The political scene of the United States has been a matter of discussion world over in the last few years, primarily because of the way the elections are being conducted. The amount of money that flows in and out of election campaigns has become a cause of concern as it gives the power to the corporations and wealthy individuals residing in the United States to manipulate the outcome of the election campaigns. The election campaign finance rules decided by Supreme Court of the United States in 2010 has made it easier for the corporations to channel their money into the elections to favor the political candidates of their choice. It has made it difficult for the everyday people to trust the government as the power of money is controlling the government and the political candidates and is influencing the country’s administrative policies.
End Citizens United is one of the most vocal political action committees against the campaign finance rules that exist now. The PAC has played a very vital role in spreading the awareness about how the corporations and affluent individuals are controlling the elections with their money and indirectly controlling and making the government policies that give top priority to the companies rather than everyday people. End Citizens United collects its fund from the everyday people and uses it effectively to support the political candidates who back the reforms in the campaign finance regulations. ECU supports the political candidates who are against the existing campaign finance rules, and it has helped many candidates to gain a strong position in the political circle.
The primary aim of ECU is to give back the control of election in the hands of people where it rightly belongs. The ECU founder and President, Tiffany Mueller, recently listed the names of the top twenty targets in the year 2018 who the PAC would be opposing. It includes the names such as Dana Rohrabacher, Darrell Issa, Duncan Hunter, and Mimi Walters. From the time the ECU was made till now, the political action committee has collected and spent millions of dollars in backing the political candidates who are for the campaign finance rules reforms. The ECU firmly believes that the Supreme Court of the country should pull back its decision to ensure that the election campaigns that should be neutral are not diluted with the power of money.
Tiffany Mueller is confident that the movement she has started with the help of End Citizens United is picking up the pace and creating mass awareness, which would in the future help in achieving the objectives for which the ECU was formed in the first place. The amount of fund collection has also been increasing at a rapid pace in the last couple of years.
