By Alan Elsner

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - In a rare show of discontent with the White House, 41 congressional Republicans have signed a letter protesting President Bush's plan to sharply cut spending on an anti-drug program.

The 41 House of Representatives Republicans joined 59 Democrats in signing the letter, given to Reuters on Friday, which asked top House budget writers to reject the cuts.
