Sen. Toomey Issues Statement On Passing Of Lady Margaret Thatcher

Statement

Date:
Location: Washington, DC

U.S. Senator Pat Toomey (R-Pa.) issued the following statement today on the passing of Lady Margaret Thatcher, the former Prime Minister of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

"Lady Thatcher was a towering figure and a hero of mine. She - with President Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II - was instrumental in bringing down the Soviet Union, changing the face of Eastern Europe and bringing freedom to millions. A shop keeper's daughter, she reshaped her country's politics and its economy with her conservative convictions. She championed free markets, labor union reform and sensible tax and spending measures. She updated her government and rejuvenated the nation's foreign policy with her ideas and the force of her personality. Margaret Thatcher was a trailblazer who never thought there would be a woman prime minister in her life time. She shattered that glass ceiling herself."
