It depends on the context.
For a decision to come to us means that the decision is now up to us; that it is now inside our jurisdiction (maybe responsibility) to handle.
For decisions to come at us emphasizes that they suddenly or in quick succession come upon us. At is a more forceful preposition, almost with a connotation of "in your face".
