Description

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel discovered that leaders in the Wisconsin Legislature were using a parliamentary trick — a phantom public hearing that was never actually held — to block a vote on an overwhelmingly popular and bipartisan bill aimed at helping cancer patients afford ruinously expensive chemotherapy medications. The articles showed that leaders were not telling the truth when they said they were blocking the bill because the members of their caucuses didn't support it.
