If you have been paying a modicum of attention to the current political climate, then you likely realized just how divided that the nation is. To put things into perspective, President Donald Trump has a historic low approval rating and the tax package that he helped to force-feed through Congress was rejected by the vast majority of Americans in the United States. Despite the historic dislike for both Trump and his policies, today’s GOP continues to ram through their agenda — despite the effects, it has on regular every-day Americans. Despite all of the negativity that President Trump and the modern GOP are bringing to America, there are groups dedicated to shining a spotlight on their impact. End Citizens United, a political action committee led by president Tiffany Muller, has set their sights on the newly passed GOP tax bill (scam).

Tiffany Muller and End Citizens United have been busy in their efforts to fight back against dark money, special interests and corporate lobbying in Washington D.C. The political action committee was created in order to fight toward introducing a constitutional amendment to overturn the SCOTUS decision regarding Citizens United. Citizens United is a propaganda machine driven by the GOP to fight for legislation that gives mega-donors the ability to influence politics. This is obviously a huge problem in an American government that already ignores the majority of its constituents. Despite the fact that the GOP’s newly passed tax scam is not related to Citizens United, it still falls within the purview of End Citizen United’s mission statement to give American voters the ability to have their voice be heard.
The GOP Tax Bill has been under attack from moderates and progressives around the country. End Citizen United added their sizable voice to the conversation with a statement released by Tiffany Muller. Muller says, “Just in time for the holidays, Republicans have delivered a gift-wrapped bill to their mega-donors.” Muller goes on to paint the accurate picture that this tax bill was largely just a huge boon to corporations in the form of tax breaks and donor openings. The bill once even tried to destroy the Johnson Amendment, one of the few laws in place that prevents churches from becoming dark money funneling machines. Muller goes on to say, “It’s a shameful display of the rigged system in Washington.”
Every year End Citizens United compiles a list called the Big Money 20. This list includes the biggest corporate mega-donors in Washington D.C. 17 members of the Big Money 20 spent nearly $12 million to try and get the tax bill pushed through into law. You can bet that these donors are going to be paid out handsomely for their hard work in screwing over America’s middle class.
