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 Announces Public Meeting to Discuss National Monument Proposal for Historic Reconstruction Era Sites
WASHINGTON, D.C – Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn today announced that National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis will travel to South Carolina to visit proposed sites that are under consideration to be included as part of a Reconstruction Era national monument and to attend a public meeting hosted by Rep. Clyburn to hear feedback from the public on the proposal. “I am thrilled that Director Jarvis will be coming to visit Penn Center, Brick Baptist Church, and other historic sites from the Reconstruction Era in Beaufort and Port Royal.  Our country desperately needs to better understand this era of our history, and including these sites in the National Park System is critical to this effort.  We must preserve these places and stories for future generations as well as make them accessible to the public.  The National Park Service is entrusted with stewardship of our nation’s most sacred historic places, and I hope to include these sites in the system.  I al
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

Clyburn Statement on WRDA
Clyburn statement on the President signing the Water Infrastructure Improvements Act for the Nation (WIIN) Act, which includes the new Water Resources Development Act: “The WIIN Act includes provisions that will expand the Lake Marion Regional Water Agency.  This longstanding initiative I have championed currently provides almost 300 million gallons of clean drinking water annually in three rural counties, Calhoun, Orangeburg, and Dorchester, and has additional capacity used to recruit industry.  The bill increases the cap on the Agency’s authorization to allow it access to be expanded to serve additional rural communities.  This bill extends the agency’s authority to include Berkeley County, which will allow it to serve the site of the new Volvo Cars manufacturing facility and adjacent supplier facilities.  The Volvo development is a $500 million investment which is expected to create 8,000 jobs within the next decade and contribute $4.8 billion annually to the South Carol
