house Bill H.R. 3082

Should $20 Bills Printed After 2022 Feature Harriet Tubman?

Argument in favor

Andrew Jackson’s legacy of slave ownership and driving Native Americans off their land in the Southeast shouldn’t be celebrated on our national currency. Replacing Jackson with Harriet Tubman, a famous female abolitionist, is necessary in order to celebrate the abolitionist legacy.

Andrew Jackson was the President that moved native Americans off of their lands, which we know as the Trail of Tears. It’s time to stop honoring him and honor Harriet Tubman, a brave woman.

Andrew Jackson was a terrible brutal president who killed off the native population and never deserved to be on the 20 dollar bill. Replace him

Argument opposed

According to Treasury Secretary Mnuchin and the Bureau of Engraving and Printing’s spokeswoman, the final design for the Harriet Tubman $20 bill isn’t ready. Therefore, it’s unclear whether this bill’s requirements are practical or could be implemented on time.

Give it a rest, Andrew Jackson is a founding father and we must stay true to our founding members and principals. You can’t erase our past no matter how much you liberals want to. #MAGA

    I use the stamp already so... But I’m all in favor of changing the look of the currency. Frankly our money is ugly. Our money is so ugly that it acts as its own anti-counterfeit device. Look at Bermuda’s 2$ bill. It’s beautiful. Look at all of Kazakhstan’s bills. They are gorgeous. Even if we kept the bills green, we could still design them better. But god forbid we embrace change. Not that putting Harriet Tubman on the 20 is especially ground breaking despite the furor. She wouldn’t be the first woman on America’s currency. The Silver certificate from 1886 Features Martha Washington. If you include confederate currency, Tubman isn’t the first African American either. The Confederate $10 from 1862 depicts a slave picking cotton. (The Civil War was about slavery, y’all.) Anyway, our current currency is ugly. It’s a real pity that we didn’t keep up with the design aesthetics of the US silver certificates. That was when our money was really good looking. For example the $5 Silver Certificate from the 1896 Series is spectacular. Ah well. The penny wise pound foolish misers would whine that it was a waste of money to make our currency look good. Those are the same types of people that don’t want the embassies to buy art. 🙄

    It was approved already but delayed by Mnunchkin for some unclearly specified reason, although it Is certainly consistent the racist proclivities of trump-Barr Inc. So yes, make sure the treasury follows through and does what they were supposed to do in 2020. White Nationalists and the mostly all white Senate won’t like it. So I say, stick it to ‘em. Force the issue.

    Andrew Jackson was NOT a Founding Father (or mother!). People who think he was show how little Americans know of our own history He is an example of one of our worst historical figures.

    Andrew Jackson, a loathsome President who was responsible for the deaths of thousands of Native Americans, doesn’t deserve the dignity of being featured on any of our currency! Harriet Tubman, an abolitionist and women’s rights activist, is more than deserving of this honor.

    It’s important to honor our GOOD history, not glorify the bad. We should learn from our history and allow progress to happen. Harriet Tubman is a good person to put on the $20 bill as she is part of the good. Andrew Jackson represents a lot of bad. Time for us to catch up.

    Yes but it would be more appropriate for this change to take place in 2020 because that would be exactly 100 years in which women were granted the right to vote. Andrew Jackson was a racist so I want to see a change on the $20 bill.
