Big Money 20 is a list of politicians that accept near unlimited amounts of campaign contributions from wealthy corporations. The list is published and maintained by a political action committee called End Citizens United. The PAC intends to remove big money from politics and put the voting power back in the hands of the common citizen.
End Citizens United was created after a Supreme Court case ruled in favor of large political donations. According to End Citizens United, this hurt the democratic election system in a major way. The ruling expanded on the theory that corporations should be treated as people instead of companies. Post-ruling, corporations are permitted to donate large amounts of money to politicians in a non-translucent manner. The organization was founded in March of 2015.
End Citizens United goals are to elect pro-reform politicians, politicians that do not accept big money, and politicians that speak for the common citizen. End Citizens United is made up of hundreds of grassroots members, and they are all working to raise awareness of big money in politics.
