http://www.cbsnews.com/news/did-the-broadway-hit-save-hamiltons-spot-on-the-10-bill/ This morning the US treasury department released the news that Harriet Tubman will replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill. Over the next few years leading up to the 100th anniversary of the women's right to vote a $10 bill with Susan B Anthony and a $5 bill with Eleanor Roosevelt will be released as well. Do you think these were good choices? If not what other Americans would you like to see on paper money? Personally I like the idea. If I had my choice though i would like to see an inventor like Tommy Edison or Henry Ford on US paper money

I'm glad to see Harriet Tubman and more awesome ladies on the currency. It's especially poetic since Harriet Tubman use 20$ to buy her parents freedom. How unfortunate that she has to share the bill with a slave owner.
I do not want to see Edison or Ford on anything though Edison stole other people's work and was so ruthless in business that he pushed for the first person executed using the electric chair be shocked with alternating current just so he could try to say ac was more dangerous than dc.
And we all know that Ford was an outspoken anti-Semite. he also expanded his business into South America where he was such a great employer that he "forgot" to pay his workers and made them work under such horrible conditions they rioted.
I find that actually learning about the people you want to put up for admiration helps a lot in these situations. You should try it some time.3

Yes I fully support it. That monster Andrew Jackson should not be honoured.
A woman, especially a Black woman who has done so much for the US deserves praise. Putting her face on the bill that is used most is a sign of great respect for her actions.4
