Will Obama Raises Taxes?

CNBC's Maria Bartiromo asked him the question today:

Bartiromo: “Why raise taxes at all in an economic slowdown? Isn't that going to put a further strain on people?”


“Well, look, there's no doubt that anything I do is going to be premised on what the economic situation is when I take office. I'm going to be sworn in in January, we don't know what the economy's going to look like at that point.”
