House Maj. Leader Dick Armey said that if Sen. Mark Hatfield (R-
OR) -- the lone Senate GOP vote against the Contract's must-pass
balanced-budget amendment -- were in the House, he'd be stripped
of his cmte chair. No word from Armey on whether the leadership
posts of House Maj. Whip Tom DeLay (R-TX), GOP Conference Chair
John Boehner (R-OH), Conference Vice Chair Susan Molinari (R-NY)
and Judiciary Chair Henry Hyde (R-IL) are in jeopardy over their
opposition to the key Contract provision relating to term limits.
