Congressman Wants Ronald Reagan Put on $50 Bill


reaganA U.S. congressman from North Carolina wants the $50 bill redrawn to feature the face of former President Ronald Reagan. Republican Rep. Patrick McHenry wants Congress to require the U.S Treasury to replace former President Ulysses S. Grant on the bill. McHenry announced his bill Tuesday, and he has 13 Republican co-sponsors.

Grant was a union general during the Civil War who led the north to victory and later became the nation’s 18th president.

McHenry said Reagan transformed the nation’s political and economic thinking and argued that “every generation needs its own heroes.”

One of McHenry’s Republican primary opponents, Scott Keadle, said he admires Reagan too but accused McHenry of pandering to voters with the bill instead of focusing his work on the bad economy.

  1. Regan was seriously the last descent president we had and he was so much part of my youth and so while this sounds like a great idea but in the end of the day who pays attention to what they see on a dollar bill? Nobody really and so it probably is an election gimmick making people forget about the true problems like the economy and health insurance costs skyrocketing crippling every american family

  2. Ronald Reagan, aside from being the best U.S. President of the 20th century, was the biggest Oheiv Yisroel ever in the Oval Office.

  3. I too strongly second what Shmuel said. Ronald Reagan was the best U.S. President since at least Abraham Lincoln — both for American and for the Jews.
