This is not an issue of simply "choos-
Ing to die," Chief Justice William
Rehnquist noted. "It's that they want
assistance from a physician to do it,
tIat's what we're arguing about"
Justice David Souter, one of the jus-
tices more inclined to protect issues of
rsonal privacy, suggested it might be
soon for the high court to assess the
risks of making assisted suicide legal or

11 1qrin l..i'qj

to weigh patients' interests in being free
of pain and suffering. "It may be impos-
sible for a court to assess that sensibly
for a long time until there is more expe-
rience out in the world," he said.
Those who advocate for a right to
physician-assisted suicide, including
some doctors, say cancer patients,
AIDS victims and others who are ter-
minally ill should not have to suffer
through a painful death. An individual's
right to privacy, they say, should guar-
antee the choice to speed death with

drugs or other methods prescribed by a
doctor. In other words, people should
have a choice in their own death.
Those who oppose this view, includ-
ing the Clinton adminstration and the
Washington and New York state offi-
cials arguing the case, voice an overrid-
ing interest in protecting life and say
assisted suicide would be abused by
unscrupulous doctors and greedy rela-
tives. They say it could force depressed
or misguided patients into an irre-
versible choice.

Lott prepares for new Congress

* Senate leader plans to
introduce bills to cut
taxes $150 billion
WASHINGTON (AP) - Trent Lott,
portraying his Senate as a can-do
"island of tranquility" in a stormy capi-
tal, says Republicans are readying a 10-
bill package for the new Congress that
includes $150 billion in tax cuts and a
balanced budget amendment to the
With House Republicans focused on
defending embattled Speaker Newt
Gingrich (R-Ga.), Lott, the Senate
majority leader, is marshaling GOP
senators to take an early lead in setting
the agenda of the new Congress.
He's scheduled to flesh out the 10-
bill package, to be introduced the day

after President Clinton's Jan. 20 inaugu-
ration, in meetings today with Senate
committee chairs and tomorrow with
the entire GOP caucus.
Lott repeated Republicans' intention
to allow Clinton to make the first step
on such politically unpopular measures
as wringing savings from Medicare and
trimming cost-of-living adjustments to
Social Security benefits.
But, in the 105th Congress,
Republicans will revive some of the
measures that scored well with voters in
the 104th, when they pushed their much
more sweeping "Contract With
"I want the president to lead. He is
the president. The people elected him.
He has a responsibility," Lott said yes-
terday. "But we have an obligation to

lead also. We will not always vit. W
will not always react. We will1ihve an

said the balanced budget amendncnt
will probably be first on the list!
During the last Congress, the Senate
fell one vote short of sendin' ithe
amendment to the states for ratif icdtion.
' Other likely bills are an anticrime
bill providing the death penaltyvr so-
called drug kingpins, a ban on certain
late-term abortion and permission for
companies to offer compensatory time
off in lieu of paid overtime, Lott said.
And tax cuts will be incorp)rated
into the package, probably incluling
relief for families with children. reduc-

The Washington Post
WASHINGTON - Newt Gingrich said there would be no
retribution, House Republican leaders said there would be no
retribution, but Republican Party officials apparently did not
get the message.
Republican lawmakers who did not vote to re-elect
Gingrich as speaker were told they were not welcome at last
night's GOP dinner honoring Republican National
Chairperson Haley Barbour.
The lawmakers were not asked flatly to stay away from the
gala, but they were told many GOP donors who would be
attending had asked not to be seated with them.
"We're just informing members of their sentiments,"
Edward Gillespie, the RNC's communications director said
Gillespie said it really didn't have as much to do with
party discipline, as with social graces - suggesting the
lawmakers would be skunks at a garden party. "It's more
a matter of not wanting to have a member of Congress
show up at a festive event and then have the. conversation

come to a grinding halt when they sit down at the table,"
he said.
But Gillespie did not dismiss the issue of loyalty as a c-
tor and signaled there would be consequences for not back-
ing Gingrich. "I wouldn't characterize it as punishment for
their votes - but it certainly is a byproduct of their vote;he
Four GOP lawmakers - Reps. Tom Campbell (Calif.),
Michael Forbes (N.Y.), James Leach (Iowa), and Linda
Smith, (Wash.) -- voted for candidates other than Gingich.
Five others voted "present": Reps. John Hostettler (Ind.),
Scott Klug (Wis.), Constance Morella (Md.), Mark Neumann
(Wis.), and Frank Wolf (Va.).
Only Forbes, Hostettler, Klug and Wolf had been sched-
uled to attend the dinner. Forbes, the first GOP lawmakef to
publicly oppose Gingrich's re-election as speaker, said hb was
saddened that Barbour's tenure as party chairman was ending
with "such petty silliness."
Gingrich aides stressed yesterday -they had nothing-to do
with telling them they would not be welcome.
