``For over two decades, conservative activist Grover Norquist has been getting GOP members of Congress to sign his Americas for Tax Reform pledge. It puts them on record as opposing any tax increases. That includes eliminating deductions.

"I'm not enthusiastic about it (the possibility of a tax increase)," says Coble, a longtime congressman from Greensboro who signed the pledge around 1986 during his second term. "But I don't think anything should be off the table. Just because I advocate for that, I may or may not vote for it. But that would depend on what is finally handed to us."''
