    Good move IMO. One led Indians to their deaths, the other led slaves to their freedom. A worthy replacement.

    Oh great, now a $20 bill will only be worth $15.40 since women only earn 77% of men.

    it's ok, they get the house/kids when they divorce so it evens things out.

    To give Jackson the benefit of the doubt, he did kick some redcoat ass at New Orleans.

    The war was over by then. We already won, no need to run up the score in over time.:p

    Hey, kicking ass is still kicking ass, even if the game is in overtime.

    The amount of people who have crossed my Twitter timeline who say they won't use money with a n***** on it is scary. Must be Trump's base.

    What's the over/under on these people being the same who said they would never live in the USA if there was a Black President?

    Yep, nothing brings out the racism in someone like a social media account under an unaccountable name.

    About time! This woman was almost superhuman in her efforts to free the slaves - proud to have a fellow Marylander on the 20!

    Can't wait to watch the Trumpdumpers figure out ways to be against this without coming off as racist. Then again, the right is pretty open with their racism these days so no need to attempt to hide it.

    Not a bad idea. But we leave Franklin on the $100.

    It's called a re-tweet.

    It will be about disrespecting Andrew Jackson's memory. They're all boning up on his Wikipedia page and making a few select edits, I'm sure.

    I heard this and thought it was some kind of bad joke. But no, more PC nonsense run amok.

    Hating on Jackson isn't "PC nonsense". He was a terrible president.

    Anything for them feel-good feels.

    Don't care either way as I can't remember the last time I even used cash.

    Eh, doesn't bother me at all. Tubman would make for a better $20 anyway, since Jackson does have a few huge black marks against him that makes him a little hard to stomach from a historical perspective.

    Though after looking him up on the internet, I think it's funny seeing how little things have changed in the US politically over the last 200 odd years.

    And regardless of how people vote will continue to be that way for the next 200 as well.

    Listen I'm glad that women can now say they're on the $20. Wonderful. It in no way changes anything I do day in and day out. I just question changing things for the sake of change and making people feel better.

    Jackson on the $20 note is a bit like the Cambodians having Pol Pot on theirs or the Russians having Stalin.
