Congressman Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) today issued the following statement on the passing of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher.
"Today, I join millions around the world in mourning the loss of one of the greatest conservative leaders our generation has known. Margaret Thatcher inspired us all with her dedication to freedom. She cast away barriers and convinced people to open their minds to the ideals and concepts of freedom, free people and free markets. Lady Thatcher will be remembered for her friendship to America and the alliance she helped forge with President Ronald Reagan to bring peace and prosperity to people around the world. Her legacy will live on in our hearts and minds as we continue the work she began."
