End Citizens United: Fighting for What is Right

The article titled “As Health Care Vote Looms, Reports Reveal Senator Heller Received Over 8.8 Million From Big Money Pushing for ACA Repeal”, it states that End Citizens United received information that senior United States Senator who is from Nevada and part of the Republican party, Dean Arthur Heller, received 8.8 million dollars from a third party organization that would profit from a repeal of the Affordable Care Act. The repealing of the Affordable Care Act could lead to many citizens across America losing their coverage and that can lead to tax breaks and much more for the wealthy one percenters.

In Nevada specifically, close to 120,000 people could lose their health insurance coverage within the next 8 to 9 years. There have been many mega donors that have persuaded the Chamber of Commerce to repeal the Affordable Care Act. End Citizens United stated that the 1 percenters in America could receive tax breaks of around 240,000 to 250,000 dollars because the repealing of the Affordable Care Act would get rid of the taxes.. Tiffany Muller, who is the president of End Citizens United stated,”Senator Heller has a choice. He can either stand with Nevadans or he can stand with Big Money.” Many of the senators that have big money shoving millions of dollars their way are never going to stand up to these organizations.

End Citizens United is a very promising organization that wants to get rid of bug money influencing politicians to get their own interests out there. End Citizens United has been raising a good amount of money themselves, they have collected close to 4 million dollars during their first few months and they are expected to raise around 35 million dollars in 2018. There are an estimated 100,000 people that have contributed to this PAC. Ends Citizen United helped Democrat Jon Ossoff fill a Republican House seat in ATlanta by raising more than 4 million dollars for the special election. This political committee was able to work with many campaign finance groups so that they could persuade Republican senators who received donations from Betsy DeVos and her family to abstain from electing her to be on the Board of Education.
