Like most members of the Texas delegation, Culberson evinces the image of a solid conservative, but his record, at least on fiscal issues, showed otherwise. As one of the 12 “Cardinal” members of the Appropriations Committee, Culberson voted against numerous opportunities to cut spending. He voted against the promised $100 billion in cuts in 2011, cutting spending levels to pre-Pelosi era, and eliminating farm and green energy subsidies. While he did vote for some spending cut amendments, he also voted for the Big 3 sins of 2011; the debt ceiling, omnibus, and minibus.
