CHICAGO — U.S. Representative Bobby L. Rush (D-Ill.) issued the following statement after President Trump’s decision to pull out of the landmark, 195-signatory Paris Climate Accord: “The United States, the world’s largest economy and second-largest greenhouse gas polluter, will not dissolve the 195-nation pact with the decision to pull out. However, this action sets off a chain of events that will have profound effects on the planet. The Paris Climate Accord is a historic international agreement that brought the world together to put a halt to increasing global emissions and address the real effects of climate change. “The president’s decision puts the U.S. at odds with nearly every other nation on earth. In walking away from this agreement, the President is denying scientific truths and removing safeguards that protect our health and our environment. “The Paris Accord respects our global responsibility to make our planet habitable for future generations.

Rush Statement on President Trump’s FY18 Budget Proposal
WASHINGTON — U.S. House Representative Bobby L. Rush (D-Ill.) released the following statement on President Trump’s budget proposal for fiscal year 2018: “President Trump is waging an all-out attack on the families and individuals who voted him into office. ‘A New Foundation for American Greatness’ is a budget proposal that cuts deeply into programs for the poor, from health care and food stamps to student loans and disability payments. My constituents are in need of many of the services and programs that Trump intends to severely reduce or eliminate. These funding cuts would create gaping holes in services to the needy and exacerbate existing budget woes in the State of Illinois. “The President plans to slash more than $800 billion from Medicaid in addition to removing $192 billion from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), essentially leaving thousands of children to go hungry in American households receiving assistance. The budget will also slice $27

Throughout America’s history, brave men and women, dedicated to protecting the American way of life, have left their families and friends to fight for the preservation of our democracy. Some have even made the ultimate sacrifice of giving their life, a gift we can never repay,” said Rep. Rush. “So, it is my honor to join citizens around the nation as we pause to honor the brave men and women who gave their best to our nation and salute all who have served our country around the world in the name of fr
Rush Statement on the Shooting Death of Xavier Joy
 “Words are too insufficient for the loss of life taking place in our city, Chicago. I am truly heartbroken to learn that my dear friend, Nykea Pippion-McGriff, lost her son, Xavier Joy. “As the parent of a son who was also killed by gun violence, I can empathize with Nykea’s family and all the families across my district and the Nation who have experienced this tragedy. No parent should have to experience a loss such as this. “Xavier recently returned home to serve his community. He was the type of young man that we all want our children to grow up to be and his life was taken while doing something so many Americans take for granted every day: returning home from work. “My thoughts and prayers are with Nykea’s family and the families across America who mourn those lost to senseless violence. “We deserve better. We are better.” ###
