Congressman Randy Neugebauer (R-TX) released the following statement on the passing of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher:
"With Margaret Thatcher's passing, we have lost one of history's great conservative leaders. While we memorialize her many achievements, Dana and I also extend our prayers and deepest sympathies to her family and friends.
"Lady Thatcher was a rare leader whose influence stretched far beyond the time and place of her position. She believed in the tremendous potential of each individual, and fought to restore personal freedom. Alongside President Ronald Reagan, she was instrumental in opposing the spread of communism. Her commitment to liberty, democracy, and small government inspired generations of conservatives and will continue to do so for years to come.
"Lady Thatcher will be greatly missed, but her ideals will endure."
