Conservatives Balk at Bush's Spending Plans

As far as I'm concerned, anything that divides the Republicans is a good thing. The Wall St. Journal has a (free) article up for tomorrow on how conservatives who are balking at Bush's spending plans are worried that voters may stay home from the polls in the mid-term elections.

...conservatives' rebelliousness threatens a range of Bush initiatives before Congress. Moreover, Republican strategists worry that widespread disenchantment among the party's bedrock conservatives could lead many to stay home in next year's midterm elections.

    I am swayed by arguments of fiscal responsibility. But the current folks in the this Whitehouse-Administration don't have any discipline at all when it comes to spending money...
