GOP Could Relent on Tax Hikes to Slash "Entitlements"

The meeting comes as a rising number of Republicans are suggesting the party should heed Obama’s call for higher tax rates for the wealthiest Americans in exchange for potential slashes to benefit programs. Speaking on "Fox News Sunday," Tennessee Senator Bob Corker suggested Republicans should concentrate on cutting so-called entitlements such as Medicare and Medicaid.
