Armey Urges End to Cuba Sanctions

By PAUL RICHTER, Times Staff Writer

WASHINGTON -- In a vivid sign of waning support for the economic embargo on
Cuba, House Majority Leader Dick Armey (R-Texas) said he believes that the
United States should open trade with the Communist regime and that he has
backed the restrictions on travel and trade only out of loyalty to two
Cuban American members of the House.

Speaking at a trade promotion event in Wichita, Kan., on Wednesday, Armey
acknowledged that congressional support for the 4-decade-old restrictions
is fading. "If they last a year, it will be the last year they last," said
Armey, who plans to retire from Congress at the end of the year.
