A new bill is being pushed to once and for all do away with the dollar bill.

What is your opinion?

I don't like the coin idea, because it can be mistaken for another coin. I say keep the buck!

Strippers do not like it when you throw coins at them.

I hate carrying coins in my pocket, but I do see the value in changing from paper to coins. There are obvious benefits, from cost and eco-friendly.

As a nation it's a big cost savings and it doesn't seem to cripple the many other countries that use dollar coins.

So, I'm in favor of it.

Yeah, that too. They tend to bruise the naughty bits.

This could open up a whole new industry. Someone could design a coin cup that the stripper could attach to her body to catch those coins. Or as John McCain said, through higher denominations at her.

The European Union, Canada, and Britain have already made the switch, and now use mostly coin money.
