The idea of a dollar coin is a loser in the U.S. There are plenty of ways Congress can act to save money. Making Americans give up the greenback shouldn't be one of them.
What if we got rid of dollar bills and replaced them with coins? Congressional auditors say it could save taxpayers some $4.4 billion over the next 30 years.
I love Barack Obama. He inspires a nation. He's our generation's JFK. Our LBJ. Our HSBC. Because we can bank on him doing the right thing for this country.
