==Issues==

===Controversy===
+
====Denies pressuring Metra CEO====
+
Rush denied allegations in August 2013 that he pressured former Metra CEO Alex Clifford to cut a $50,000 check to a national organization he had recommended to monitor minority hiring for a massive South Side rail project.<ref name="metra">[http://www.suntimes.com/news/21764897-418/rep-rush-angrily-denies-pressuring-ex-metra-ceo-alex-clifford.html ''Chicago Sun Times'' "Rep. Rush angrily denies pressuring ex-Metra CEO Alex Clifford" Accessed August 7, 2013]</ref>
+
 
+
“I have never, ever — during this whole process — attempted to steer, attempted to invite, attempted to involve anybody into receiving one red cent — not one red cent,” Rush told reporters.<ref name="metra"/>
+
 
+
Rush’s name surfaced in July 2013 when Clifford, in explosive testimony before the Regional Transit Authority (RTA) board, said he was forced out at Metra because he resisted political pressure from high-ranking Illinois politicians.<ref name="metra"/> The deepening scandal has already resulted in four Metra board members resigning, including Mayor Rahm Emanuel forcing out the city’s only representative, Larry Huggins.<ref name="metra"/>
+
 
+
On August 6, 2013, Rush blasted a news report that said he recommended Metra pay $50,000 to the National Black Chamber of Commerce, an organization the congressman recommended be brought in to oversee minority participation in the Englewood flyover project, construction of a rail bridge. Clifford testified before the RTA that he refused to send a check because, among other things, he couldn’t figure out what the chamber of commerce would actually be doing on the project.<ref name="metra"/>
+
 
+
===Political positions===
+
====Fiscal Cliff====
+
{{Support vote}}
+
Rush voted for the fiscal cliff compromise bill, which made permanent most of the Bush tax cuts originally passed in 2001 and 2003 while also raising tax rates on the highest income levels.  He was 1 of 172 Democrats that voted in favor of the bill. The bill was passed in the House by a 257/167 vote on January 1, 2013.<ref>[http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2012/roll659.xml ''U.S. House'' "Roll Call Vote on the Fiscal Cliff" Accessed January 4, 2013.]</ref>
