I would like you to take note of the fact that these companies show up over and over in CAFRs and investment funds. Composite govt appears to own majority shares.
Which reminds me on how the Council on Foreign Relations has far, far too much influence on our government and it needs to stop. I like this guy's straight forward presentation.

I thought a bit of review of what helped create the so-called "box". At least more recently. This is interesting.
This came about, with many changes. Including federal money and guidelines. Even an agency "independent" of the govt. This was supposedly, in part, a reaction to the 2000 elections.

Help America Vote Act
quote:
To be eligible for federal funding, states must submit a plan describing how payments will be used and distributed, provisions for voter education and poll worker training, how to adopt voting system guidelines, performance measures to determine success (including goals, timetables, responsibilities, and criteria), administrative complaint procedures, and the committee who helped develop the state plan.
Each year the state receives federal funding they must submit a report to the EAC detailing a list of expenditures, the number of and types of voting equipment obtained with the funds, and an analysis and description of the activities funded.


Election Assistance Commission
quote:
In 2003, Congress appropriated $1.5 billion for HAVA. The General Services Administration distributed most of the $650 million permitted under Title I of HAVA, but the remainder was earmarked for the EAC to disburse. The funds languished because the commissioners were not confirmed until 9 Dec. 2003; the law had required that they be in place by 26 Feb. 2003.
In its 2004 budget, Congress again allocated $1.5 billion to fund HAVA. By January 2004, the EAC had no permanent offices or budget, even though it was required to publish state election reform plans in the Federal Register before money for new voting equipment could be disbursed to the states. In 2011, United States Representative Gregg Harper introduced a bill to end the EAC and transfer some of its authority to the Federal Election Commission.



Federal Election Commission
quote:
The Federal Election Commission (FEC) is an independent regulatory agency that was founded in 1975 by the United States Congress to regulate the campaign finance legislation in the United States. It was created in a provision of the 1975 amendment to the Federal Election Campaign Act. It describes its duties as "to disclose campaign finance information, to enforce the provisions of the law such as the limits and prohibitions on contributions, and to oversee the public funding of Presidential elections."

Membership

The Commission is made up of six members, who are appointed by the President of the United States and confirmed by the United States Senate.
Each member serves a six-year term, and two seats are subject to appointment every two years.[1] By law, no more than three Commissioners can be members of the same political party, and at least four votes are required for any official Commission action. As a consequence, the organization was regularly deadlocked with a 3 -3 vote and it took no action on potentially illegal campaigning despite recommendations of its own counsel. [2]
The Chairmanship of the Commission rotates among the members each year, with no member serving as Chairman more than once during his or her term.

Criticism

Critics of the FEC, including campaign finance reform supporters such as Common Cause and Democracy 21, have complained that it is a classic example of regulatory capture where it serves the interests of the ones it was intended to regulate.

quote:
Sumner learned that in 2003 the New Hampshire State Senate sneaked an extraneous amendment into an unrelated bill, HB 627, pertaining to defining domicile to comply with a Help America Vote requirement.

In other words, in a bill about residency requirements for voter registration, suddenly, magically, and out of thin air, an amendment appeared to exclude ballots from New Hampshire right to know law.

So is how little we know about these companies and systems. We know this due to HR 1207 which despite overwhelming support didn't make it, but made enough noise to get something.

In all honesty I see very few "real" people defend "big banks". However, I see plenty of the "1%" do it, in some form.
I believe in the "truism" of following the money. Not always easy to do, but it will be revealing.
Several major issues do need to be on a top priority list for the avg citizen, but I don't see that happening as it should. (This is one of them.)
