The GOP has basically accepted that taxes for the super wealthy will go up. They're pretty much debating where the line is. Obama is arguing for taxes to go up on those making more than $250,000/year. The GOP is arguing for taxes to go up on those making more than $1 million/year. And many prominent GOP members have pretty much thrown Norquist's pledge out the window.
