    A very interesting and informative article. Comment on Hetty Green and Obama were amusing. If Obama can make it, in a distant future, then surely Hillary is not far behind! It shall become clear in next sixteen months.

    Leave the money alone!!! The people who’s faces are on the money are the people who established the country and the means by which the country was allowed to prosper. Replacing their likenesses on our money is a means of erasing our history and our heritage. This is one more step by the Communists to destroy Our American Heritage. Jack Lew is a CARD CARRYING COMMUNIST and it is his GREATEST DESIRE TO DESTROY ALL THINGS AMERICAN. As for US Grant being on the $50 bill, he was the architect of the war that brought the country back together in 1861-1865. That was no small task. This is another attempt to demoralize the country and the military by replacing the Grant, Hamilton, and Jackson. It could be considered TREASON. Only a Communist would consider removing any of people represented on OUR MONEY.

    I agree. Demoting Alexander Hamilton is part and parcel of Obama’s “fundamental transformation of America.” Obama’s goal is to erase the past, so that America’s history, one day, will begin with the Age of Obama. He wants to wash away our founding fathers, our unalienable rights, the Constitution, and the Enlightenment. All hail, King Obama!

    I agree! The only woman suited for the ten dollar bill is Bo Derek, a real “10” and who cares. Yetty Green deserves much better than the 10.00. If you died the richest woman in America you might want something bigger than a 10.00. Leave the soon-to-be-worthless paper alone! It has enough problems without changing the faces on it. If it works, don’t change it. Currently it’s all good for spending. Obama, I’m counting down the days!

    Andrew Jackson held the Union together in the 1830’s when South Carolina threatened to secede. He did it by the strength of his personality and the fact that the “nullifies” knew he would come to South Carolina and “hang them from the first strong oak tree” he saw. At that time the federal government was much weaker and a civil war likely would have resulted in at least 2 separate countries – maybe more. Jackson certainly had faults, and he is not on the $20 because of his monetary policy. He is honored because of his commitment to the United Stares of America – a country that, without Jackson, may not exist today as we know it.

    Leave Alexander Hamilton on the bill. He was an honorable man. When he was pushed into a duel with Aaron Burr, he fired his gun into the ground because he didn’t want to kill anyone. Aaron Burr shot to kill because he wanted to get even.

    Good point. And true, he fired into the ground.

    Instead of removing Alexander Hamilton – an outstanding Founder – from the $10 bill, we should remove Andrew Jackson from the $20. Jackson was mostly a war-mongering scoundrel and a racist to Blacks and Indians.
    We should get “JACK OFF”.
    And besides, the $20 bill has become more relevant than the $10, and a more fitting place for a great women.

    The idiot who wrote this doesn’t appear to know much about history. Hamilton was instrumental in helping to create our system of govt. Those dead presidents that were mentioned were responsible for creating our republic. FDR is already on the dime, and that’s just fine.

    With inflation over the long haul averaging about 3% for 100 years a $10, $20 or $50 dollar bill won’t buy what it used to. The simplest way to solve this issue is to give people more options to spend their money. CREATE A NEW $25 BILL and reserve the picture for famous women. That way the picture can be changed in the future to honor others. This has been similarly done with presidential quarters and quarters honoring every state.

    Hamilton was a very special person, ages ahead of the time he was born, so he deserves to stay on that bill forever. But I confess that it would be nice to see Mr. Obama in the $50 bills, because he achieved to give affordable healthcare to millions of Americas that seems hopeless. He also has the character to face the selfish republicans that only support the rich.

    Does anyone think that Lewd will reverse this outrageous decision?

    Lewd is a political hack, and that’s why Obama hand picked him. The Treasury Secretary wears no clothes.

