Obama to Consider Putting One of these 4 Women on $20 Bill
The face of the US $20 bill may be about to change in a big way.
Liberals have long decried Democratic President Andrew Jackson’s face decorating the $20 bill. They point to his role in the forced removal and genocide of the American Indian tribes as one reason among many for despising him. While Liberal hatred for one of the most important Democrats in American history is nothing new, the campaign to replace him on US currency is heating up.
A woman could soon be the new face of the U.S. $20 bill.
The nonprofit campaign “Women on 20s” allowed voters to choose three of 15 women candidates for the $20 bill, and now it’s down to the “Final Four,” and you can vote for the ultimate winner.
The candidates are Eleanor Roosevelt, Harriet Tubman, Rosa Parks and Wilma Mankiller.
“In the past 48 hours since the final round started, we’ve had 60,000 people cast votes already,” the group’s executive director, Susan Ades Stone. told ABC News today. “Though all these women and many more deserve to be honored, the winner will be a symbol of what we hope are greater things to come.” …
After the voting period ends (an end date has yet to be decided), the “Women on 20s” campaign will ask President Obama to start the process of getting the winning woman on the bill, Stone said.
The group is hoping to have the bill approved by the year 2020, which marks the centennial of the passage of the 19th Amendment that granted women the right to vote.
Here are the possible nominees to replace Andy Jackson on the $20 bill:
Obama shares the group’s sentiments exactly. He has already said that he thinks putting more women on more currency is a good idea. And since all it takes is a single swipe of the President’s pen to make these drastic changes, there’s little doubt that Jackson’s days on the $20 bill are numbered.
Obama has never been one to shy away from using that famous pen of his, after all.
The question now appears to be not whether Jackson will survive, but who will finally end up replacing him.
