Clyburn Reacts to Newt Gingrich’s Food Stamps Remarks

Rep. James Clyburn, the highest-ranking African-American in Congress, swung back at former House speaker and White House hopeful Newt Gingrich for continuing to call President Obama the “food stamps president” while campaigning in Clyburn’s home state of South Carolina for this week’s GOP primary. “To say those kinds of things about the president of the United States, I think, not only tries to lower the office itself, but also denigrates those people who find themselves in need of food stamps,” Clyburn said on Fox News Tuesday. The South Carolina lawmaker ...

Clyburn: We're not locked in to sequester cuts

Democratic Rep. Jim Clyburn, who was a member of the failed congressional "supercommittee" to reduce the deficit, said Tuesday he would be open to redoing the automatic "sequester" cuts triggered by the committee's failure, noting that "I don't think that we are locked in to sequester being in its current format." Clyburn, in an interview with MSNBC's Chuck Todd, suggested he would be open to "redoing the sequester" as part of an agreement to extend and expand the payroll tax cut holiday set to expire at the end of the year. If it does expire, Americans making $50,000 per year would see a ...

WASHINGTON – U.S. House Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn (SC) delivered the following statement during debate on H.R. 295, which passed the House unanimously by voice vote (as prepared for delivery): “Mr. Speaker, I rise in support of H.R. 295, my bill to reauthorize the Historically Black Colleges and Universities Historic Preservation program.  This bill has been cosponsored by my colleagues in the Congressional Black Caucus and is broadly supported by all of our colleagues.  It received a unanimous vote in the House Natural Resources Committee earlier this year, and I thank all of my colleagues for their support. “As a former high school history teacher, I have worked during my tenure in Congress to preserve and protect our nation’s historic treasures.  Historically Black Colleges and Universities, commonly called HBCUs, are some of the most important historic educational institutions in our country.  Many of them have buildings and sites on their campuses th
Clyburn Statement on Passage of Gullah/Geechee Bill
WASHINGTON – U.S. House Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn today released the following statement on the Senate passage yesterday of H.R. 3004, a bill to extend the authorization of the Gullah/Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor Commission. The Commission was originally created by Congressman Clyburn’s legislation, passed in 2006, which created the Gullah/Geechee Cultural Heritage Corridor.  It is tasked with managing the Corridor in partnership with the National Park Service and dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of Gullah and Geechee history and culture.  The Commission’s authorization was set to expire in October. “Gullah/Geechee is a blend of African and European culture and traditions developed by former slaves living in isolation in the Sea Islands of the Carolinas, Georgia, and Florida.  I was proud to get legislation passed creating a Commission to preserve and protect the Gullah/Geechee culture, which is increasingly endangered and deserving o
Clyburn OP-ED: Democrats vs. Republicans on the Economy: It Is Not A Close Call
WASHINGTON – U.S. House Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn (SC) published the following op-ed on the Huffington Post today: Democrats v. Republicans on the Economy:  It is Not a Close Call             If our history were not so instructive about the catastrophic consequences that often flow from sophisticated campaigns of misinformation, I would probably be amused by the half truths and untruths that are being tossed around during this election season.  Democrats in general and President Barack Obama in particular are being blamed for everything that has gone wrong with our country’s economy over the last generation.               President Obama, our nation’s first African American President, is being viciously blamed by a few uninformed and misguided souls for all the maladies being experienced by black Americans. It is very clear, however, that over the last 35 years the American economy has fared much better under Democratic presidents than

In response to the above announcement Congressman Jim Clyburn released the following statement: “At the request of officials and representatives of Denmark-Olar School District, I was pleased to work with USDA in support of their application.  Schools are the anchors of our communities and provide the foundation our children need to secure a productive future.” Clyburn continued, “The state of disrepair in many of South Carolina’s rural schools has been well documented.  When completed, this facility will be a state of the art investment in Bamberg County’s children.” The loan USDA is offe
