House Speaker John Boehner has opened up the body, giving members the freedom to address all kinds of issues that previous speakers wouldn’t. For example, as part of its debate on the budget House,John, Boehner,freedomthis week, the House is looking at whether the military should sponsor NASCAR vehicles, if the Federal Communications Commission should reconsider its net neutrality rules and if Congress should prevent President Barack Obama from spending money on White House renovations, Politico reports.

Republicans and Democrats are introducing amendment after amendment to the budget bill – 403 by Tuesday morning. Many congressmen are embracing their freedom. But some Republicans are concerned that they’re priorities won’t be addressed.

For example Iowa Rep. Steve King is upset he won’t be able to attack Obamacare. “The speaker said ‘Let the House work its will.’ Well, the rules don’t allow the House to work its will,” he says.
