Speaker Boehner on Margaret Thatcher

Statement

Location: Washington, DC

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) issued the following statement on the passing of former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher:

"The greatest peacetime prime minister in British history is dead. Margaret Thatcher, a grocer's daughter, stared down elites, union bosses, and communists to win three consecutive elections, establish conservative principles in Western Europe, and bring down the Iron Curtain. There was no secret to her values -- hard work and personal responsibility -- and no nonsense at all in her leadership. She once said, "Defeat? I do not recognize the meaning of the word.' Now this lady who was never for turning goes to rest as grateful friends and allies around the world mourn her passing and pray for her loved ones. Americans will always keep Lady Thatcher in our hearts for her loyalty to Ronald Reagan and their friendship that we all admired. At this difficult hour, I send the condolences of the U.S. House of Representatives to Prime Minister Cameron and the British people."
