Mike Bishop

The Big Money 20 are incumbents who represent the worst of Washington’s rigged system. They do the bidding of special interests like drug companies, Big Oil, Wall Street, and others with deep pockets while also voting to stack the deck in their favor – at the expense of the American people.

When it comes to choosing between the greed of his mega-donors or the needs of his constituents, Congressman Mike Bishop has chosen his mega-donors time and again.

  • In the pocket of mega-donors, Bishop helped lead the fight to repeal the ACA despite the damage it would do to Michigan families. This spring Bishop voted to repeal the Affordable Care Act despite the fact that 38,000 people in his district stood to lose their health care as a result of the repeal. Bishop’s vote came on the heels of over $800,000 in outside support from organizations such as the secret money group American Action Network that were pushing for repeal.
  • Bishop voted for the tax bill, the top priority for Republican mega-donors. It would raise taxes on 13 million Americans who earn less than $100,000 a year, while half of the benefits would go to the top one percent in the country.

The only way to stop this cycle of pay-to-play politics is to defeat the politicians who are bought by the special interests and rig the system in their favor. End Citizens United has made the Big Money 20 a priority for its $35 million campaign to throw these incumbents out of office and elect reformers who will put focus on all of us, not those who write the biggest checks.
