House Blocks Bill Allowing Vote Recounts
Voting rights activists who hoped the federal government would help local governments pay for paper trails and audits for electronic voting machines have gone from elation to frustration as they watched Republicans who supported such a proposal in committee vote against bringing it to the House floor.

Thanks for the info auntie. It's nice to live in states that use some of the most up-to-date systems...

Come on, guys and gals, this is another example of Big Government paying for something that should not occur. If your State won't buy and process better voting machines, WHY should I be taxed to pay for YOUR STATE being cheap? That's the bottom line. Do you want to pay an additional tax that will go to someone else's State to pay that State for a recount? Not, me Babe! States have the responsibility (does anyone recognize that word?) to provide the best voting machines for their citizens. This "hanging chad" business is so "1950's" that it's ridiculous! Lobby YOUR State to provide better, more modern, up to date technology voting machines. It's YOUR State, so YOU pay extra taxes in YOUR State and leave me alone, since MY State already uses a modern method. Republicans were 100% correct on this one. Thankfully there must have been a sane member of that Committee.

Yep. Republicans have no problem throwing good money after bad when it suits their purpose. This didn't.

So the Republicans withdraw their support because the program was alread $50 million over budget before an election begins, and they are just protecting their future?
