The End Citizens United fight is not in vain.

The Supreme Court passed the Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission ruling after the Citizens United took the Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission case to the court in 2010. The Citizens United took the case to the Supreme Court after they lost in the federal courts in 2008.

The 2008 case followed a demand by the Federal Election Commission (FEC) to the Citizens United to reveal the sponsors of a 90 minutes-long campaign ad aired on the television. The ad was known as Hillary: The Movie which sought to oppose Hillary Clinton’s run for the presidential office.

The ruling indicates that the government has no right to interfere with fundraising conducted by organizations aimed to finance campaigns. The government also cannot regulate the spending of funds by a specific organization in a particular campaign. Many feel that this ruling has tied the government hands in limiting the power of organizations to determine an election result.

Many political organizations have risen to reverse the Citizens United v. FEC ruling together with its effects. They are also seeking a legal way to end the Citizens United. Among the leading organizations in the fight is End Citizens United that was established on March 1, 2015. It upholds it stand by raising money for its activities from grassroots.

The organization has its headquarters based in Washington, DC. The following are experienced and able leaders of End Citizens United: Tiffany Muller (President and Executive Director), Matt Burgess (Executive Vice President), Adam Bozzi (Communications Director), Anne Feldman (Press Secretary), Andrew Lasker (Finance Director) and Jordan Wood (Political Director). A well-abled board also characterizes the organization.

The preparations for the 2018 election cycle are underway. It aims at raising $35 million for its activities this year. The endorsement of 130 candidates for 2018 has already been carried out. These are to finance from the corporate PAC funding. The End Citizens United seeks to help candidates that turn down colossal financing offers from individuals and corporate PAC.

This year, the corporation targets politicians who accept the “big money” finance. It has named them “the Big Money 20.” The organization’s reason for targeting these leaders is the claim that the leaders have upheld policies favoring their donor’s interests rather than the ordinary people.

With the help of several other factors, End Citizens United is succeeding in its efforts. For example, among the many Republican retirements is the Congress House Speaker Paul Ryan, one of “the Big Money 20.”

End Citizens United Speaking For The Campaign Finance Reform

The use of money in the political elections has been rapidly increasing in the past few decades, and it has dramatically been negatively impacting the public sentiment and how the government functions as well. Many of the policies that the government has been making implementing seem like are made for the benefit of the corporations that have backed the political parties and political candidates rather than for the interest and the benefit of the people. In the United States, a law was passed by the Supreme Court in 2010 that allowed the individuals and the corporations to spend as much money they want in the elections. Such a decision has to be changed what Tiffany Mueller, founder and the President of the End Citizens United feels.

End Citizens United is one of the leading political action committees in the country that is standing up to defend the interest of the country and overturn the decision made by the Supreme Court in 2010 in FEC versus Citizens United case. End Citizens United collects money from the people and uses that money to endorse the political candidates that are supporting their movement as well as standing tall and firm against the political candidates who are using the corporate money. End Citizens United wants to spread awareness among the country’s population that the corporations are using their money to influence the elections and putting up the government in the elections that would work for them rather than the people. End Citizens United believes in the power of unity and the people and knows that if the people work together to defend against the force of Big Money, the victory would be theirs sooner than later.

End Citizens United has been trying many unique and innovative ways to reach out to as many people as possible across the nation to create awareness about the illicit use of money by the corporations to influence the elections’ results. End Citizens want that only the political candidates that reject the use of corporate money are elected into the Congress, and are endorsing the political candidates that have rejected the application of corporate money in their election campaign. The outreach of the End Citizens United has been increasing in past couple of years and some of the candidates it is endorsing in the year 2018 are Max Rose, Josh Butner, Sylvia Garcia, Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, and many others.
