Some GOP movement on taxes

A few Republicans are backing away from the Grover Norquist pledge to never, ever raise taxes no matter what. South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, Tennessee Sen. Bob Corker, Georgia Sen. Saxby Chambliss, New York Rep. Peter King and a few other lawmakers have indicated that they would support some revenue increases (preferably by eliminating deductions and tax loopholes rather than by raising rates) as part of a deal to avoid the “fiscal cliff.” But many GOP lawmakers are still scared that violating the pledge will result in a tea party challenge during their next election.
