Porter County, Indiana... Does it still have 0% of the vote counted?

I saw this Twitter thread called out on a different forum. WITAF is going on in Porter County,supposedly a Democratic stronghold? How many voters are there and how many votes did the Dem Sen Joe Donnelly "lose" by?


Kansas City! I'm so sorry! I can do rain or I can cold!

But I can't protest in both!

Good luck to all of you, you're in my heart...

How's the weather at your protest?

Since Gillum conceded last night, is it still possible

That a close final tally will still trigger a re-count?

I'm worried that he was too quick to give his concession speech...

Do you know who Dan Best is?

Dan Best was the HHS Drug Pricing Czar. (https://www.hhs.gov/blog/2018/10/30/answering-your-questions-about-the-ipi-drug-pricing-model.html)

On Tuesday of this week, Dan posted this on the HHS.gov blog:

Last week, as part of fulfilling President Trump’s promise to lower drug prices and cut down on foreign governments’ freeriding, HHS put forth a new way of paying for physician-administered drugs within Medicare, the International Price Index (IPI) Model.

The model aims to:

Reduce the price Medicare pays for a set of costly drugs to closer to what other countries pay.
Remove perverse incentives that encourage the prescribing of more expensive drugs.
Reduce physician burden associated with “buy and bill” by enabling private sector vendors to play a larger role in the purchase and distribution of these drugs.

To help people understand how the IPI model will accomplish these goals, we thought it would be useful to answer some questions that have been asked since the model’s release.

By Thursday morning, Nov 1st, Dan Best was dead!

WTF happened to Dan Best, a man who was about to implement a plan that would make our medicines cheaper...

Kansas City, Missouri voters! KC Election Board...

Website says it closes at noon. [ETA: but poll workers says they are open til 2.00pm.]

Also, other voters said Brush Creek and Center High School Absentee Voting locations have really long lines - Union Station has shorter line!

Also, Union Station validates parking if you park in the garage to the west of Union Station!
