End Citizens United: Establishing their Name In The World

Before 2015, no one had heard about End Citizen United. However, after its establishment in August 2015, the Group has garnered great attention from the public. This is because they have a clearly defined goal: overturning the Supreme Court ruling passed in 2010.

 

How was the group going to achieve that? They are going to collect signatures and raising $25 million towards the agenda.

 

The question is; why did they wait until 2015 to start the campaign? The reason is so as to get Democrats and the liberals elected who will support the agenda for reversing the Supreme Court ruling.

 

The group seems to have achieved great success because in only one month they were able to raise $2 million.

 

Background

 

In 2010, the Supreme Court overturned the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act that prohibited the use of Soft money in the election. The Supreme Court was providing a ruling on a case presented by the Citizen United. The PAC wanted the court to reverse the Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act clause that prohibited ‘electioneeirng communications.’ Even though the Supreme Court upheld the law on advocacy ads, they changed the soft money law.

 

The law states that the corporation and committees were not allowed to raise money or spend money that was not subject to federal limits. According to the End Citizens United, the ruling would adversely affect the elections.

 

They raised concerns that the election will no longer be free and fair. This is robbing the American people their Democratic right. By reversing the law, the billionaires now had the chance to influence the elections to their favor.

 

The primary goal of the End Citizens United is to raise money to influence the Congress to overturn the Supreme Court ruling.

 

The first agenda of the group is to have people elected who support the vision. That is why they endorsed 11 Democrat candidates. They will then raise the issue of money to be a national priority and to advance their agenda they will use the grassroots members. End Citizens United greatest supporters are the grassroots activists.

 

The ultimate goal of the campaign is to have a constitutional amendment, and by the end of 2015, 325,000 people had already signed the petition. After partnering with ‘Ready for Hilary,’ the group received $4 million more emails.

 

While the desire to have a constitutional amendment is genuine, the dream may be far-fetched according to the critics. There has not been a constitutional amendment since 1992. Despite having the influence, it will hard to get the Congress to amend the constitution.

 

They can, however, be commended for providing the public with information on the Supreme Court ruling. The group has also kept the pressure on the Supreme Court and the political leaders not to make the situation worse.

Let’s Have Dinner at The Copa Star….Hospital!

Yes, the best five star restaurant in town is in a hospital, the Copa Star. Operated by the D’Or network of hospitals, the Copa Star is the brainchild of Jorge Moll, the director of D’Or. It is very much unlike other hospitals. It’s not only the fact that the restaurant was designed by and world-renowned chef and offers gourmet meals. It’s the fact that when you enter the lobby, you are faced with stylish, plush sofas and a grand piano. There is artwork by Japan’s Yakuta Toyota throughout the hospital.

Luxury is the key word for Copa Star. Located on Copacabana beach at Rua Figueiredo de Magalhães, it is a five-story luxury hospital that caters to one and all, and is laden with luxurious accommodations.

The patient rooms are not just sterile hospital rooms. They are suites with accommodations for guests. The patient can operate and control the drapes, the temperature, the lighting, and many other aspects of the room from the bed with the use of an electronic tablet.

On that same tablet, the patient can talk with the staff, the nurses, and even video conference with the doctor. The doctor can, in turn, display the patient’s latest test results and converse with the patient though the tablet. This is quite a change from waiting for the doctor to visit.

There are 155 patient suites and 59 intensive care units. In intensive care, the patients are given a video portal to the outside world that they can control. They can view live scenes at the beach, in the corridors of the hospital, and on the street if they prefer. This is done so that the isolation of ICU is given a back seat to the patient’s desire not to be alone.

There are nine state of the art operating rooms with high tech robotic aids, MRI’s in the same room for ease of viewing the progress of the operation, and many other amenities for the doctor as well as the patient.

In building the hospital, a new method of construction was achieved due to the very small space for the large construction machinery. They developed a new standard in concrete construction that allows a fifty per cent savings in energy expenses compared to other buildings of the type.

Copa Star is just the beginning, says Jorge Moll. Rede D’Or plans to open similar hospitals in Sao Paulo and Brasilia as well. They already operate a number of hospitals in Brazil. But, alas, there is only one Copa Star to visit for now.

Eventually, Copa Star will concentrate on cardiology and neurology, but will still accept patients of all types — and those who just want a good meal at the five star restaurant.
