End Citizens United, a political action committee which was recently formed to raise campaign contributions for the election of House and Senate Democrats who support campaign reform, has recently been the topic of several politically aimed news articles regarding the organization’s swift collection of $4 million. The organization’s leader stated that End Citizens United’s workers and volunteers are extremely excited to have raised such a large amount of money in such a small window of time. Organization representatives hope to raise an additional $30 million by the end of the year, an amount which will create effective opposition to the current Republican-led congress.
One of the stated goals of the End Citizens Untied political action committee is to rid United States political campaigns of wealthy contributors. Representatives from End Citizens United expressed concern about the lack of regulation in United States Campaigns. After the Supreme Court ruled that regulation of corporation contributions were unconstitutional and violated the right to free speech, a group of politically engaged Americans who disagreed with the ruling gathered together to form the End Citizens United political action committee. The organization hopes to raise enough money to support politicians who will support campaign reform.
Representatives from End Citizens United also believe that the lack of regulation with regard to corporations and wealthy Americans negatively contribute to United States elections by negating the will of the majority of the American people. These representatives argue that a majority of the American people are middle class citizens without the ability to fully fund entire campaigns and effect political change in the way that corporations and billionaires do. By supporting efforts to introduce reform to the current United States campaign system, End Citizens United representatives hope to redistribute the political power so that elections will result in the true will of the American people.
The End Citizens United organization has received an overwhelming amount of positive press and endorsement from the liberal media. The group was most recently featured on the MSNBC sponsored Rachel Maddow Show where representatives discussed the desperate need for campaign reform in the United States. The organization is asking that interested parties make donations to End Citizens United on a monthly basis. The political action committee’s president stated that the company raised $4 million in 2017 by collecting donations averaging $12 per person per month. This extraordinary amount of money was collected through the donations of average people with average incomes. The team at End Citizens United is extremely proud of the fact that the middle class is stepping up to support efforts to reform campaigns in the United States. Representatives hope that these citizen’s efforts will be rewarded by the introduction of a fair campaign system.
