Claim: Tax Rates for the Wealthy Won't Exceed 1993 Levels 

False: Obama will allow the Bush tax cuts to expire, but claimed in the first debate that Americans with household income more than $250,000 wouldn't pay a rate higher than 39.6 percent, the same levels set by President Bill Clinton 1993. In truth, "those Americans would actually end up paying more than they did then because of new taxes under Obamacare," Factcheck.org writes.
