    FILE - In this Feb. 15, 2012, file photo, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Va., accompanied by fellow GOP leaders House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio, Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers, R-Wash., Cantor, and House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., gestures during a news conference on Capitol Hill in Washington, to discuss the payroll tax cut negotiations. Republicans are calling it "Taxmageddon," the big tax increase awaiting nearly every American family at the end of the year, when a long list of tax cuts are scheduled to expire unless Congress acts. GOP leaders in Congress claim it would be "the largest tax increase in American history." Except it wouldn?t be, not when you take into account the big tax increases used to help pay for World War II. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)

    FILE - In this Dec. 16, 2011, file photo, Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, speaks to reporters as Republican Senators emerge from a closed-door negotiation on the payroll tax cut extension and other measures, at the Capitol in Washington. Aiming tax increases at millionaires and companies that ship jobs abroad may help frame the fairness theme of President Barack Obama?s re-election campaign, but it?s a plan that stands virtually no chance of passing Congress. "He?s got to know that none of those things he proposed really have much of a chance of going through both houses of Congress," said Hatch, the top Republican on the Senate Finance Committee.
