Kill the US $1 Dollar Bill with The US $1 Dollar Coin here in America!!!
0 have signed. Let’s get to 500!
I want both houses of Congress(Senate and House of Representatives) to replace the US $1 dollar bill with the US $1 Dollar coin. Take the old $1 dollar bill out of circulation. Everyday we don't do this, is waste of tax payers' money on the old $1 dollar bill that has outlive its usefulness.
I would also like to demand that we stop minting pennies and get them out of circulation and I want the US $2 dollar bill replaced with a new $2 dollar coin.
"Sixty-one percent of Americans back a switch to the dollar coin when they learn about the savings. That is one reason why Congressional advocates for responsible government spending, such as Senator John McCain (R-AZ), Senate Budget Chairman Mike Enzi (R-WY), and Representative Robert Pittenger (R-NC) and Congresswoman Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) have introduced legislation to implement at least $57 billion in cost savings throughout the federal government, including eliminating the dollar note and replacing it with the more sustainable and efficient dollar coin, through the USA Act.
It is important to recognize that this change in our dollar currency is long overdue. By one estimate, Congress has already missed out on over $2.6 billion in savings by not converting to the coin back in 2011. The missed savings grows larger every day, despite repeated calls from Congress' own budget watchdog, the Government Accountability Office (GAO). Over the past 25 years, the GAO has urged Congress to make the switch ten times due to the billions the federal government would save."

Every other industrialized nation has made the switch its time for America do the same thing. Dollar coins last 30+ years while a dollar bill only 2-4 years and dollar coins are recyclable because they can be melted down and mint new coins.
The recent COINS ACT(The Currency Optimization, Innovation, and National Savings) also introduced making the Nickel cheaper to produced and stop minting pennies for the next 10 years. So I am in favor of replacing $1&$2 dollar bills with dollar coins, making the nickel cheaper to mint and stop minting pennies.
