Actually, it has nothing to do with that at all. It has to do with Obama's IRS -- fresh with 15,000 additional newly hired vultures -- figuring out new ways to reach into our pockets.
But as long as you brought it up, the GOP idea of "broaden the tax base" is really just the most logical interpretation of Obama's plea for "everyone to pay their fair share." How paying zero taxes is "paying your fair share" only makes sense to the most ideologically saturated lefty.
