She is now sounding the alarm on "Third World America" She takes on the menacing duo of Washington and Wall Street, brazenly charging politicians with abandonment of the middle class and claiming the disappearance of the American Dream. Is the American middle class really in danger of extinction? How can we close the widening gap between the haves and have-nots? Hear what one of the most influential voices in modern media has to say about America’s imminent (or not so imminent) collapse.
