Democrats in the Arizona House of Representatives staged a protest of sorts this week — voting against all bills for the last two days.

They said it's an effort to shine a light on what they call a new unwritten rule that no bill will be voted on without the support of the majority of Republican representatives.

Democratic leader Andres Cano has been speaking out about it, but now, GOP leaders are saying this has always been the case. 

The Show talked with Ben Giles, who explained what's happening.
