ever before and threaten the democracy of the U.S.

The basics of the ruling of 2010 date back to an attempt by the Citizens United group to screen what the Federal Election Committee referred to as a 90-minute campaign ad titled, “Hillary: The Movie.” The FEC barred the screening of the movie and were then taken to court by Citizens United and their supporters who wanted the ruling to be overturned; after a Federal Court backed the FEC decision the Supreme Court ruled in favor of the Citizens United group by a single vote in a 5-4 decision.

One of the main reasons End Citizens United back Democrats in elections is the fact they are deemed friendlier to enacting election finance change as Republicans are the ones who have benefitted most from Citizens United gaining their Supreme Court victory. Super PACs and special interest groups have managed to raise hundreds of millions of dollars without allowing the public of the U.S. the chance to learn about the reality of the Supreme Court decision.

End Citizens United is as much an educational tool as it is a political group with the news of greater levels of support for Democrats in traditionally Republican areas linked directly to left-leaning candidates providing their support for the work being done by the PAC and for greater restrictions of election campaign funding.

The citizens united bill was something that was detrimental to people all around the United States. In fact, it was a major problem for people who wanted to be able to donate money to campaign they supported. While it did not stop them from donating to the politicians they support, it did make their donation less valuable. Since extremely wealthy people and corporations can now donate with the same limits as average citizens, they are spending a lot more money than most people and having a bigger influence over those who are typically supposed to be the ones with the most power. Since there are so many people who are spending money on campaigns, it’s taking the power away from the citizens of the United States. This is not something that ever should have happened and it causes big problems for the people who want to donate to their candidate of choice.

When the committee that is now End Citizens United heard about this problem, they knew they had to do something. That’s how ECU was born. They are a committee of people who are working together to stop the law from hurting even more citizens. As a political action committee, they have the ability to make a lot of change for the better. They are constantly working to help citizens and do what they can to allow them the chance to actually start using their campaigns to make things better for everyone in the future.

End Citizens United is comprised of citizens who care about their rights. They don’t want others to have the chance to have the power of them when it comes to candidates they support. Instead, they want to make things easier for people. By getting rid of citizens united, they are going to put the power back into the hands of everyone. They know what they are going to be able to do to make a difference so all of the people who are a part of the country will have a chance at a more positive life.

End Citizens United sees this as something that will get better for people. They want everyone to know what they are going to be able to do no matter what is going on with their careers. They also know they will have a chance to try different things when they are working toward a better future for the United States. Since citizens united can lead to far more corruption in the government, it will also lead to the government having some issues. End Citizens United knows it’s important to stop the bill for more than just one reason, and they work to do it the right way.
