House Majority Whip Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) on Thursday labeled a C-SPAN caller a "homeboy," but that doesn't mean he agreed with him.

During an interview on C-SPAN's "Washington Journal," a Republican caller pressed Clyburn about the so-called Stupak amendment, an abortion-funding restriction that was included in the House bill over the objection of liberals. The caller then launched into a general complaint about Democrats.

While noting that he and Rep. Bart Stupak (D-Mich.) are good friends, Clyburn explained why he opposedĀ  the anti-abortion rights amendment.

He then defended Democrats' transparency on healthcare, but told the caller, "I do appreciate your being a home boy, so to speak."
