RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — A U.S. congressman from North Carolina wants the $50 bill redrawn to feature the face of former President Ronald Reagan.

Republican Rep. Patrick McHenry wants Congress to tell the U.S Treasury to replace former President Ulysses S. Grant on the bill. McHenry announced his bill Tuesday. He has 13 Republican co-sponsors.

Grant was a Union general during the Civil War who led the North to victory and later became the nation’s 18th president.

McHenry said Reagan transformed the nation’s political and economic thinking and argued that “every generation needs its own heroes.”

One of McHenry’s Republican primary opponents, Scott Keadle, said he admires Reagan, too. But he accused McHenry of pandering to voters with the bill instead of focusing his work on the bad economy.

Grant or Reagan? It ain't even close. In fact Reagan would be way down the list. This ain't an attack of Reagan. But he had plenty of screw ups. And nothing that stands out as a major success. Even Eisenhower rayes better then Reagan in real accomplishments. :thumbsup

I agree, although I like Reagan I don't see him as being anywhere near great enough to be on our money.

Well Clinton got the three dollar bill... Reagan for most people on the wacked out left put Ronimus Reagan very high on the list, reguardless of the few missteps he took. I love that history did not listen to the idiot pundantson the left that said so many of the same things about Ronnie as they did about W.

If they're gonna change any bill it ought to be the $50 - Grant wasn't a great general or even a very good one - he just understood that to win the war meant fighting the Confederate army and that time was on his side, even if that meant losing battles and bleeding the Union army.

Most historians rank him low on his performance as President also.

I think if we're going to change who's on our currency it should be one of them that has someone who's on more than one.
Washington on the Dollar & Quarter
Jefferson on the $2 bill & the Nickel
Lincoln on the $5 bill & the Penny
Couldn't we take them off of one their currencies?
By the way...what did Kennedy do besides get shot to warrant being immortalized on our currency?
In that case all the presidents that were shot should be on our currency.
I think room does need to be made for more modern presidents to be on our currency.
I've always wondered why Grant was on the fifty since he does always seem to be ranked low compared to other presidents.
The question of should Reagan be on our currency...?...
Sure, he was clearly the best president in my lifetime in terms of revitalizing a broken down eceonomy & taking steps to end/win the Cold War.
He's probably a top 10 president of all time.

Yeah I've had some kind of flue anyway and hearing this on the news last night almost made me throw up.

What I really want to know is with all the stuff going on why are we spending time trying to change the money? And even if we are why change to a president? Why not Yosemite. How about Elvis? How about a woman? How about a wagon train heading west? Or how about a depiction of Wounded knee? :rolls.
I still think Eisenhower beats the crap out of Reagan. So does Roosevelt
