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 Praises $13 Million in Funding from the Rural Energy Savings Program for South Carolina
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Rural Utilities Service announced the initial awards of funding from the Rural Energy Savings Program.  This program was created by legislation included in the most recent Farm Bill, signed into law in 2014.  It was originally introduced by Congressman Jim Clyburn in 2010, when it passed the House of Representatives. Through the program, the Rural Utilities Service makes loans to electric cooperatives and other utilities which they use to then lend to consumers for energy efficiency improvements to their homes.  Consumers repay the loan through the savings on their electric bill.  The program first received funding in the omnibus appropriations bill for 2016, and was again funded in the most recent omnibus appropriations bill Congress passed last week. Clyburn statement: “High electric bills are one of the largest burdens to working families, especially in small towns and rural communities where much of the housin
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 Floor Statement In Opposition to House Republicans' Pay More, For Less
WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. House Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn (SC) delivered the following statement during debate on H.R. 1628 (as prepared for delivery): “Mr. Speaker, I rise in strong opposition to the Republicans’ Pay More, For Less Health Care Plan.  I often repeat the 1966 observation of Martin Luther King, Jr. that, “Of all the inequalities that exist, the injustice in Health Care is the most egregious and inhumane.” On the day it was passed, I observed that the Affordable Care Act is the Civil Rights Act of the 21st Century. Repealing the ACA would be inhumane and put egregious forms of discrimination back into our health care delivery system. “My Republican colleagues and President Trump have promised more coverage and less costs for everyone.  However, this Republican plan would allow all states to eliminate Essential Health Benefits, such as maternity and newborn coverage, prescription drugs, hospitalization, emergency coverage, and mental health s
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
