Current Trends In End Citizens United Over Supreme Court Decision

End Citizens United is a nonprofit political action group that is funded by donors in the United States. Its focus is on electing finance reformers who would campaign to overturn the citizens united. This group is located in the heart of United States, in Washington, District of Columbia.

End Citizens United was founded on March 1, the year 2015 and up-to-date, it is operational. It has a rough estimate of 11-50 employees. End Citizens United is also known as the ECU. In the year 2010, the Supreme Court in the United States made a firm decision that influenced the changes in politics. They tabled the idea of allowing groups with special interest and wealth to use the money in the United States elections. This move was to bring in accountability in the political world in the United States. End Citizens United’s main role is to minimize the effect of corporate dollars in the political campaigns. The mission thereof is to end any big money in political campaigns, and electing a responsible campaign finance team of champions to spearhead the state ballot measures and bring the matter to a national level.

It is important to note that campaigning is costly and that is why the End Citizens United comes into place to regulate the matter. What ECU does, is to bring together voters who are of the same mind to pool together finances, hence promoting campaign finance reforms. End Citizens United uses a solid strategy of preventing increased contributions from few corporations which receive donations from thousands of citizens. They have a big goal of raising $35 million within the 2018 cycle. This contribution comes from every person with an average amount of $14.

End Citizens United has active members from every state in the United States. Moreover, they are committed to endorsing firm candidates whom they believe support the ECU noble cause. It has endorsed senators like Cory Booker and Kirsten Gillibrand whom they believe demonstrated leadership skills and roles. Through a press statement, Tiffany Muller, the ECU president, thanked Senator Booker and said that the entire ECU group looks forward to working with him. Their daily devotion and partnerships are focused on reforming the broken political system in people’s common needs. Kirsten Gillibrand is the other individual that took a firm oath in advocating the transparency in the political process. Gillibrand announced that the influence of money in politics should be minimized and many voters agreed with that.

Betsy DeVos: From Michigan Difference Maker to Washington Elite

By now we all know that the political world is in complete upheaval. Some call the political change in the United States an evolution while others are hesitant to endorse it quite so much. The primary reason that politics is no longer ‘politics as usual’ is due to the fact that outsiders are now ruling the land. Donald Trump has ushered in an era of change and he’ll be uniquely focused on leading the United States away from longtime standards of operation. In order for President Trump to be successful in his quest, he’ll have to find help from other members of his administration and this means that outsiders are going to have to be brought in to help organize the change. Among these outsiders in the administration is Betsy DeVos, a Calvin College graduate who has been focused entirely on reforming the state of American education. Let’s learn more about DeVos in order to see what makes her tick and why her work will be pivotal tot he future of the country.

 

You don’t have to look far in order to find problems with the state of the American education system. In fact, the act of even looking will lead you to realize that something needs to be done. Betsy DeVos has become an icon within the education reform movement for conservatives and Republicans around the country. She has spent the better part of the past thirty years focused on making the work of Milton Friedman and the concept of school choice more popular than ever. School choice essentially argues that the government should not intervene in the role of education. DeVos, like many conservatives, believes that the role of education should belong to parents and private institutions with little to no government meddling. This, believe it or not, was once a fringe position. Now, thanks to DeVos hard work in Michigan, the position no longer exists solely on the fringe.

 

How did DeVos come to being a devout believer in school education? Well, she cites having school-age children as being one of her guiding factors. When Betsy and her husband Dick Devos were searching for a school for their children, they ended up going to the Potter’s House Christian School. This school was known for being part of the school choice movement as it serviced low-income families in a way that public education simply could not. DeVos immediately fell in love with the school, claiming that the environment was simply ‘electric’ with learning, excitement and understanding.

 

Since DeVos became a proponent of school choice, she has helped to lead the movement to 17 states around the country. Now, more than half of a million students are enrolled in private, school choice institutions. With DeVos finding this kind of success as a mere civilian, we can only assume that she’ll be significantly more successful with the might of the federal government at her back, much less the mandate of President Trump himself urging her to keep working.
