Growing federal spending and the 2008 election

An article from the New York Times highlights one of the themes that Senator Chuck Hagel has been focused on for quite some time: federal spending.

The article focuses on the split between fiscal conservatives and the Bush administration on the growing federal spending and deficits and how it is likely to play a role in the 2008 presidential eleciton.
Spending has been one issue on which some of Mr. Bush's most prominent supporters, among them Grover G. Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform, have openly broken with the White House. But there could be no doubt about the power of this issue after the weekend in Memphis.
