    Baby bust: U.S. births at record low
    By Annalyn Kurtz @AnnalynKurtz September 6, 2013: 10:59 AM ET

    NEW YORK (CNNMoney)
    The Great Recession and the slow recovery have been quite the romantic buzzkill.

    The U.S. fertility rate fell to another record low in 2012, with 63.0 births per 1,000 women ages 15 to 44 years old, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. That's down slightly from the previous low of 63.2 in 2011.

    It marked the fifth year in a row the U.S. birth rate has declined, and the lowest rate on record since the government started tracking the fertility rate in 1909. In 2007, the rate was 69.3.

    Falling birth rates can be considered a challenge to future economic growth and the labor pool.

Who in their right mind would be cruel enough to bring a US BABY into this world when it is a COMMON FACT that oBOMBa has stuck generations to come with the bill for his BAILOUT of failure U.S. corporations, the EU and GLOBAL BANKS and BUSINESSES?

    God help us all.........
