I think that the faces portrayed on all of our currency has always been those of presidents and am not quite understanding why we would break from that tradition. If it is to celebrate black heritage then we should use Barack Obama's visage. If tradition is to be broken then Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s face should be added. Or Frederick Douglas. I never really touch or see money as I am always using my debit card. Any money I have is usually grabbed quickly by my family. The choice really makes no difference to me other than we are breaking from a tradition for no apparent, logical reason. I suppose Susan B. Anthony made it onto currency. The difference is that another president was not displaced because of this choice. Put Tubman on a silver dollar.

I think it is great that Tubman will be on the $20 dollar bill. She represents a lot of good. She is black, she is a woman,and she risked her life to save others. I can not way wait to get mine and frame it. She is a part of history that should be remembered along with others. I like how this change is getting the younger generation to ask questions and bring opportunities to teach them.

I think it's a great move. Jackson was a controversial figure to say the least. Tubman is a historical figure that deserves the honor much more.

:D

I think they should pick a more flattering picture of her.  Good choice!  Did you know that she was a REPUBLICAN?

I think the funny part of it is that she was a Republican. But why change something that is not broken. It will coast a large fortune to cut new dyes for all of the  reserves to print new different money and our country is broke now. Why?  I just seems to me tha Obama is wanting to change everything in our country, taking down a lot of what is part of our histoy and destroying it. In the mean time  going behind our backs with uncalled for deals.

Maybe one of these day, it will be legal if we custom made our currency to put our own family and dog's photo on it. It really doesn't make a difference to me. As long as it is the same value. Will it make our country more richer? I don't know.

Don't really care... Money is money... Mostly use credit card, online payment, or cryptocurrency anyways so I don't look at physical money that often... Only time I would look at a bill is 5-10 seconds after I hand the money to the cashier or waiter/waitress

Why not have Harriet Tubman on the 20 dollar bill? They put other clowns on there and all were not Presidents.  This should been done long ago.

I think that is sweet and all but she is not a founding father of our country.

I'm torn.  It would be nice to see a woman on the money, it also seems like a waste of funds to print out all those new bills unnecessarily.  If the bills were needing to be printed to replaced old ones, it would be different
