Ole’ Tubbs will get her day on the bill. Paper money is on its way out anyway. Jackson killed the bank, but also the natives. So his legacy is a wash.

This is about correct, as it takes 20 years to get anything done in this country it seems. I see nothing wrong with changing things up from time to time. There is nothing wrong with adding or removing various people from our history to our money.

So having Harriet Tubman on the twenty would cause a certain segment of the country to stop using twenty dollar bills? Really?

Trump is making sure it's not under his watch. It's amazing the crumbs women are willing to accept.

Those who despise political correctness will refuse to use them. Really gonna irritate the banks when the ATM gives 20's out and I pull back around to tell them I want 10's and or 50's or 100's not this garbage. Guess better start collecting 20's that are the TRUE 20$ bill...Jackson was a great president and fought the banks so no surprise the fed wants him gone.

No way was this change gonna happen when you have an overt white nationalist in the White House. What would his followers say?

The change was timed for the 100th anniversary of women being able to vote.

I guess that will really show them when you either only use ATMs during banking hours, or have to make a separate trip to go to a bank, then take time out of *your* day to wait in line and exchange bills. Really sticking it to The Man there, huh?

I can't see how bank tellers will be irritated by helping customers with basic transactions. That's sort of what they are there for.

Where in "no people" do I express support for white men? I mean exactly what I wrote - NO PEOPLE.

I've always thought people on money, in any country, was dumb. Put the amount, some generic anti-counterfeiting artwork, and the name of the country on the money. Period. No matter which people you pick, somebody will be offended, so don't pick any, then everyone can st_fu. A one dollar bill should have the words "one" and "dollar" on it, the number 1, anti-counterfeiting artwork and a mention that it is United States federal reserve currency. It doesn't need to memorialize anyone, and should simply represent a medium of exchange authorized by the US government.

I'm glad Trump is putting a stop to this PC nonsense. Nothing is wrong with the $20.
