I think it's great. I hope they continue to show diversity.

I say AMEN to having Harriet Tubman on the twenty dollar bill.  She is to be commended for all of her great work and how she risked her life to save others.   :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:

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

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.

I can relate to that. Frustrating because I hate to carry around coins.

I agree that she should be honored. I don't think putting her on money is the way to do it. I don't associate her with currency. It feels counterproductive for what she was fighting for.

I don't have a problem with Tubman being on the money.  I agree with the person whom pointed out there are more pressing matters to deal with.  ie; our national debt.  Changing a bill isn't going to change any of the problems that come with our nations financial woe's.

I think it's pretty cool. Thought she'd be on there when her name was first mentioned. But I agree with some of the other people, while it's a great thing, I feel like there are other matters to focus on.

Strictly political move...I think that they should remove all face off the bills and replace with historical locations....

It's an absolute travesty and it has nothing to do with Harriet Tubman specifically.  We fly the flag at half mass because joe blow the bartender had a headache and we might as well change our flag that has nothing to do with anything.  Our country is going/has gone to absolute crap.

I agree with having a variety on our money. I totally do agree with Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill. When people like Ben Carson and Donald Trump talk about putting her on a $2 bill, which most of us don't even have, that makes me mad. And hopefully soon after, I hope a different face will be on the $50 bill.

I do not have a problem with a black, a woman or anyone that deserves to be on our money, on there.  However,  I do have a problem with taking Andrew Jackson off of the $20 bill.  What a slap in the face to one of our Presidents!!! I believe that a new denomination, say a $25 bill be created.  That way there is no offense to anyone.  Harriet Tubman should have her own denomination created for her as I do believe she is deserving.
