End Citizens United is a political reform group that formed on March 1st, 2015 as a response to 2010 when the Supreme Court decided in the Citizens United vs. F.E.C. completely changed the landscape of American elections forever. This was done through establishing the legal basis “corporations are people” which allows the door to be opened for billionaires to spend an unlimited amount of American citizen’s taxpayer dollars on elections. The End Citizens United is a political reform group that is dedicated to reforming the disastrous laws that allow candidates spending to run rampant. Our federal campaign spending laws need severely revamped to ensure that people’s tax money is not being spent in unjust ways.
The End Citizens United is an organization that calls citizens and local people to make a difference through various actions. You can sign your name to thank Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg for fighting Citizens United. You can attend a town hall to make your voices heard to the local representatives that represent your area to make the laws and reforms a priority. Join the movement that helps hold the president Donald Trump and his elected officials accountable for the promises they have made and for fulfilling the will of the people to ensure that their tax money is being spent on the right things with the money being spent on campaigns.
In the end, the End Citizens United was one of the new political players in the 2016 election campaign as they wanted to make their name a big player in the game. This resulted in them funneling $10s millions to various Democrat candidates that were running for offices throughout the US. In the end, the group believes they will be able to raise about $25 to $30 million during this entire campaign cycle according to their Communications Director Richard Carbo.
The ultimate goal of the group is to get a constitutional amendment to reverse the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision which until 2010 gave rise to super PACs and unleashed a tidal wave of dark money into politics. To date, more than 325,000 people have signed the End Citizens United Petition and That number is likely to receive a boost as the group is paired with the “Ready for Hillary” movement which includes the upwards of 4 million members to date and they plan to reach out to more supporters in the future.
