The nature of American politics had changed from what it used to be when the United States of America gained its independence. Power to elect leaders has shifted from the patriotic citizens to a few wealthy individuals who use their money and influence to sway American politicians at their bidding. The change has come about due to critical changes in the United States of America Constitution back in 2010, something that is threatening American Nationals. For this reason, some members of the public have formed a pact by the name End Citizens United that seeks to oust politicians who do not have the agenda of the citizens in mind.
With the political action committee (PAC) being led by a five-member bench, it has gained momentum by seeking financial aid from everyday citizens, finances that will then be used to propel the agenda of the group forward. By supporting many self-conscious leaders, the End Citizens United plans to decrease the power that most political billionaires in America wield today.Besides, the political action committee believes that it is its elected representatives that will help the association change the constitution so as to suit the needs of the American people better. Although the above mentioned is easier said than done, it might come to fruition when a vast majority of elected leaders have some sort of affiliation with End Citizens United. Presently, End Citizens United is only interested with leaders hailing from the Democratic Party, mainly because this society believes that it is the politicians from this political power that have the interest to alleviate the plight of low-income Americans in mind. PAC also has partnered with some good, wealthy and influential leaders to see to it that the 2010 constitution amendments are re-done.
Some months before the just concluded 2016 American national elections, PAC had raised not less than two million dollars with its aim being a whopping ten million dollars. PAC used its money to assist a select few aspiring senators, and House leaders advance their campaigns. Apart from individual donations, End Citizens United relies on polling, TV advertisements and direct mailers as a way of raising funds.
Also, PAC has presented its agenda to the courts time and again, a move that has not borne much fruit. However, End Citizens United is determined today more than ever to bring down American leaders who allow wealthy billionaires push their agenda through them. From the on-going onslaught, it is only a matter of time before the power to elect leaders comes back to members of public of the United States of America.
Billionaire philanthropist George Soros and many of his close friends and associates involved with Democratic Party politics will be congregating in DC for a multi-day group meeting meant to answer questions about the results of the election and how liberal groups and donors should proceed now.
The pow wow being held in the Mandarin Oriental is the first official grouping of these powerful individuals in the Democratic Party. Of most importance is how Democrats will react to a Trump presidency on Time.com.
Most observers and attendees are predicting that Dems will come out guns blazing in order to delay and obstruct as much of Trump’s agenda as they can. Democrats are loathe to see many of the achievements they have made over the past 8 years collapse under a Trump presidency.
One of the main Obama programs that will be under attack is the massive expansion of healthcare, aka Obamacare on Biography. Millions of Americans now depend on the government subsidy to afford their healthcare. In addition many Americans fear losing protections against denial for existing conditions.
The Democratic Alliance is considered the vanguard of all groups opposing the Trump agenda at http://www.nytimes.com/topic/person/george-soros. While they have only existed as an official organization since 2005 they are one of the heavy hitters in Democratic fundraising today. They have donated nearly half a billion dollars to all kinds of think tanks, non profits and Democratic party races and measures.
George Soros is among the most generous donors in the group- with roughly 25 million dollars in donations under his belt. He is and was considered one of Clinton’s strongest allies and gave generously to her campaign as well. He was vehemently opposed to many in the ultra right wing Republican camp.
Soros typically does not attend all meetings of the Democratic Alliance so him showing up in person is considered a very big deal among party elites and those in the know. Likely he will play a key role in setting the agenda for the next 2 years before elections.
