If anyone doesn’t want their $20 ill gladly take it.

 

Harriet Tubman will reportedly replace former President Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill, but, not until 2028 as part of  the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment.

The new design was supposed to debut next year has been said to be delayed because of security issues.

In 2016 Mnuchin’s predecessor, Jack Lew, oversaw a 10-month process in which the public suggested hundreds of people whose portraits could appear on U.S. bills.

“Democratic Rep. Ayanna Pressley of Massachusetts, who grilled Mnuchin about the Tubman plan, tweeted after the hearing: “People other than white men built this county. And Sec Mnuchin agrees, yet he refuses to update our #currency.”(CBSNEWS)

Personally I think its time to have women on our bill currency expectantly women of color it shows some improvement in this country. Now instead of having presidents who supported slavery we have strong women. Our daughters will ask who the woman on the bill is and will get an inspirational story of helping others instead of yeah I don’t know he was just a president.
