The recently approved GOP tax bill has created panic among the common people with its target and where the Trump Administration is directing. End Citizens United, the group that fights uncontrolled money in the campaign system and politics, expressed its disappointment in the new tax bill that is against the wishes of the electorates. Earlier, ECU had campaigned against the tax bill and exposed how it is going to affect the common people while it grants gifts to mega-donors. Many financial analysts have already communicated the dangers associated with the tax bill that is brought by the Trump Administration. The bill is expected to make far-reaching consequences to the ordinary people and the American economy in the coming years.
The President of the PAC, Tiffany Muller released a statement, after the Senate passed the bill, with disappointment and grief. She said that just before the holidays, the GOP members served a gift-wrapped bill to the mega-donors of their party. It was a shameful act that showed the extent of the rigged system in the country, in which political parties get funding and sponsorship from dark money groups, and in return, the parties introduce legislation that benefits the interest groups. Muller specified that the bill is a massive blow to the middle-class citizens of the United States – the backbone of the country.
She further added that the voters would not forget this deceive of GOP members who ignored the electorate. Since the 2018 elections are nearing, End Citizens United will take the message to the people and make the GOP members responsible for reckless acts. Muller continued that seventeen GOP representatives who are targeted by ECU by a campaign called Big Money 20 have voted for the bill. An investigation of ECU has shown that these representatives have collected $11.7 million in the form of benefits for facilitating the tax reform possible. ECU confirmed that the Big Money 20 is a set of 20 most notorious representatives known for backing dark money groups. The PAC started campaigns to defeat these members in the upcoming elections.
End Citizens United is a Political Action Committee established to fight the consequences big money makes in the politics. A group of liberal political activists established it in 2015 to refrain the money groups from interfering campaigns by pumping money. The PAC wants a meaningful campaign reform amendment to restrict the dark money groups and make it more representational to the voice of the ordinary people. With that mission, it wants to elect maximum reform champions to the houses of the Congress to introduce the amendment. The PAC actively touches the American people through social media and mobilize them to be part of a historical move that brings back the ultimate power of voice to the people.
