Opinion: We should feature national accomplishments on the backs of our dollar bills. The $1 could be the Constitutional Congress, and then, for example, some of the others could have Lewis and Clark, Iwo Jima, or the first moon landing.

If there was a bill with the Iwo Jima picture on it I would frame it and hang it up in my bedroom

Isn't that what the state quarters kinda did? Makes more sense to do that than make up huge lists for paper money..

Typical government, worrying about who's picture goes on a worthless piece of paper. If they'd just put a dollar sign on it and make it worth something would be nice.

I would keep Washington on the $1, but the others I wouldn't mind changing to important events.

The backside, not the front. The people would stay, but the buildings would be replaced.

And the Battle of New Orleans, why don't we put that on the $20?

Would you put that in our top six greatest achievements? Because we only have six bills.

I think we don't need to just have one person per bill just rotate we could make lists of people who deserve why don't we give them all a chance to be on it. Essentially make it like stamps

Not a lot of women in your list. In fact, your list is all white men. That's the complaint of the current imagery.

Keep the people, Tubman included, where they are on the front. And if the back ends up being a problem, just be sure to draw in Sacajawea. :)

I have absolutely no idea if that's spelled correctly.

Not a bad idea Except many arguments would be brought up about what achievements deserve to be on it.

And, once and for all, the cost of changing the design is COMPLETELY MEANINGLESS.

People kept saying it would cost too much on other polls and I just wanted to settle it clearly.
