The Twenty Dollar Bill is Getting a Face Lift
Say good bye to Andrew Jackson's familiar face on the twenty dollar bill.
The U.S. Treasury is giving the monetary note a facelift.
ABC7 Chicago reports that Harriet Tubman will be replacing Andrew Jackson's portrait.
This expected change will happen in 2020 on the 100th anniversary of woman gaining the right to vote.
If you remember last June a big "who-ha" was made about having a woman on our money. Originally, it was to replace Alexander Hamilton on the $10 bill.
The reason for the change to the $20 bill, was do to a big push from the group campaigning 'Women on 20's'. Get it... $20 bill, Women on 20. Plus, the Broadway hit "Hamilton", all about Alexander Hamilton's life, proves to be an issue in removing him from the $10 bill.
I mean great a woman will be on our currency. Honestly though, it didn't and doesn't really matter to me.
I've never looked at our money and thought it was sexist? I guess some feminists wouldn't appreciate me saying this, but does it really matter who is on our money?
Heck, as long as it spends the same, that's all I care about.
