The Democratic party repeated its demand for a $1billion bill to be put to the House to ensure cyber security of US voting systems after the indictments issued by special counsel Robert Mueller named 13 Russians having possibly interfered with the 2016 Presidential election.
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi called out President Donald Trump for not wanting to present a “strategic plan to confront the Russians.”
The Democrats were joined in their calls for protection of the 2018 midterm elections by Republican Senator Jeff Flake from Arizona as he said: “It was clear it was directed in favour of one candidate. Whether it was dispositive or not, that’s still a question.”
“But there’s going to be a lot more pressure on the administration to actually move on this.”

When asked about the Democratic proposal, House Speaker Paul Ryan said that “we need to follow the facts and work to protect the integrity of future elections.”
At the same time, US President Donald Trump reacted to General McMaster who had told reporters during a Security Conference in Germany that the Mueller Report indeed pointed to Russian meddling, when he said that: “General McMaster forgot to say that the results of the 2016 election were not impacted or changed by the Russians and that the only Collusion was between Russia and Crooked H, the DNC and the Dems. Remember the Dirty Dossier, Uranium, Speeches, Emails and the Podesta Company!”

Facts show The LIBERALS worked with the Russian, took Russian money and etc…
So isn't Liberals demanding $$$$$ to protect against what they were caught actually doing. So this is like hiring the fox to guard the Hen House he emptied.
Yes we need a NON-INTERNET voting tracking system to protect against the Outside.
But we need more INSIDE Protections to keep the certain ANTI-USA Political groups from Fake Voting.
Yes we need Campaigns be held responsible for what they do.
Yes we need the Media be held to the same honesty standards they use to attack Politicians.
Media which has OUTSIDE funding, owners/controllers and a political position MUST openly state so. Because OPT-ED, and Fake News is not reporting. They also should lose some lawsuit protections for being 1 sided.
We need to pass a National VOTER ID Law with a US Citizenship check.
We KNOW to do anything related to the Government in the USA requires an State ID already.
But if you are an illegal some states (eg California, NC and etc..) looks the other way when issusing State IDs.
We need to track voter rolls for Inter-state and infra-state voters to eliminate multiple Voter voting.
To guarantee 1 person 1 vote and stop people with multiple properties and addresses in several states.
Dead people and Felony convicted people serving time or on probation must be stricken from voter rolls.
We need have Gov Officials verify bedridden nursing home people are the ones voting, not the staff.
We also must have absolute serialized tracking control of Absentee Ballots at the STATE Level, and not county/city levels.
We need to do away with backdoor, $10,000 dinners and company donations if we are to guarantee 1 persons vote is equal to another.
Cap donations at $25 per voter directed to a pacific candidate. All left over funds become State/Federal funds used to strengthen the USA Election system. NEVER to be placed in the General US Budget fund.
These are just a few I have seen in 45+ years of voting that need addressing.
