Re: the Nov. 10 article "Untangling the tax plan mission."

I found your chart highlighting the current federal tax code with the tax code proposed in the House and Senate to be excellent and very enlightening. I hope you will reprint it at least once a week. It is one thing to see the facts printed in this chart and not buried and distorted by a politician's rhetoric.

The President, members of his administration and Republican House members have the unmitigated gall to go on news programs and expound on how their tax plan will favor the middle class. Maybe they can explain how reducing corporate taxes from 35 percent to 20 percent, reduce mortgage deductions to $500,000, repeal deductions for medical, tax preparation and personal casualty losses, benefits the middle class.

In fairness, Trump did keep his promise to "drain the swamp." However, all he did was to replace it with leeches.
