Rep. John Culberson (R-TX) appeared on MSNBC's Hardball to spread the GOP's false talking points on the Bush tax cuts. Responding to a question from guest host Michael Smerconish, Culberson claimed that the top two percent of earners, who would be affected by the expiration of the tax breaks for the top two tax brackets, consist "primarily" of "small business owners." In fact, "exceedingly few" small businesses fall into this category. In order to make their talking point stick, the GOP has had to expand their definition of "small business" to include very large corporations organized as "pass-through" entities as well as a number of non-employer tax filers like authors and athletes.

On May 20, 2009, Rep. John Culberson wrote a blog post in The Hill claiming that the American Clean Energy and Security (ACES) Act of 2009 would cost Texans billions in increased electricity charges and hundreds a year in utility bills, and said: "the staggering costs of a cap and trade program will stifle our domestic energy and manufacturing sectors and result in major rate increases for consumers." As usual, a Republican has it wrong on cap-and-trade.
