End Citizens United is a political feat created on 1st March, 2015 with the aim of confronting the Supreme Court’s decision made in 2010. On observation, Citizens United has only brought disastrous effects in the country’s financial system. The decision made back then has been affecting America’s elections in a big way, hence the need to push for reform.
The Supreme Court allowed corporations to be regarded as people, and this gave a leeway to some wealthy individuals like the Koch brothers who have been spending a fortune in a bid to slant the balance of political authority in their favor. Other corporations have also joined in, and transparency is no longer there in America’s financial system. The committee has risen against such vices to restore sanity and order in U.S politics.
Mission Towards Which the Committee Strives to Accomplish
The committee is dedicated to fighting black money in the political arena and damage the rigged political system that has only amounted to increased corruption over the years. Since it is not easy, they have prepared to work towards achieving their mission by voting into office pro-reform leaders, pushing the issue about money in politics to the public level and employing grassroots affiliations to illustrate political power. Such steps will guide them in pursuing their mission.
The Committee Charged to Execute Their Goal
The influence of wealthy people in the government can be a big issue to the security of the political system. Thankfully, the Democrats are at the forefront of working towards wiping out Citizens United. It charges the group, even more, to push for justice of the everyday American. Majorly, they are working towards passing a statutory amendment to reverse the decision made by the Supreme Court in 2010 regarding Citizens United. Clearly, the decision gave so much power to the mega PACs and gave way to a tidal upsurge of black money into politics.
Importance of End Citizens United Group
The committee has raised their voices, and some key Republicans have noticed them. As well, the group does not necessarily have to support a Democrat, but they clearly indicated on their website that they will support candidates championing for reforms in the finance sector. It has to be someone who feels the pinch of watching unlimited political spending ruin their country.
The board is set to pursue justice by overturning the decision made by the Supreme Court. It is important to note that the panel consists of influential leaders who are committed to ensuring that dark money no longer circulates the U.S political systems. Stopping the vices might not come easy but either way, something must be done to restore financial power to the everyday citizen.
