Politics are complicated. Any person can get involved with politics, but real change is only made by money. While this is a reality of the American political system, it does not have to be out of balance. The fact is that there are wealthy and powerful American people who have vast resources at their disposal. These individuals have the ability to influence political decisions in their favor. Once again, money is a powerful agent for change in politics.
End Citizens United is a political action committee that has been around since 2010. Its purpose is to stop the unfair practice of large money donations to political candidates, causes and policies. A lot of Republican party members and supporters make huge undisclosed donations to various people, policies and organizations involved in politics.
One group of people known as the “Big Money 20”. This gathering of men known as the Big Money 20 are powerful republican donors who have a lot of financial resources to make things happen. Members of this group include Senator Ted Cruz of Texas and House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin.
Tiffany Muller is the president of End Citizens United. She states that the Big Money 20 are the worse of the worse in Congress. She knows that when one of the Big Money 20 gets involved with a republican cause it will create a lot of imbalance within the system.
The thing about political donations is that people with big money can give as much as they want without disclosure or accountability. In other words, if a person wanted to give a billion dollars of their cash, they could do so over an extended period of time without notice to anyone. Remember that this type of thing could seriously disrupt the political process.
End Citizens United wants the political field to only accept donations from people in limited amounts. Groups and organizations should also be held to limited donations as well. Also, donors should be listed on public records for the contributions that they make. Americans are concerned with big money in politics because they know that wealthy people can change how elections are won and policies are put into action. Also, independent voters are especially concerned about big money in politics.
End Citizens United plans on raising $35 million dollars to bring about this change. They are working with their 300 million members to raise this type of money. The political landscape looks promising for the Republican Party in 2018. However, this does not mean they will continue to run politics. Ultimately, End Citizens United is stepping up to make sure that Republic Party is not overrunning the field of politics. End Citizens United is located in Washington, DC. Their mailing address is P.O. Box 66005 and the zip code is 20035.
It’s no secret that the #GOPTaxScam is going to hurt middle-class Americans. But two Koch-backed groups today announced that they’re launching a multi-million dollar campaign to convince people into thinking it’s good for them. https://t.co/NImc2N5SYh
