During the campaign time in America, politicians and other donors spend an unlimited and untraceable amount of money. However, End Citizens United believes there should be a level of accountability. They believe the use of the strong financial muscle by business magnates with an aim of tipping the political power in their favor is not right. Therefore, End Citizens United seeks to reform the campaign expenditure in order to monitor any expenditure that is not meant for the good. The reformist group is seeking to increase momentum of the idea of cutting down on the campaign expenditure in order to make the lawmakers take action. This is because they believe billionaires use their money to buy election victory.
The focus of the reformist movement is to combat the use of financial muscle to rig elections. It also seeks to elect people who are passionate about the campaign expenditure. The reformists who will be elected to fight the dark money will also help to end the unlimited money in the political culture of America. They will also put the issue of big money during elections as a national issue. The movement has been supporting the Democrats who are passionate about reviewing the way politicians and donors spend money during campaigns. This is because they believe the political campaigns that are surrounded by unlimited use of money, end up influencing the outcome of the elections. The focus of the movement is also to emphasize on political spending.
Making the Name a Reality
The focus of End Citizens United is to reserve a decision made by the Supreme Court in 2010. The decision gave a clean bill of health to political donors and other rich politicians to bring the issue of dark money. The number of people in the movement has grown to 325,000. It has also seen a great growth in the number of people who have signed up in their email list. This is because over 4 million people have registered. This will help them to reach out to people who are potential liberal supporters and get grass root support. The movement has also been making its name a realty by announcing that it has endorsed 11 candidates in the Democratic Party.
The focus of End Citizens United is to end dark-money groups. In relation to this plan, the movement seeks to have an independent expenditure arm. The purpose of the arm will be to follow up on the expenditure on television ads, polling and direct mailers. Political experts have commented that the work of End Citizens United is commendable. This is because the pressure it mounts on the Supreme Court makes it easy for the legal arm not to make worse decisions in future.
