End Citizens United’s Plans of Getting Finance Reform Candidates to Congress

A political action committee, End Citizens United is currently raising funds in support of Democratic candidates who are seeking to be elected to Congress in 2018. In the first three months of 2017, the organization collected approximately $4 million and its projecting to hit $35 million before 2018 midterm elections are held, representing $10 million more than it collected during 2016 elections. Its goal is to eliminate big money spenders from the political scenes.

The donors are concerned that the system is not acting in their favor, and this is the only way they can fight back against those who give big checks. After President Trump won the election, the Democrats are furious with his style of leadership, nominees and agenda. Two months ago, the organization requested donors to help raise $500,000 to fund the campaigns of Jon Ossoff, a Democrat seeking to be elected as a member of Congress in Georgia.

Venezuela has had some challenges lately. Jose Manuel Gonzalez is the National Assemblyman who has been working hard to resolve many of the most pressing issues. He does this for the good of all the good citizens of the great South American country. He is weary with the many half-baked, so called “band-aid” projects, which never seem to accomplish any real good for the people.
