It's just pure politics from the right.
When the Biden admin does something they ostensibly want, the immediate reaction is to find something tangential to complain about.
Here we are with vaccines crushing COVID, test positivity at its lowest in a year, deaths falling, masks coming off and people are UPSET?
It's true: the denier-fearmongers DO NOT want the pandemic to end.
It appears most conservatives, myself included, just want the states to follow the CDCs recent findings and drop all mask mandates. We are frustrated that now the CDC is saying masks are no longer necessary for vaccinated people but localities like Washington DC still demand masks.
It appears to me that if “the science” and “experts” that mostly the Democrats have been saying to listen to for the past year+ are now being ignored by those same Democrats that COVID was a bit more political than was let on.
