Thoughts about having Tubman on the $20 bill?

It's about time they have some variety on our money. I hope they choose a Native American the next time around.

Completely agree with you.  I have no problem with the changing of people on our money.   It's about time we have some diversity on our cash.  A native American would be great.

I like the idea of celebrating other historical figures that helped shape our nation other than just presidents on our money. After all, we are a nation of the People -- not a monarchy or dictatorship -- so the People should be celebrated just as much as any one president.

I'm totally opposed to it; changing the currency to reflect political correctness is disgusting. But it's not unexpected, America is extinct, and I suppose it's time the worthless paper money reflected that.

I think it is a great idea. Tub was a great hero to the slaves. Part of our history that should be recognized. Native American also deserve the privilege.

I think that should have been the FIRST choice, personally.

There already was a native American on our money.   The Sacagawea Dollar, remember is was gold tone.

I think it's wonderful.  :thumbsup: There are many people who shaped American and it's a great way to celebrate that. Harriet Tubman was a true pioneer, humanitarian, and hero. I'm in awe of all that she accomplished.

And still in: when I put a $20 for subway fare when I'm in New York, I get those back instead of bills.  Then people get confused when I need to spend it at a store.

It's a wonderful idea, but there are many more pressing matters facing this country. It kind of seems like a waste of tax payer dollars. It's being one to "educate" the population. If school doesn't...would this change? Probably not. I mean, how many people even know who is on the $50 and what his significance is? Or the $100 bill and what political contributions that person made?

Its about time that someone of her calibre and her selflessness will dawn a US note.  She helped injured  people on both sides of the American Cival War and is a true American so this great way to honor her.
