Obama rejects $2.4 trillion plan without tax hikes

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama on Friday said he would not support a $2.4 trillion plan to reduce the federal deficit without some tax hikes to increase revenues.

"I have not seen a credible plan, having gone through the numbers, that would allow us to get to $2.4 trillion without really hurting ordinary folks," he told a White House press conference.

"The notion that we would be doing that and not asking anything from the wealthiest among us, or not closing corporate loopholes, that doesn't seem like a serious plan."
