When it comes to finally pushing away all of the influence that big money has been to exert on the world of politics, there are a number of citizens who would like to make the necessary changes. That is where groups like End Citizens United come into play. This political action committee is dedicated to target Republican Congressional candidates in the upcoming midterm elections.
To that end, they have created a group of the most egregious offenders on that side of the aisle. This list is known as the Big Money 20 and it includes some of the most well-known politicians in the country. Even Senator Ted Cruz (Texas) is not exempt from the ire of End Citizens United.
The political action committee believes that the group they have targeted is most responsible for the current state of affairs. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin and Dean Heller of Nevada are also among the prominent names listed.

Americans who are tired of watching politicians prioritize special interests over their most crucial needs are coming out to support these sorts of committees. Instead of allowing the nation’s elected officials to serve their needs before considering the needs of others, it is time for groups like End Citizens United to finally put an end to the chicanery.
According to wikipedia.org, politicians have been able to accept donations that lead directly to decisions that do not benefit the American people in any meaningful way for far too long. Instead of passing legislation that is meant to benefit the people who are pulling the strings, these strings are now going to be cut so that the general public can have the peace of mind that they deserve.
This political action committee set a simple goal for itself: raise $10 million more than what was raised during the 2016 elections. This places their goal at a whopping $35 million. End Citizens United is quietly confident about their chances to unseat some of the Big Money 20 because so many of them are facing an uphill road to re-election.
In order to achieve their fundraising goals, the committee must rely on a bevy of donations from their 3 million members. Donations are capped at $5,000 per donor but this is not expected to put a damper on their initiative. Reform messaging is only going to take on added importance in the years to come and thanks to groups like End Citizens United, politicians who are accepting money under false pretenses are being placed on notice.
