End Citizens United Supports Ten Reform Champions Ahead Of 2018 Elections

End Citizens United, a leading PAC that is known for its fight against the uncontrolled flow of money into politics, decided to support ten reform champions in the 2018 elections. Interestingly, all of them vowed to fight against the rigged system that is currently ruling the Washington. They also expressed the feeling that the big money and special interest groups are working against the mandate of the people. The list of candidates includes Abby Finkenauer from IA-01, Joe Neguse from CO-02, Gretchen Driskell from MI-07, Susie Lee from NV-03, Angie Craig from MN-02, Ken Harbaugh from OH-07, Betsy Rader from OH-14, Christina Hartman from PA-16, Daylin Leach from PA-07, and Joe Cunningham from SC-01.

The President of the PAC, Tiffany Muller, confirmed that the Congress is infected with politicians who are puppets of their big money donors, and the time has reached to remove them from there. She further added that the list of candidates supported by ECU has pledged to fight against such corrupting influences, which easily supplies the needs of money donors, through meaningful finance reform legislation. Muller continued that the PAC is elated to work with the candidates at the grass root level by mobilizing ECU members to make the candidates get elected. In addition to that, the PAC has set a target of raising nearly $35 million for the election scheduled in 2018 accounting with an average donation target of $14.

ECU has a mission of bringing back the unrigged system by ending the extravaganza of big money donors for utilizing politicians to run the administration to protect their business interests. The group that is working at the grass root level is trying to accumulate the voice of everyday Americans and their families to end the era of big money politics. ECU was established by some political activists under the leadership of Muller in 2015. The mission of the PAC was to remove the adverse effects that created by the Citizen United Supreme Court order in 2010. The court order was widely criticized by the political activists as a gateway for corporations to purchase the election system of the country by pumping unlimited money for their nominees.

While endorsing the reform champions, the PAC is also working to expose the representatives who are the puppets of money donors. It also warns the people about the danger the country and its democratic system facing, in the wake Russian infiltration into the campaign process during the 2016 Presidential Election. The PAC thinks that the situation is highly vulnerable as the current campaign finance laws and the system cannot successfully dilute the attacks of foreign groups and restrict their access to the system. End Citizens United wanted the message of imminent threat to be passed to the people, and it campaigns through social media platforms, mass media network, awareness programs, and more.

End Citizens United Aims at Campaign Finance Reform

If the political machine in the United States was an ocean it would be infested by pollution. That pollution, oddly enough, is money. Dark money in politics has made the American government a machine that is completely beholden to special interests and lobbyists, where anybody with enough money can go ahead and take control of the course of a politicians voting record. See the problem here? When money has a louder voice than American voters, rich and poor, the government is no longer functioning. That is why Tiffany Muller, the president at End Citizens United, has been fighting tooth and nail to reclaim some sort of purity in the political machine.

 

End Citizens United is a political action committee that was created with the sole purpose of turning over one of the most swampy Supreme Court decisions of all time: the 2010 Citizens United case. Of course, most people aren’t aware of Citizens United so they don’t realize just how damaging it has been to American politics. The job of Tiffany Muller and her PAC is to bring awareness to the court decision and raise money in order to fund politicians who promise to actually work toward repealing it with a congressional amendment. For those not in the know, Citizens United is a right wing group that lobbied the Supreme Court to loosen regulations on campaign financing — thus opening the doors for serious problems in the political machine.

 

Due to the increase in rage toward the Presidency of Donald Trump more people are looking to become politically aware and politically active — and this has helped End Citizens United in a huge way. Through the first quarter of fundraising for Tiffany Muller’s PAC they have raised a jaw dropping $4 million. While this is an impressive amount it isn’t exactly going to get the job done. With the 2018 Congressional Elections coming up, Muller and the team at End Citizens United know that they need to make some serious moves toward raising money. Through the entire 2017 year the team at End Citizens United is looking to raise about $35 million and if they can hit that mark, they just might make their name a reality.

 

The big problem for End Citizens United in Washington D.C. is that their mission goal, while noble, isn’t a bipartisan one. While almost 80% of American voters agree on campaign reform, a stunning 0% of Congressional Republicans are willing to stand behind it. This means that End Citizens United is backing only Democrats, including Senator Russ Feingold and Senator Michael Bennet. If End Citizens United can get Democrats into Congressional seats in 2018 there might just be a path to success and taking back American politics.
