The House Freedom Caucus wants looser party control on the floor. This is what would happen if they got it. - The Washington Post: "The authors show that, from the 109th to 111th Congress, or between 2005 and 2010, House members proposed 7,250 amendments for consideration under structured rules. Of these, only one-third (or 2,440 amendments) actually reached the floor.
That’s a lot of demand. Allowing House members to introduce amendments freely — and to have lengthy debates and votes, as the Senate does — would likely bring the House to a halt."
