As if there weren't already enough negative economic indicators, experts are now saying that the current recession has caused the American birth rate to drop to its lowest level in at least a century.
The reasoning is simple: people simply can't afford to have children if they have no jobs, companies aren't hiring, taxes are high, and the future is so uncertain. Or to put it bluntly, as long as the economy is screwed, nobody else will be.
Fortunately, the experts here at "Hope n' Change" are predicting that birth levels will recover in the near future, with an "Obaby Boom" beginning exactly 9 months after the current president is voted out of office.
