    Social Security, Medicare threatened as birth rate hits 32-year low

    The U.S. birth rate hit a 32-year low in 2018, which could spell trouble for popular social programs for older Americans like Social Security and Medicare.

    According to data from the National Center for Health Statistics at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 3.79 million babies were born in the U.S. last year – down 2 percent from the year prior. At the same time, the fertility rate dropped to a record low – remaining below the replacement level needed to maintain the population at current levels.

    These new figures, released on Wednesday, mark the continuation of downward trends that have been occurring for a number of years. It will also exacerbate the fact that the U.S. is already considered an "aging society," where there are more older people than young ones. According to predictions from the U.S. Census Bureau, one in every five U.S. citizens will be aged 65 or older by 2030. At the same time, population growth was expected to meaningfully slow between 2017 and 2060.

    As a result, social programs that rely on workers paying into them through income taxes, to support aging Americans, could experience an even bigger financial strain.

    The pyramid schemers panic...

    They will demand more immigration to replace the disappearing Americans, to keep the human pyramid (and their economic scams) growing.

    Meanwhile, Netflix and Hollywood pump out “end of the world” despair movies and shows, while popular politicians tell everyone that the world is going to end in a few years.

    Kind of ironic. A social policy implemented by bleeding heart liberals being destroyed by other bleeding heart liberal social policies. Always turns out to be a lose lose situation from that base.

    Only problem is they do not import smart, healthy, innovative and productive folks.

    Yeah, try running a multi trillion dollar welfare state on water headed sub Sarahan 70 IQ idiots, peasant dwarf dirt farmers from Central America and left over white Wal Marx half-wits.

    Japan and Russia facing similar problems- declining birthrates. Japan's economy has stagnated for years and Russia's has been in decline. US economy growing more slowly as its population growth slows too (mostly growing due to immigration).

    The overall immigrant population continues to grow, but at a slower rate than before the 2007-09 recession. Recent immigrants are more likely to be from Asia than from Mexico, and are also more likely to have a college degree.
