End Citizens United is doing the work of the American people. When Citizens United won their Supreme Court case against the FEC, it opened doors for PACs, or political action committees, to accept unlimited amounts of cash on behalf of politicians.
This resulted in corporations having more power than the citizens. It created a political landscape where money won elections. If a campaign is able to influence the people, using misinformation in political ads, then they are able to control the election outcomes. Common citizens simply don’t have the money to compete with corporations. Know more about the group on The Action Network.
Dozens of politicians are teamed up with End Citizens United. These politicians – all Democrats – aim to reverse this Supreme Court decision any way they can. They aren’t able to change the minds of the Justices; however, they are boycotting corporate money. These politicians include Bill Nelson, Beto O’Rourke, Jon Donnelly, Amy Klobuchar, and Elizabeth Warren. But there are dozens of other Democrats working with End Citizens United.
With the political process almost entirely in the hands of big corporations, the importance of reversing this decision cannot be stressed enough. Returning the power to the American people is the goal of End Citizens United and their supported Democratic politicians.
Tiffany Muller is currently leading the organization through the storm. As the first openly gay politician to hold office in Kansas, she knows more than enough about difficult struggles, and the struggle against big money in politics is no different. Tiffany Muller, along with the rest of End Citizens United, are attempting to truly bring a positive change to the American political process.
Other organizations supported include Paul Ruiz, Peter Defazio, Pete Aguilar, Jamie Raskin, and Sean Patrick Maloney. The list of politicians that are teaming up with Muller’s organization is growing more and more as midterms approach. A blue wave this November could set the foundation for the change that America needs.
