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 ...

The Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction announcedit could not come up with the minimum $1.2. trillion of deficit reduction. In an opinion piece in the Washington Post, Congressman Jim Clyburn recently wrote about the super committee saying, "the problem is finding the political will to bring it to conclusion. Although we are charged with finding at least $1.2 trillion in deficit reduction over the next 10 years, I agree with those who have said we ...

Clyburn Statement on Army Corps of Engineers Funding
Washington, DC – Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn today issued the following statement on Army Corps of Engineers Funding Announcements: “Yesterday, the Army Corps of Engineers announced its allocations of the funds provided in the omnibus appropriations bill for 2017, passed earlier this month.  I am pleased that $4.66 million is included to expand the Lake Marion Regional Water Agency.  These funds, combined with significant state and local funding, will extend the agency’s reach to Ridgeville, South Carolina in Dorchester County.  The WIIN Act, passed last year, authorized the expansion of this project, which will eventually serve the new Volvo site in Berkeley County.  The Volvo manufacturing facility is expected to create over 4,000 new jobs and is one of most significant economic development project for South Carolina in decades.  Without critical infrastructure like the Lake Marion water agency, companies like Volvo would locate elsewhere. “Additionally
The Mission of the Democratic Faith Working Group
Growing up in a church parsonage, the eldest son of a fundamentalist Christian minister, grounded me securely in faith and family. My dad’s sermons, which were based in Old Testament scriptures as often as they were in the New Testament, offered up pretty big doses of Judeo-Christian doctrines that still guide me today as Chair of the Democratic Faith Working Group (DFWG) in the United States House of Representatives. The Old Testament lesson found in Micah 6:8 calls upon the reader to do justice, be merciful and walk humbly. In Matthew 25:45 the reader is instructed that we are judged by the way we treat, “the least (among us).” These are the principles that guide the members of the DFWG. We are composed of significant strains of the great diversity of faiths across our nation and in our Caucus. Our values reflect these faiths, and our faith perspectives are the lenses through which we see the great challenges of our times. Whether the issues are combatting poverty, providing ac
Clyburn Statement on Trump's 'Election Integrity' Commission
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. House Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn released the following statement on the signing of an executive order establishing a Presidential Advisory Commission on ‘Election Integrity’ and Russian meddling: Clyburn statement:           “President Trump’s ‘Election Integrity’ Commission is an obvious attempt to stop the freefall his Administration is in as a result of his firing of FBI Director Comey and the ongoing investigation into his Administration’s ties to Russia.  It is worth noting that nothing in the executive order will address the very real influence that Russia had on our election.          “While I was troubled by Director Comey’s handling of the investigation into Secretary Clinton’s email server last year, I respect the need for law enforcement to be independent from political influence.  Whether true or not, President Trump, Attorney General Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rosenstein have crea
Clyburn Statement on Trump Budget Proposal
Washington, DC – Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn today issued the following statement on President Trump’s budget request for fiscal year 2018: “Budgets are about much more than dollars and cents. They are value statements, American values.  Today Donald Trump has once again shown us where his are.  He talks about improving our infrastructure, but his budget slashes billions of dollars from federal infrastructure funding.  For middle income Americans and those struggling in poverty, his budget proposes to slash billions from safety net programs they depend on; nursing home care, affordable health care, food and heating assistance and legal aid.  This budget is an attack on seniors, students, low-income families, and rural communities. “For South Carolina, the Trump Budget would be a disaster if enacted.  Eliminating most of the Department of Agriculture’s Rural Development programs cuts off the lifeline rural counties depend on.  This office funds schools,
