Vaccine sweepstakes are unjustifiable use of taxpayer dollars

How outrageously unjustifiable to use hard-earned taxpayer funds for five state sweepstakes of $1 million each for those who have been vaccinated.

Is that really an incentive, especially with such poor odds, to others who should have better reasons to get a vaccine? And why, if such stupidity must prevail, such a large amount to one single winner, who may do nothing more than use it as a down payment for a Porsche for the benefit of just him- or herself? There are certainly better ways to use these dollars ... perhaps one being to provide resources to help improve the IQ of those who have come up with such irresponsible schemes.

Let’s remember this at the voting booth.
