Why not Dick Best? Hero of the battle of Midway or Patton?If we are being honest, Bill Gates has helped a lot more people than Tubman ever did. He deserves to be on the 20 more than her.Seems that wayYeah, but she helped 100 people once.Andrew Jackson is one of the primary reasons the US expanded all the way to the west coast as quickly as it did and one of the primary reasons we have states like Louisiana. He reminds you of Trump because he was a strong man who made tough decisions, I get it.The only reason why Hamilton wasn't removed, was because he had a hit musical and was popular again.Kids do and ask questions.
Remove the author of the Federalist Papers? IDK
Just add another bill. No sense in removing someone IMO.
Which is a petty reason to decide who gets bumped.
So let's review...
$1 - Washington- can't remove him, obviously. That said, we need to stop printing dollar bills and replace them with dollar coins. We'd save billions by doing this.
$2 - Jefferson- Nobody uses this bill, but he'd be a good candidate because he raped his slaves.
$5 - Lincoln - Our greatest president, so, um, no.
$10 - Hamilton- I'm all for keeping him, because we wouldn't even have a treasury system without him.
$20 - Jackson- Racist, Crazy person, genocidal maniac. Also, reminds me too much of Trump. Besides, he was against the printing of paper money to start with. Off he goes.
$50 - Grant- Maybe a good person to replace, because while he was a great general, his presidency was notoriously corrupt.
$100 - Ben Franklin - Not a president. Kind of a cool guy, though. Could be a good candidate for replacement.
Now, people we COULD put on the money.
FDR (Although he's already on the dime)