    THE WOMAN ON THE TEN SHOULD BE JACK LEW.
    THE COMMUNISTS WANT HAMILTON OFF THE TEN FIRST, THEN IN GOD WE TRUST NEXT.
    IF YOU WANT TO DO WOMEN JUSTICE A TEN SPOT WON’T DO IT.
    PUT THEM ON THE $100,000 BILL. REMOVE WILSON.
    LET US TALK ABOUT WOMEN’S ISSUES.
    VIVA EL TRUMPO. VIVA CHRISTO REY.
    SHE WAS WALKING WITH HER FATHER.
    THE DYING WORDS OF A 32 YEAR OLD GIRL SHOT IN THE BACK BY AN ILLEGAL INVADER CRIMINAL. HE WAS PROTECTED BY SAN FRANCISCO. HER LAST WORDS WERE HELP ME DADDY.
    SAN FRANCISCO AND ALL COMMUNIST SANCTUARY CITIES MUST PAY. THE DOJ MUST PAY. THE OBAMANISTAS MUST PAY.
    YOU CAN SEE DAD IS RECOVERING FROM AN EARLIER STROKE. NOW HE HAS A BROKEN HEART ALSO. SHE WAS WITH HER FATHER TO GIVE HIM A HAPPY DAY. JUST LIKE WHEN THEY USED TO WALK HAND IN HAND WHEN SHE WAS LITTLE.
    NOW WE HAVE A GOVERNMENT THAT BREAKS THE LAW. ENCOURAGES TERRORISM IN COMMUNIST SANCTUARY CITIES. IS OPENING UP NEW DRUG ROUTES FROM CUBA. IF THAT WAS A BLACK GIRL SHOT BY A WHITE JUNKIE ON PSYCHO DRUGS, ATHEIST, CRAZY WITH A CONFEDERATE FLAG THE ENTIRE NATION WOULD BE ON FIRE.
    THE SADDEST PART OF THIS HEART BREAK IS DADDY COULD NOT MAKE IT BETTER FOR HIS LITTLE GIRL. ALL THAT WAS LEFT WAS JUST A KISS GOOD BYE.
    GOOD AMERICAN CITIZENS ARE BEING HUNTED IN THEIR OWN LAND. TIME TO READ AND LIVE BY ALL THE TEN COMMANDMENTS.
    SADLY MY ADVICE TO LAW ABIDING CITIZENS IS BUY MORE GUNS. THIS GOVERNMENT WILL NOT HELP YOU. THEY HAVE OTHER PLANS FOR THE TAKEOVER.

    I enjoyed reading this article, and wondered why I hadn’t heard of some of the ‘candidates’, so it was interesting to learn something about them.
    I do think it is time to bring back a larger bill than the $100. Inflation (well, money printing) has eroded away much of the value, so we need a larger bill.

    It’s a pity Wall Street Journal Financial Courses didn’t exist at the time of Seysey’s. Probably he wouldn’t have sold Manhattan.
    As for Hetty Green, if the condition to be a billionnaire would be to eat 15 cent pies every day, I would prefer to be not very rich and eat High Cuisine food every day.

    Leave the paper money alone. There is NO woman who was/is equal to the people portrayed on our paper money now. But…
    If there is a place for Obama, it would be on the new $3 bill, for obvious reported reasons.
    In the 1800s, $4 gold coins were made for a couple of years, and the reported recipients were reportedly ladies of the night in Washington, D. C. Who could be more fitting on that new $4 bill than Monica Lewinsky?
    As for FDR and the dime… when the first dime was issued, in 1946, it could purchase more than what one dollar buys today.
    Tell left wing Lew to forget it.

    As devalued as our currency has become by the socialistic spending of our political servants we might as well put “Mickey Mouse” on our currency! The reasoning to change our currency is right in line with all of the rest of the socialist thinking.

    Another stupid idea coming from the obummer administration. The men pictured on our money should be left on the denomination from which it started. As the comic said we don’t need no stinking woman desecrating our currency. We are not a monarchy yet…

    No president who blatantly abuses the laws, does not abide by our own country’s U.S. Constitution, continually abuses his powers, and ignores AND bullies Congress should NEVER have their face on any U.S. currency.
    Why should America AND AMERICAN citizen’s celebrate a law-breaker by putting his/her face on money?!
    Our country is in worse shape today, and has been, under his administration. I have NEVER seen the likes of this kind of government corruption we have today: lying, cheating, extreme cover-ups, and over-spending.
    God help us and America.

    Duh! FDR is on the dime! They can’t all be on bills. There’s only so many currency designs (unless we’re going to do to the front sides what we’ve been doing to the back sides of quarters lately–good luck picking out counterfeits in all that). And while Jefferson and Washington are certainly justified in being on currency, with the limited number of denominations can we really justify having them on TWO currencies?
