More Americans were born last year than in any other in history, reports ABC News. The 4,315,000 bundles of joy even top the Baby Boom at its peak. The expanding population is expected to put more pressure on scarce resources, but all those new taxpayers will help foot Medicare bills for the original Boomers, say experts.
"We already have scarce resources in a lot of areas," said one demographics expert. "It's going to affect our water supply, the quality of our air. Places that are already crowded are going to get more crowded in the future."
