The population increases.

if the death rate is low, it means you have a lot of people who are really old but not really dying. this usually happens in places where medical services are GOOD - hence keeping the population alive as long as possible.
This has led to a transition in the diseases effecting the population. where initially the major disease causing deaths was infection, it has now drifted towards chronic diseases like heart disease.
additionally it increases the burden on the economy because the older population requires care and expenditure.
And as stated above, a higher birth rate leads to over population etc etc
