Why would Obama get to decide who goes on currency in 2020? 4 years after he leaves office. If he wants a woman on a bill, just do it.

I suspect this is a talking point/publicity stunt geared to the 2016 elections.

Thumbs up Re: A woman will appear on redesigned $10 bill in 2020

I really like what Libertarian Girl said about the new bill on Facebook:

Quote:
Someone asked me what I think about the proposal to put a woman on the $10 bill. I genuinely appreciate the sentiment behind it. Women aren't as historically represented as men. That's pretty clear. But do I think it will suddenly or meaningfully fix gender issues? No, of course not. The most liberating thing for anyone and everyone is economic freedom. It's nice to feel represented but I don't particularly care too much one way or another who's on the $10 bill. The liberty to do what I want with that money is what I really care about, regardless of who's on it.

Why?

Sarah Palin!

Just kidding.

My vote wouldn't be for one woman in particular. I say put Rosie the Riveter on the $10.

F-ck if I know. Putting a woman on money isn't PC, it's just a thing we could do. We could have replaced Hamilton with another man and it wouldn't be un-PC.

Question: Why are we changing who's on the bill? What's wrong with Hamilton?

Good question. Our country is broke, so why waste money on something so frivolous and unnecessary?

For openers, I should probably point out that I seldom use paper money. (I ordinarily just use plastic; and then pay if off in full each month, so that there is no interest charged; and, even more importantly, no snowballing debt.)

And for those occasions in which I actually do use paper money, the fact is that a $10 bill will be worth the exact same ten dollars--regardless of whose face is on it. So there is really no practical difference there.

However, making this change just in order to ensure that a woman's face appears on the bill seems just a little too politically correct for my own tastes.

In fact, I wonder just how many ordinary women (which automatically excludes the most strident feminists) have been clamoring for this change? How many sincerely believe that their lives will be fundamentally altered, in a positive manner, as a result of this proposed change?

Some women are pissed...

Andrew Jackson was a Democratic slavery guy who wasn't kind to the Indians, while Alexander Hamilton was a pretty decent guy who was a Federalist (which ultimately merged and became the Republican Party)...

So who does the Treasury Secretary (and former Obama Chief of Staff) choose to get rid of? Even AFTER the campaign was to get rid of the bad Democrat on the twenty?...

The nice Republican on the ten...That NO ONE asked to be removed!!!!...:

Women on 20s campaign says the $10 is 'not perfect'

Quote:
Women's rights groups, Internet activists and members of Congress wanted a woman to replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill — preferably by Harriet Tubman.

What they got was not quite what they wanted, but no less historic: A yet-to-be-named woman will appear on the $10 bill — not in place of Alexander Hamilton but perhaps beside him.

That's progress, said the Women on 20s campaign, an online activist group that sprung up last year. But it's "not perfect."

"We would love to see a woman not have to share her glory, and her opportunity to be recognized and honored," said Susan Ades Stone, the executive director of the campaign. "And Alexander Hamilton is not someone that people have a problem with."

President Andrew Jackson, whose portrait is on the $20 bill, is another matter. While Hamilton, the first secretary of the Treasury, built the national banking system, Jackson tried to tear it down. And his record on slavery and treatment of American Indians offends some modern sensibilities
