Catalysts and Equilibrium

Why doesn't a catalyst affect the equilibrium position of a reaction?

Catalysts don't affect the equilibrium because they speed up the forward and reverse reaction rates equally.

Catalysts just lower the activation energy but don't affect the overall products and reactants.
