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 ...

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 Announces Run For House Assistant Democratic Leader
WASHINGTON, DC – House Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn (D-SC) today is sending a letter to Democratic colleagues announcing his intention to run for Assistant Democratic Leader in the 115th Congress.  Below is the text of the letter. Dear Democratic Colleague:             I write to respectfully ask for your vote and support to continue serving as Assistant Democratic Leader in the 115th Congress of the U.S. House of Representatives.             Over the past several days, we have engaged in a great deal of introspection.  The conversations and discussions I have had with many of you have been instructive and constructive. We must continue those discussions and we need to do so on a much more frequent and inclusive basis.             We must start by advancing a bold vision for a 21st century economy that is worthy of America’s working men and women.  And we must develop ways to express that vision in words and phrases that are under
HBCUs are America’s National Treasures
WASHINGTON - U.S. House Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn (SC) published the following op-ed on the Diverse Issues In Higher Education today: The legacy of historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) is one of significant courage and steadfast determination. HBCUs are among America’s national treasures that must be preserved and protected for future generations. HBCUs are some of the most important historic educational institutions in our country. Many of them have buildings and sites on their campuses that have existed for over a century. Unfortunately, many of the historic buildings and sites on these campuses have deteriorated over the years and are at risk of being lost completely if not preserved and protected. In 1998, at the request of the Congressional Black Caucus, the U.S Government Accountability Office (GAO) surveyed 103 HBCU campuses to identify the historically significant sites on these campuses and project the cost of restoring and preserving
Clyburn Statement On Recent Trump Administration Appointment Of Steve Bannon and Nomination of Jeff Sessions
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn (D-SC) released the following statement today:   “Donald Trump’s recent staffing and nomination announcements are a sad but predictable continuation of his spiteful, divisive campaign,” said Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn.  “Steve Bannon has taken pride in giving voice and an online home to radical white-supremacist groups.  There should be no place in the White House for his brand of misogynistic, bigoted, anti-Semitic and xenophobic normalcy. “Senator Sessions has faced serious allegations throughout his career and was rightly rejected for a federal judgeship because of them.  His civil rights record is appalling and should disqualify him from Senate confirmation. “Together the Bannon appointment and nomination of Senator Sessions for Attorney General represent a frightening return to a dark and dangerous past for minority communities in Donald Trump’s America.  They threaten the civil
