The US Treasury is receiving a serious dose of girl power! Treasury Secretary Jack Lew announced that controversial president Andrew Jackson will be replaced by a woman on the $20 bill, instead of Andrew Hamilton on the $1o. Woo!
This is a huge victory for women all over the United States! Treasury Secretary Jack Lew will announce that the agency has made a groundbreaking decision, according to a source who spoke to CNN. The Treasury is no longer replacing Andrew Hamilton on the $10 bill, but instead definitely putting a significant woman on the $20 bill. Buh bye, Andrew Jackson!
Though it hasn’t been revealed who the woman replacing President Jackson on the $20 bill will be, it’s a “female representing the struggle for racial equality,” according to a government source who spoke to CNN Money. The incredibly exciting news continues a conversation that started in 2015, when Jack announced plans to switch up the $10 bill.
Millions were overjoyed by the fact that a woman would finally get her due diligence and be represented on United States currency. Of course, there was an equal number of detractors, if not more, who were incensed by the notion of replacing President Hamilton. That ire grew when everyone became obsessed with the Broadway show! Plus, many argued that there were no notable women who were presidents. Um, hello; Ben Franklin wasn’t a president and he’s on the $100 bill!
Getting rid of President Jackson is such a better choice. He’s widely despised for his insanely grotesque treatment of Native Americans. Remember, he is the person who enacted the Trail of Tears with the passage of the Indian Removal Act of 1830. How absolutely disgusting! If anyone should be dethroned from their place in United States currency, it should be him. Unfortunately, it’s not going to happen anytime soon. The government source said the change won’t take place for about 20 years. We can’t wait to see the deserving woman they choose!
