End Citizens United Changes The Political Landscape Of The U.S.

Every so often, the U.S. political landscape changes in some way which may be for the better or for the worse. The Citizens United decision of 2010 is one which the majority of the U.S. public believe has been created to the detriment of the political landscape in the U.S. because of the high level of interference and influence this Supreme Court decision allowed for special interest groups and billionaire donors. End Citizens United is a traditional PAC fighting to ensure the future of the nation is placed firmly on the changing landscape of election finance regulations which are among the most controversial of recent years.

Established in Washington D.C. under President Tiffany Muller, End Citizens United was created to raise awareness of the issue of unfair election finance regulations; End Citizens United was created to back left-leaning political candidates for office who shared the belief of the PAC in the need to reverse the Citizens United decision. Tiffany Muller made the decision to work with Democrats from across the U.S. as End Citizens United believed members of the party were more open to reversing the 2010 Supreme Court decision than their Republican counterparts who have benefitted most from the ruling.

For Tiffany Muller, the 5-4 Supreme Court decision of 2010 in favor of the Citizens United group was one made with political beliefs in mind as the ruling instantly favored the Republican party and conservative candidates. The GOP has always remained steadfast in its loyalty to the economic elite using a system which benefits conservative candidates greatly for their loyalty to special interest groups.

Eliminating so-called “dark money” from the political scene is something End Citizens United is dedicated to doing and has spent a large amount of the buildup to the 2018 Midterms naming and shaming a group of Republican known to have accepted the most funding from controversial organizations. The “Big Money 20” included some of the biggest names from the GOP including House Speaker Paul Ryan who made the decision to retire rather than face the public with his links to special interest groups revealed by End Citizens United. Backing liberal candidates who pledge not to accept funding from special interest groups during the coming Midterm elections are a major part of the motivation of End Citizens United and drives the work being done in Washington and at the grassroots level.
