WASHINGTON — U.S. Representative Bobby L. Rush (D-Ill.) released a statement today after Speaker John Boehner announced his resignation:

“We are at a crossroads in Congress. There is a threat of yet another government shutdown and the leader of the House with a bipartisan approach to passing legislation is now stepping down.

“There are serious issues facing our country and Congress is suffering from extremist groups who are willing to run this country off the rails.

“I wish Speaker Boehner much success in his future endeavors.”
