The BBC interviews David Walker, America's Auditor-in-Chief.
The richest, most powerful nation on earth faces a fiscal "tsunami" which threatens to overwhelm Government and citizens alike.
According to Walker, we are headed for a fiscal crisis which is "only getting worse every minute of everyday."
Infortunately, polticians know that if they acknowledge these problems, they become unelectable as the public just doesn't want to know.
The video is 23 minutes in duration.
