    story:
    which senators?
    -> republican senators

    and how does the normally regressive GOP feel about this issue?
    so the GOP senators are proposing a plan that, according to their world-view, raises taxes for the wealthy.

    i made a point in another thread that looking solely at income tax cuts tells only part of the story; one must examine the ramifications and what other costs will go up.

    here we have a case in point.

    They are trying to get votes from the AARPers. The GOP wants to be seen as nice to old folks so they won't be scared by the Democratic rhetoric about taking your medicare away.
