Congressman Keith Rothfus [PA-12] released the following statement on the passing of Lady Margaret Thatcher:
"Lady Margaret Thatcher was the last of a generation of giants in the fight for freedom," said Rothfus. "Her principled leadership led to an economic renaissance in Great Britain and demonstrated the power of free markets and a free people. She took a Great Britain languishing as the "sick man of Europe" and restored it to greatness. Mrs. Thatcher worked hand-in-hand with Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II to tear down the walls of the Soviet Union and free oppressed peoples around the world. May she rest in peace."
