Joe Biden, the Democrat presidential nominee, said Thursday night that he won’t use executive orders to get things done — including raising taxes.

In an ABC News forum held at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia and moderated by the ABC anchor George Stephanopoulos, Biden said he prefers building a ''consensus.''

''We're a democracy. We need a consensus,'' he said.

Biden said he would, if elected, raise taxes on those making over $400,000 a year, and also raise the corporate tax rate to 28%.
