The campaign finance system of the United States has been in the news for many years now. As per the rule of the Supreme Court, it is possible for the organizations, individuals, and business entities to spend an infinite amount of unaccounted money during the elections. The rule was formed after the Citizens United filed a lawsuit in the Supreme Court against the rule and the court decided in favor of Citizens United. It has made it easier to make inroads into the political system of the country by funding the elections and favoring the political candidates. The political candidates after winning the polls and getting into the state are then obliged to return the favor by making decisions in their favor from time to time, overshadowing the benefits to the standard population.
End Citizens United is a political action committee that was formed in 2015 with the sole purpose of overturning the Supreme Court decision in the Citizens United case. As the individuals and corporations are allowed to spend an infinite amount of money in the elections, it becomes difficult for the many political candidates who are standing in the elections to get the chance to win. The lavish political and election campaigns by the candidates with the corporate backing are always able to win the heart of the voters. The marketing campaign of the corporate-backed candidates has a further outreach, and the overall appeal is much more attractive due to lavish spending.
End Citizens United is a PAC that is aimed at gathering the funds from the grassroots donors and uses that money to support the candidates who have denounced the corporate money. It is essential that such a culture is promoted to end the corruption prevailing inside the political system of the country. The corporations and high net worth individuals are ruling the country indirectly by making the decisions on behalf of the political candidates that are the front. End Citizens United backs many political candidates across the country and is also helping with creating the awareness about how the corporate money is being misused to take over the country’s independent political system. End Citizens United aims to throw out the corporate influence from the politics.
