Today, Congressman Luke Messer, who serves on the House Foreign Affairs Committee, gave the following statement on the passing of Margaret Thatcher:
"Margaret Thatcher was a true conservative leader and icon. Like President Reagan, Ms. Thatcher had a knack for always finding the best phrase to explain the importance of personal responsibility, free markets and individual freedom.
One of my favorite examples was the 1976 interview where Ms. Thatcher famously said, the trouble with socialist governments is "they always run out of other people's money.'
She was a one of a kind leader and will be missed."
