Expert gives Congress solution to vote machine cyber-security fears: Keep a paper backup

Got in there before me on the Tom Scott video.

The one they're talking about here is "Hey, we keep a paper trail of what the machine did, so it's ok!"

NO. NO IT'S NOT OK! The paper trail will say what the machine SAYS it did. If the machine is compromised you can't trust the paper trail either. This does not solve the problem in any way.
