Carly Fiorina told Squawk Box this morning that the playing field might not be level when it comes to big business vs. small business, but higher taxes will not solve the problem.
The former CEO of Hewlett Packard was referring to President Obama's proposal in his State of the Union speech earlier this week to raise taxes on those earning over $250,000.
“His solutions were all about more government, more regulation and more taxation,” she said.
She went on to say that higher taxes will not reduce the deficit, nor will they encourage entrepreneurship and business growth. “If you want to put more capital to work, you don't raise taxes on it,” she said.
