Obama Administration Putting Gun Nut on $20

But it is 4/20/16 New York Times:
WASHINGTON — The Treasury Department will announce on Wednesday afternoon that Harriet Tubman, an African-American who ferried hundreds of slaves to freedom, will replace the slaveholding Andrew Jackson on the center of a new $20 note, according to a Treasury official, while newly popular Alexander Hamilton will remain on the face of the $10 bill.

Other depictions of women and civil rights leaders will also be part of new currency designs.
This is a twofer for Democrats; puting a black woman in place of an Indian-killer.

As someone mentioned elsewhere, wait until they find out she was a gun-toting Republican.

So, they're removing the slave-owning, Indian-genociding founder of the Democrat Party, and replacing him with a gun-toting Republican...

Don't forget that Andrew Jackson was also against central banks. Putting him on a Federal Reserve Note is like naming a divinity school chair after Christopher Hitchens.

On another note, what woman in US history had done more for freedom than Tubman? I honestly can't think of one. I'd say that the bondage she fought against was far more serious than the one fought by Susan B. Anthony.
