The boss noted earlier that Bill Clinton knows what he's doing. And now, in a recent interview with CNBC, Clinton revealed his view that tax rates should remain the same: 

Clinton did say that Congress would be best off agreeing, at least for the time being, to extend all the tax cuts that are set to expire at the end of the year, including the so-called Bush tax cuts named after Clinton's successor, George W. Bush.

Those across-the-board cuts have been criticized by Democrats who say they were skewed toward upper-income earners.
