Senate Democrats are holding up a resolution to honor former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, who died on Monday at age 87, a Heritage Foundation affiliate reports.
The resolution was to pass late Wednesday in the Democratic-controlled upper chamber, said Katherine Rosario of Heritage Action for America.
The group is a sister organization of the Heritage Foundation.
Meanwhile, the GOP-controlled House of Representatives on Tuesday unanimously passed a resolution honoring Thatcher, The Daily Mail reports. It was introduced by Majority Leader Eric Cantor of Virginia.
The tribute cited Thatcher’s “life-long commitment to advancing freedom, liberty, and democracy and for her friendship to the United States,” according to The Daily Mail.
“To refuse to honor a woman of such great historical and political significance, who was deeply loyal to the United States, is petty and shameful,” Rosario said in her Heritage blog post.
