Rumor has it Andrew Jackson is going to be removed form the bill in favor of a women.  Equal representation and everything.  I guess it’s no surprise they picked a populist president who fought the banks, the political machine, and exercised the will of the people; for the guillotine.

Nothing is wrong with equal representation, but I feel Jackson has done a lot more for the country than whoever they try to replace him with.  Take Hamilton off, or even Grant on the $50.  Schools teach more about General Grant torching the South than they do president Grant.  Jackson should remain a model president, and I worry removing him from common currency will relegate him to obscurity just like the other faceless presidents we’ve had.
