Feb. 11 (Bloomberg) -- President Barack Obama said he is “agnostic” about raising taxes on households making less than $250,000 as part of a broad effort to rein in the budget deficit.
Obama, in a Feb. 9 Oval Office interview, said that a presidential commission on the budget needs to consider all options for reducing the deficit, including tax increases and cuts in spending on entitlement programs such as Social Security and Medicare.
“The whole point of it is to make sure that all ideas are on the table,” the president said in the interview with Bloomberg BusinessWeek, which will appear on newsstands Friday. “So what I want to do is to be completely agnostic, in terms of solutions.”

Yea, I am pretty much agnostic on Obama also
After promising many, many, many times on the campaign trail that he would absolutely, positively, unequivocally NOT raise taxes on ANYONE making less than $250,000...I believe his words were, "not one dime," Barack now says he was pullin our chain and he is now open to pretty much anything. I am pretty much speechless???
