WASHINGTON D.C. – Today, Rep. Roe, M.D. (R-TN) released the following statement regarding the passing of former British prime minister Margaret Thatcher:

“America lost a great friend with the passing of Margaret Thatcher. Mrs. Thatcher was a champion for freedom and, working with President Reagan, helped to defeat the Soviet Union. All public servants would do well to honor her memory by striving to live up to her example. Pam and I send our thoughts and prayers to Mrs. Thatcher’s family and the British people.”
