Senate Democrats Stall Resolution Honoring Margaret Thatcher
WASHINGTON, D.C. - A source has confirmed that Senate Democrats are stalling a resolution that Republican members have cleared which honors former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher:
Penny Nance, CEO and President of Concerned Women for America responds:
"What is wrong with Washington if the Senate can unanimously recognize the Baltimore Ravens for winning Superbowl XLVII but not recognize Margaret Thatcher? Put political party politics aside and get over yourselves.
"Shame on Senate Democrats for stalling the resolution to honor Margaret Thatcher. Lady Thatcher deserves recognition for many reasons, not the least of which is that she was the first and only female prime minister of Britain to this day.
"The Senate passed a similar resolution honoring Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-Hawaii) giving him the hero's farewell he deserved. Though many Sen. Republicans acknowledged that Senator Inouye's policies differed from their own, they put party politics aside in order to do the right thing.
"A woman like Lady Thatcher deserves respect and honor for her great achievements. Instead, her legacy is mocked and blocked in order to antagonize the other side. I leave you with Lady Thatcher's own words, 'If they attack one personally, it means they have not a single political argument left.'"
