But the landing still might be cushioned by a deal between Senate Republicans and the White House that would protect couples earning up to $450,000 from most of the income tax increases that would otherwise take effect in 2013 as a raft of tax cuts, including the steep income tax reductions first passed under President George W. Bush, expire."
