I was disappointed in the political tone of the article titled "Experts: Easing middle-class taxes won't help" by Ken Rankin (Accounting Today, July 23-Aug. 5, 2007, page 3).The experts quoted in the article uniformly expressed a right-wing point of view regarding an effort on the part of Democrats to reverse the Bush administration's tax cuts and thereby shift some of the tax burden off the middle class and on to the wealthy. I do not appreciate finding a political article in Accounting Today, particularly if there is no attempt to make the presentation balanced.

Any discussion of the allocation of the tax burden between the upper and middle classes addressing only one form of taxation - in this instance, the federal income tax - is misleading.
