The party introduced a “different” candidates in the four elections in recent months: But Republicans halted all progress, condemning Democratic lawmakers, strategists and party officials repeated the same question: how will we be able turn around these results so that we can retake Congress next year?

 

After the realization that Citizens United, a legalization which allowed big corporations to fund political interests as individuals instead of businesses, effected the previous election almost absolutely, End Citizens United was formed as a way to counteract it. End Citizens United believes that our government can not allow the results of campaigns, to become entirely swayed by huge donors. After many unsuccessful attempts by the democrat party, thanks to this call for reform by End Citizens United, democrats are now able to regain strong hold on the political scene.

 

 

At the same time , Citizens United still struggles for the lifting of restrictions on political donations. These Corporation use money as the key factor to promote their interests through impressionable candidates. Our present president is most vulnerable to this lack of structure, ever since they have lifted limitations, such as : $5,000 directly from one citizen for the electoral cycle in the presidential candidate’s election fund. This is why End Citizens United was established and it is valiantly making a difference for the betterment of the relationship between a government and its citizens.

 

End Citizens United grossed $ 4 million in the first three months of 2017, and projected to meet $ 35 million for the 2018 midterm elections. The organization spent $ 25 million in the 2016 election cycle, your first choice since it was founded a year earlier. More recently, the committee raised $ 1.4 million in support of Democrat Jon Ossoff in a special election for a seat in the House of Representatives in Georgia. Ossoff lost the race last week before the Republican Karen Handel, but set a record collection in Congress, raising a total of $ 23 million. “I am running to represent the people, not big business or special interests,” O’Rourke said in a statement. “That’s why I do not accept money from political action committees, and that is why I am grateful to have the support of End Citizens United. Together we will recover Texas, we will recover the Senate and, most importantly, to regain our democracy. ”

 

O’Rourke is 100% right to stand by the newly formed committee. Regardless how much the reportedly wealthy accumulates, it is usually the regular Joes who generate the wealth of the country with their own hands. The wealthy have just found a very biased way of controlling huge sums without having to distribute any evenness to the masses. One can only hope that there will be more groups like End Citizens United who are in favor of helping the lower to middle classes consolidate their own funding solution into a power house of democratic reform.
