Abolishing the dollar bill for a dollar coin is prompting citizen disapproval. It would save the American taxpayer $147,000,000. How do you feel about it?

How about we charge the president rent for the white house, how about you can carry 20$ in paper in a wallet no weight now throw 20$ worth of coins in pocket. Your a special kind of stupid aren't you. Why not attack real problems like you did when you brought up how much we give other countrys? Btw how much will it cost to produce allthe coins, convert all machines to take them. You need to think it all through.

Hummm - I agree with you. I was wondering what others thought of the idea. The Secretary of the Treasury brought this idea up again on TV. He also suggested that we do away with the penny.

there would still be dollar bills for a long time just because of all the ones already produced. the cost of a coin is proabably close to the cost of a bill only a coin lasts for many decades, convert machines, that would probably be a private issue for those who own machines, it would proabably create alot of jobs, special kind of stupid...who carries 20 one dollar bills, my only problem with this is the coin would hurt when you threw them at strippers..haha this country needs to spend less money period.i am for any way we can accomplish that

If Americans would spend more money then it would stimulate the economy more, and there are already dollar coins in circulation. Alot of machines take the dollar coins as well, so it would not be much of a change.
