In the year 2010, the United States Supreme Court ruled against the Citizens United in a powerful case with the popular F.E.C. Since then, the court ruling has transformed the political landscape in the country. The court clearly established that the citizens are corporations. This unique decision forced the billionaires in the country to spend huge amounts of money so that they could fund the political campaign of their choice during the elections. The actions reduced the transparency and accountability in the political, financial system. The wealthy individuals in the country such as the Koch brothers have been spending billions of money so that they can venture into politics. This cycle has been taking place since then, and many high net worth individuals are doing their best to get political powers illegally.
End Citizens United is currently one of the most powerful PACs in the United States at the moment. The institution was established in the early months of 2015 to reduce the effects of the court ruling of the year 2010. The founders of the institution felt that the rights of the people who are not wealthy were ignored due to the few wealthy people who were in power. The pac focuses on reforming the financial system in the campaign system so that the middle-class citizen gets the right leadership. Since it was established, the institution works hard to show the voters, elected officials, candidates and all grassroots voters that billionaires should not be given an opportunity to buy elections. The organization also wants to pressure policy makers to act and bring an end to the political offenders in the country.
This year, the successful Pac founders and leadership announced in different platforms that it had managed to raise more than four million dollars that will be used in the upcoming congress election. The president of the institution said that the institution is looking forward to raising more cash so that it can support several candidates in the elections. With several candidates for the congress, the Pac believes that they will be able to make an impact in the society in a short duration. Most of the individuals who have made the contribution have done it for the first time.
According to the current president, Tiffany Muller, it will be very easier to introduce the changes in the finance system if there are adequate funds. The institution is planning to raise more than thirty-five million dollars for use in the next presidential campaigns. End Citizens United says that it is hopeful that the middle-class citizens will be able to raise funds needed to bring down the billionaire’s who have only been focusing on bringing the country down while safeguarding their interests.
