Congresswoman Susan W. Brooks issued the following statement today on the passing of former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher:
"Margaret Thatcher taught young girls around the world they could wield immense power and help millions of people in the process. Of modest means, and often the only woman in a room, she refused to let socio-economic or gender barriers limit her ambitions. Her defense of liberty and the free market forged a special relationship with President Reagan and the United States that stands the test of time. The world mourns the loss of a true legend today."
