Citizen’s United has already had a major impact on politics and will likely remain a controversial decision for a long time to come. End Citizens United and political organizations continue the fight to find legal ways to overturn the ruling. Many corporations represent multi-national interests. End Citizens United also claims the ruling allows for secret money laundering. Independent spending, unchecked, can corrupt the political process. Influence and loyalty are the elements that largely impact the realm of politics.
For the past ten years, at least, Americans have lived in an environment where big money corporate donors determined the fate of elections. For the most part, it is beyond the real understanding of most Americans how large companies and dark money can influence the outcome of elections. End Citizens United hopes to change the narrative.

It is also no secret that the problem of big money in politics is at an all-time high and concern. The fact that money can determine the outcome of an election gives those with the money an advantage. Thus, when campaign laws fail to put such things in check, the republic is in danger of failing to corporatism. Data-based campaigns are responsible for much of the power that big corporations and dark-money sources wield. PACs control and dominate a lot of advertising campaigns.
It was in 2010 that the Supreme Court ruled against prohibiting labor unions, corporations, and other entities from making financial contributions to candidates in office, or running for office. The Supreme Court ruled that prohibiting such contributions would be a violation of the First Amendment and freedom of speech.
The Court’s ruling overturned a bipartisan Campaign Reform Act, which limited the amount of individual political contributions and the ability of corporations to provide money for political advertising. The act was called the McCain-Feingold Act. The ruling also overturned the Federal Election Campaign Act.
The Supreme Court’s ruling in favor of Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission tipped the scales in favor of corporations. Among those most involved in the fight are End Citizens United Democrats laboring to enact laws on campaign refinancing.
The PAC End Citizens United, based in Washington D.C., released a statement about the recently passed tax bill that was only supported by Republicans. President Tiffany Muller stated that the only people getting a Christmas gift from the Republican party in regards to the tax bill was their mega-donors who stand to profit handsomely. She pointed out how shameful it is that this bill passed and it once again showed how politics in Washington D.C. are rigged in favor of the very well connected wealthiest people in the nation. This rigged system has resulted in far too many politicians who only care about the special interests of these wealthy people.
The tax bill that was passed is going to very much hurt middle and lower class families which makes up the vast majority of the country. The only way to hold the politicians that voted yes on this tax bill is to take action in the 2018 elections and hold them accountable by voting them out of office.
End Citizen’s United created a “Big Money 20” list which shows exactly who is mostly just a puppet for special interests. 17 of the 20 on their list voted for this tax bill. That 17 incumbents had received $11.7 million to vote yes on the bill from wealthy special interests. They also voted against efforts to unrig the current system when they voted against reforming the system.
The “Big MOney 20” is End Citizen’s United’s biggest targets in the upcoming midterm 2018 elections. This PAC aims to raise $35 million from small donors which they will spend in order to throw these incumbents out of office. They are supporting their opponents who have pledged to unrig the system and return to listening to the average citizen of the United States and not just those like the Koch brothers.
The main goal of End Citizen’s United is to reform the rules surrounding campaign financing. The amount of money being given to some politicians by corporations wealthy people has gotten completely out of hand since the Supreme Court rules in 2010 that they have a free speech right to spend as much as they want. Ever since they have been buying politicians to do their bidding and ignore what their constituents want.
End Citizens United maintains a very active Facebook page. On it they share political news and their views on them. They also make posts showing which Democratic candidates they are backing around the country. One post lists their event taking place February 2-4 in New Orleans. The event is called the “Unrig the System Summit”. It is taking place on the campus of Tulane University and tickets can be bought through their Facebook page.
Today, End Citizens United, the famous political act committee announced that they are behind the endorsement of KyrsteinSinema for U.S. senate. The congresswoman is being trusted with the senate seat for Arizona. It is projected that she can offer better services as a leader. Her main strong points and characters feature transparency in addition to accountability. Her special interests are focused on Washington; a place she says is not limited to money and is often associated with influencing elections.
Tiffany Muller, the president of the political action committee had something to say about the endorsement. Muller stated that the group is elated to trust Kyrsten with the seat. She also described her as an independent voice that speaks for Arizona, the families and the afflicted in the area. She is one leader who holds firm to the belief that democracy should be enjoyed by every citizen. EUC stated that it is proud to be associated with Sinema given her focus of fighting for finance reforms.
Speech by Sinema
Sinema said that the people of Arizona are fed up. It was time they had a new leader who is focused on growing the city to different levels. She was also quick to point out that Washington is broken and the office is selling them out without their interests at heart. Special donors have been on the verge of squandering the people’s money without their knowledge, a fact that the leaders manning the offices are well, aware of. Sinema also stated her interests in working for the facilitation of democracy and reducing the effects of dark money in the city. She categorically quoted the influence that money has on the political systems that have been rigged.
Sinema is a perfect candidate for the position because she wants to focus on the implementation of strategies that can assist citizens. She is bringing to the table a new service delivery platform that will favor citizens in terms of money circulation. She believes that if people work as a team, there will be solutions ahead. Being congresswoman, Sinema commits to unrigging the system by stopping the circulation of big monies. She has often stood up for the people by voting against weird legislations that have since allowed the injection of money by mega-donors.
