I would have thought the poster would have used a legitimate and/or respected source to make a claim..Here JoJo..don't say I never helped you..

PolitiFact | President Barack Obama says he didn't raise taxes once.

but as taxes are near record low's a raise is hardly a bad thing.
Looks like Politifact got one right, for once.
Not to nitpick but why didn't this get their 'Pants On Fire' rating?
Pants on Fire – The statement is not accurate and makes a ridiculous claim.
...since him claiming to have never raised taxes, even once, it ridiculous.

The point is not the amount of the taxes...though 500+billion is quite a lot (from Obamacare alone). Rather the point is:

Did Obama lie? Or does he really believe the statement he made in the interview?

BTW, I don't discriminate against particular sources when the facts are correct.
