As Tengrain at Mock Paper Scissors points out, this Republican lawmaker "wins the Rubio Award For Excellence In Mindlessly Repeating A Talking Point."

Rep. Jena Powell, guess which party, is introducing legislation to stop the wildly popular Ohio Vaccine Lottery because she claims it's a "waste of taxpayer money."

CNN's New Day host Brianna Keillar pointed out to her that the lottery costs 9 cents per Ohioan and may gain herd immunity for the state. It's cheaper than ventilators, death, and economic shutdowns...JENA.

Ohio already has a regular lottery that has provided $26 billion to Ohio K-12 schools since its inception in 1974.

Newsweek reports that "The $5 million in prize money will come from federal COVID-19 relief funds that the state has already received."

Really, Jena. This is a poor excuse for getting on the national news. Buh bye.
