The Missing Word -- FILIBUSTER

-- by Dave Johnson

Republicans block pay discrimination bill | Politics | Reuters,

On a 56-42 vote, mostly Democratic supporters of the bill fell short of the needed 60 in the 100-member Senate to clear a Republican procedural hurdle and move toward passage of the bill.
"a Republican procedural hurdle." Wow, that's some fancy wording in this "news" article. In fact the wording is designed to block the information about what happened here from reaching the reader.

What happened here is that the Republicans FILIBUSTERED the bill that would bring fair pay to women for the same work.
