End Citizens United’s Political Action Committee was formed in March 2014. It is donated by grassroots level contributors. The committee is active against an organization named Citizens United which they consider harmful to the American society. The committee members are mobilizing elected officials, voters, candidates and the press that Citizens United is buying elections for billionaires. The main objective of End Citizens United is the formation of a coalition that would do tasks like restructuring the financial system and influence elected officials for continuing it. One can easily say that End Citizens United is against the Big Money in the US politics because it is a loophole for rigging. For that, end of Citizens United is vital, so American politics cannot be manipulated with money. The action committee is choosing grassroots level members for showing its power and electing candidates who favor reforms.
During 2016 elections, End Citizens United supported candidates of Democratic Party that were against Citizens United. The candidates are also for reforms that PAC is advocating for some time. It was discovered that rigging was done in the elections by Koch Brothers and SuperPAC. Representatives and senators were bought with dark money. On August 2015, End Citizens United was founded to counter this practice. Since its formation, small donors donated the group an amount of two million dollars. The target to achieve its goals is thirty million dollars.
A court gave a decision in the favor of Citizens United, and End Citizens United is against it. The committee wants a constitutional amendment against the court’s decisions. There are many proofs that Citizens United used dark money and groups to influence the elections. End Citizens United is getting a petition signed by masses that demands the Congress to make the desired legislation. An alliance named “Ready for Hillary” is also gaining pace, and it would also support End Citizens United.
Soon after the formation of End Citizens United, about ten candidates of the Democratic Party joined End Citizens United. They included well-known people like Russ Feingold and Michael Bennet. Feingold is the Senator from Wisconsin while Bennet is the Senator from Colorado. Carbo is a member of End Citizens United. He said that the group is working on getting those candidates elected which would make desired changes in the laws. These candidates would initially raise voice against Citizens United, and later, reform the financial structure. Carbo also said that his group supports those candidates as well which were bothered by dark money groups and Koch Brothers. In 2016, End Citizens United formed a new section that worked for TV advertisement of candidates, polling, and direct mailers. The mission of End Citizens United is to get a constitutional amendment passed that ends Citizens United.
