Conservatives will push for image of 40th president to grace $10 bill, $20 bill or dime.

NEW YORK (CNN/Money) - Ronald Reagan's face could one day adorn the $10 bill or half the dimes minted in the country, if fans of the late president get their way.

USA Today reported Tuesday that Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) plans to sponsor legislation in the Senate to have Reagan's image replace that of Alexander Hamilton, the nation's first treasury secretary, on the $10 bill.




Meanwhile, an effort is underway in the House of Representatives, led by Rep. Dana Rohrabacher (R-Calif.), to put Reagan's face on the $20.

A change would require majority votes in both houses of Congress. In the Republican-dominated House of Representatives, passage of a bill seems achievable, according to Washington sources. In the Senate, however, cloture rules would allow the Democratic minority to block any legislation.

Proponents of Reaganized money, however, are proposing an alternative to paper: coins. Unlike decisions about notes, coinage can be changed at the discretion of the Secretary of the Treasury.

So, is former President Reagan worthy of this ? In my opinion, yes.
He was a good president and it's time for a change on the current currency of the U.S. Let's get some "fresh" faces of more recent leaders who have helped this country.

I wouldn't mind the change of the currency, Reagan, Roosevelt maybe even Kennedy could be used for a change...but i can't honestly say any of these men really would deserve it. They were good presidents but all had their faults, i think it would be hard to get a unanimous vote on it.

I just don't want to see colorful us currency. stick to money green and all will be fine.

I agree WW, keep the money green.

Also, I think that everyone has faults, however, the men that you mentioned also did great things.

Let's also not forget about the women of the U.S. who have helped shape this country. Maybe it's time for them to be on the face of a dollar bill ?

I'd support a coin with his likeness on it. I don't know about the $10 bill though. If they are going to moderize it, it should be FDR.

Any political figure that we dug deep enough on, we'd be able to find faults. How many of the men on our money now owned slaves?

are we going to pretend that lincoln did no wrong?

how about washington?

you know what the big difference is between now and then?

then they overlooked their flaws and concentrated on their jobs, now we nit pick every little thing right down to what they told little bobby, their best friend during childhood.

no president has been without his faults. they've all done or said soemthing someone didnt like or agree with.

did jefferson feel he deserved to be put on currency? probably not but he's still there. how about grant? franklin?

if we nit pick long enough we'll feel no president should be on out currency.

i dont know if he should be put on there or not. in some way i think all the presidents should be on our currency, much like state quarters, for a limited time they get their face pressed onto maybe say the one dollar bill or the five. whatever bill. maybe the twenty since people love to counterfeit those.


but its only money, rounds discs of metal and rectangle pieces of paper and we feel they have value when they dont. if he makes it i wont object if he doesnt i wont be saddened by it. its just money.

The dollar bill?????
Geez, elevatedone, I think we're at least worth the $50

And please, no more one-dollar or two-dollar coins---they've all been hoarded, along with lots of 50-states quarters.

I agree no man no matter who he or she for that matter is. I don't want anyone to even try and say that the pope is without fault because you know there has to be something.

As for the Reagon money I am all for it. I also say use roosevelt, and kennedy because they were great presidents as well.

Isn't Roosevelt on the dime *looks at dime*, YEP, and he has been for a long, long time. That's a lot of dimes in his name.
Kennedy was briefly on the 50-cent piece. As far as I know, he's the most current President on our currency.

Elevatedone~~
*kisses on forehead* What a nice thing to say.

Isn't any kind of greenback or coin good as long as you can buy lots of stuff with it?

Well as much as Reagan did for the upper class perhaps we should put his face on the $1000 bill.

actually, thats dwight eisenhower.

ON TOPIC: I don't know much about reagan, simply because he was before my time.

Wsat I see here, is republicans mostly support reps, and democrats mostly support dems. Ya know, its okay to support a president even though hes not with the party you registered with.
(with an exception of duyba
)

Hey Pisky, the idea is to encourage spending not withholding for keepsake.

If Reagan's face goes on a US bill, it needs to be on the $500 or $1000, that way, only the die hard Reagan lovers will have to look at it. Seeing Reagan's face on the ten or twenty dollar bill would put me in a rotten mood on a daily basis. Me and millions of others who are too poor to buy into Republican mythology. They should at least wait until everyone who lived in Reagan's era is dead and gone - at least nobody alive is gonna get pissed off looking at Hamilton's face , or Roosevelt's.
Not everybody believes that Reagan was anything special.
