President Obama was narrowly reelected, but the American people did not vote for tax hikes. In fact, one of Obama's major campaign themes was the claim that Romney wanted to raise taxes. The 2012 election was a status quo election; Obama was returned to the White House, but Republicans retained the House because the American people want them to continue to exercise a check and balance.
The strong House opposition to tax hikes was vindicated, not rejected, by the election.
Moreover, given the extraordinarily weak economic recovery the country faces, it would be an enormous mistake to raise any taxes and risk tipping the economy back into recession.
