Know Why End Citizens United Is Screening Political Funding

The dynamics of politics are changing, and the political parties are no longer transparent with the way they handle their political campaigns. Many things are no longer brought to light in politics especially the funding aspect. If the economic health of any country is to get better, transparency in political funding has to be restored. It’s surprising that the modern politics and politicians are no longer focused on ideological competition and identity politics. Politics in many countries today are all about regular interaction with the electorate.

As a result, many political parties and their candidates have engaged in illegal funding. All they want is money without caring where this money comes from. As a way to find a lasting solution to this, End Citizens United was formed to get the truth about the campaign funding most politicians and political parties got.

The Supreme Court opted to open a Pandora’s Box on this issue in 2010. This means political candidates can get money or funding from any individual or organization without being limited to the amount they should get for their campaigns. With this moral crisis, politics have lost sanity, accountability, and credibility. There has to be someone willing to ask some hard questions on political funding, and that’s what End Citizens United is doing. Big money in politics highly contaminates and cripples the economic stability of a country quickly.

This movement can’t understand how the politicians could leave or breach the social contract they had with the electorate at the expense of their individualized or selfish politics. The political action movement has confirmed that many incumbents collaborate with the individuals with unclean hands and the dark cooperate world instead of championing the interests and needs of the private citizens. A noble campaign called Big Money 20 has been launched to discourage such politicians from being reelected. According to End Citizens United, any politician who has failed in safeguarding equitable health care doesn’t qualify for any political office.

This movement insists only the politicians who show exemplary commitment to social justice would be endorsed. This year, the political action movement endorsed in the Senate the challengers and incumbents who were committed to their ideologies. Some of the incumbents the End Citizens United endorsed include Jackie Rosen, Kate Porter, Mazie Hirono, Bob Casey, and Sheldon WhiteHouse. The political action movement used these endorsements to bring sanity to the political funding and campaigns, and also push for some amendments. The group says the politicians should be funded from the grassroots to facilitate oversight, and keep the politicians true to the interests of the electorate.

End Citizens United Continue To Target The Senate Seat Of Ted Cruz

The decision of Representative Beto O’Rourke to leave his seat on the House of Representatives and fight for the Senate seat currently held by incumbent Ted Cruz has been shown to be an impressive one. O’Rourke has been endorsed by the influential End Citizens United PAC which is battling to bring an end to the Citizens United decision of the Supreme Court which opened up the election campaign financing laws to Super PACs and wealthy donors with O’Rourke pledging not to take donations from special interest groups and Super PACs; O’Rourke’s platform of election finance reform actually mirrors the initial choices made by Ted Cruz in 2010 when he unexpectedly took a seat in the Texas Senate with the backing of the Tea Party’s grassroots support.

Beto O’Rourke and End Citizens United are hoping the recent poor performance of Ted Cruz following the end of his Presidential election campaign in 2016 will continue to have a negative effect on his polling levels which have seen the Democrat slash an 18 point deficit to just eight points according to End Citizens United. One of the areas O’Rourke is looking to build on his performance in cutting the lead of Cruz over the course of the coming months is by getting his platform of campaign finance reform across to individuals in Texas who are largely unaware of his stand on many different areas of concern.

A recent End Citizens United poll on endcitizensunited.org placed Cruz on 45 percent and O’Rourke at 37 percent as the PAC sought to assist the Democrat in overturning what was once an 18 point lead for Cruz. In a similar poll, the position of O’Rourke in terms of his refusal to allow financing from Super PACs and special interest groups was explained and saw the Democrat take a two-point lead over Cruz when the platform was explained to voters.

Beto O’Rourke is also looking to extend his reach by making it clear his position on campaign financing is different to that of Ted Cruz who has taken in a reported $1.3 million from corporate PACs who received a hefty tax break in the latest round of regulations introduced under the leadership of President Trump. Beto O’Rourke is hoping to push forward with his own choice not to accept any assistance from non-traditional PACs such as End Citizens United which caps donations at just $5,000 in a bid to make sure any donor does not have the power to push undue influence on politicians because of their financial backing.
