this, to me, is a prime example of why the US will soon fail as a nation.
Our president is promising trillions of dollars, spending on everything he possibly can, giving away more money than we actually have and, instead of
cutting costs, we're spending money redesigning pennies and quarters. Once the designs are chosen, the minting facilities need to be changed (heh)
to ensure the new coins can be made.
Hundreds of millions spent, in total, perhaps.
On one coin that is already obsolete and another that is rapidly going the way of the dodo.
this is, in my mind, as big a waste in government spending as you will find.
