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 SC DOT Commission Approval of Local Projects
(Columbia, SC) - Congressman Jim Clyburn released the following statement on the South Carolina Department of Transportation Commission’s vote on repurposing federal funds for local highway projects: “I support the S.C. Department of Transportation Commission’s action today to re-purpose certain federal highway funds to make critical investments in communities in the 6th Congressional District.  Today’s action will create jobs, improve infrastructure, enhance public safety and contribute to essential community development and revitalization.  Many of the communities that will benefit from this action have suffered decades of neglect. I was proud to work with local elected officials and community leaders to repurpose  these funds for projects they have championed for decades and are prepared to meet the 20% match requirement.  Consequently, these projects - which meet the legal requirement of being within a 50-mile radius of the original site -  will not cost South Carolin
Clyburn Statement on the Charleston Massacre Anniversary
WASHINGTON – U.S. House Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn today released the following statement on the first anniversary of the Charleston Massacre: “Today marks the first anniversary of the Emanuel AME Church massacre in Charleston, South Carolina.  This heinous crime was deeply impactful, and the response of the families and community has been even more impactful. “As an AME congregant, a former resident of Charleston and Representative of the Low-Country in the U.S. House, I feel a deep and abiding connection to Charleston and the Low-Country.  The victims of that horrific crime were our friends and neighbors and my constituents.  Their deaths pained me in profound and personal ways and the wounds to our community will take time to heal. “On the night of June 17, 2015, my friend and Co-Worker Reverend Clementa Pinckney left his service in the state senate to travel to Charleston to fulfill his calling of  tending to his flock at Mother Emanuel AME Church
Good Trouble
One day after the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history killed 49 people and nearly a year after nine prayerful souls were gunned down at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, SC I sought recognition from the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives attempting to raise a Parliamentary Inquiry. I wanted to inquire as to when we might be able to expect a vote on several pieces of legislation that would make our communities safer, our families more secure ‎ and our gun ownership laws more sensible. My Inquiry was not responded to, and I was ruled out of order. The so-called “No Fly, No Buy” bill, H.R. 1076, would deny gun purchases to individuals on the terrorist watch list who are prohibited from flying. H.R. 1217, sponsored by Representatives Mike Thompson and Peter King, would‎ require universal background checks for gun purchases. Representative David Cicilline’s bill, H.R. 4603, would prevent those found guilty of hate crimes from purchasing a firearm. My bill,
