America's top diplomat warned on Thursday that the United States could suffer more lasting damage to its influence abroad if the next round of budget talks in a few months lead to another breakdown.

Tell it to your friends the Democrats and RINO

It could have been resolved by postponing the Obamacare penalties, they now want to postpone it for.

Kerry lecturing on what would damage U. S. Leadership (I presume role, globally)...

It’s like this rat can’t get low enough, and is now gnawing a new hole in the bottom of the barrel.

Obama has to decide if he is going to keep the U.S. in a leadership role on the world stage, or keep his domestic Marxist entitlement plantation growing - he won’t get funds for both.

Get rid of the EPA....so we can build this country back up. It's going to take 20 years to repair the damage.

And Obamacare...it's already a failure!!.
