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 Establishment of Reconstruction Era National Monument
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn released the following statement regarding President Barack Obama’s proclamation establishing the Reconstruction Era National Monument.  The monument will become a unit of the National Park Service consisting of historic sites from the Reconstruction Era (January 1, 1863 – March 31, 1877) in St. Helena Island, Beaufort, and Port Royal, South Carolina. “I want to thank President Obama for establishing the Reconstruction Era National Monument.  For a long time, this period of history has been ignored and is often misunderstood or misrepresented.  Beginning January 1, 1863 and continuing until March 31, 1877, newly freed slaves were guaranteed civil rights by the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments to the United States Constitution.  They bought property, founded communities, built schools and organized churches, and were elected to political offices. “Reconstruction had some of its earliest and most significant imp
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

Clyburn OP-ED: ACA is the Civil Rights Act of the 21st Century
WASHINGTON – U.S. House Assistant Democratic Leader James E. Clyburn (SC) published the following op-ed in the Charleston Post and Courier today: BY JAMES E. CLYBURN This week we are observing Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday. Many of us are celebrating by defending the Affordable Care Act (ACA), our nation’s attempt to end discrimination against people who are born sick, or get sick. King once said, “Of all the forms of inequality, injustice in health care is the most shocking and inhumane.” I often refer to the ACA as the Civil Rights Act of the 21st Century. History will not forgive our putting disparate treatment back into and insurance companies back in charge of, our healthcare delivery system. Repealing the ACA would be devastating to our economy. Experts predict that a total repeal would increase the national debt and explode the federal deficit, $320 billion over ten years.
