President Obama sat down for an exclusive interview with Bloomberg Television and claimed that he is not being 'stubborn' or 'partisan' in refusing to rule out taxing top earners more, but instead equates it to a "matter of math."

"It's not a matter of me being stubborn, it's not a matter of me being partisan, it's a matter of math."

However, just last year, President Obama stated $1.2 trillion in revenue can be generated without raising taxes.
