Goldman Sachs’s Blankfein Says He Might Support Higher Taxes

Goldman Sachs Group Inc. Chief Executive Officer Lloyd C. Blankfein said he would be willing to pay higher U.S. taxes if he thought it would help reduce the national debt.

“No one is so unpatriotic that they wouldn’t pay a little bit more to resolve it,” Blankfein, 58, said today in an interview on CNBC. He said that no one would be willing to pay higher taxes unless they’re sure it was part of a comprehensive solution to the country’s budget.
