What Elephant?

 ("The Unbelievable Stupidity of Ending Global Covid Aid")

We're done with this pandemic." Unfortunately, the pandemic disagrees.

You see the pandemic can't be reasoned with, can't be bribed, can't be advised to respect borders. It refuses to be intimidated or interrogated. There is no way to merely request it to retreat, no method of demanding it just magically disappear (as one person suggested it would).   

The pandemic charts its own course, makes its own decisions unless we compel it to do otherwise. It has spent two years teaching us lessons of battle that we ignore at our continued peril.

Denial of the elephant in the room is simply not a defense. It just means there is a $15 billion dollar mess in the middle of the House floor that needs to be cleaned up.
