The End Citizen United is one of the most influential political action committees in the United States today that has grown and thriving on the funds provided by the grassroots donors. The PAC is entirely against the big money that is being pumped into the elections by the rich and the wealthy individuals and the corporate companies, who try to influence the outcome of the polls in their favor. The End Citizen United was formed in the year 2015 with the aim to end the Supreme Court decision of 2010 in the case of Citizens United vs. Federal Election Commission.
It is a well-known fact that the elections are fuelled by unlimited amounts of money to gather momentum and influence the public. More money a particular party has, fancier is their political rallies and campaigns. It is what helps them to collect more support from the public and eventually win. The Supreme Court decision of 2010 made it easier for the big wigs in the society to fund unlimited and unaccountable money to the election without any interruption or screening. It is what has made the elections, unaccountable and unreliable.
It can be easily said that the side who spends more would win in most of the cases. The candidates who win with the big money supporting them would have to support their sponsors once they win the election. It compromises the interest of the common people and makes the rich and the wealthy individuals and corporate companies the primary priorities of the political candidates. Few of the political candidates that End Citizen United has supported over the years include Russ Feingold, Hillary Clinton, Jon Ossoff, Zephyr Teachout, Elizabeth Warren, and more.
The End Citizen United also supports the Johnson Amendment that ensures that big money doesn’t find its way to the places of worship and charities to get channeled into the political campaigns. Many times, it has been seen that the corporate companies and wealthy individuals use the churches and the donations to funnel money into the election campaign, but Johnson Amendment would make it impossible. And, it is what the End Citizen United supports. End Citizen United is against the rollback of the Johnson Amendment and believes that its reversal would give the corporate companies and wealthy individuals free run into the political elections and make it easier for them to influence the elections.

The President of the End Citizen United, Tiffany Mueller, said that if Johnson Amendment is not in place, churches and charities would lose its integrity and instead would become a front to be used by the companies and the mega-donors to funnel their money into the elections. Tiffany Mueller said that such a practice would impact negatively on both the elections as well as our civilized democratic society. Check more:https://actionnetwork.org/groups/end-citizens-united
