McConnell Moves For Gutted Thatcher Resolution On Floor From Breitbart News' Kerry Pickett: A Senate resolution to honor the late British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher has been gutted by Democratic staffers on the Foreign Relations Committee, a Senate source told Breitbart News on Tuesday. "Menendez staffers on the foreign relations committee took the meat out of the resolution," the source said. Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) chairs the powerful committee, which has yet to produce a resolution on Thatcher, whose funeral will be held Wednesday. "Senate Republicans are attempting to get a more substantive resolution passed before her funeral tomorrow morning," the source said, adding, "[Menendez's] staff, on his behalf, stripped out everything about her essentially but her name rank and serial number." Sen. Menendez's office did not respond to requests for comment.
