Promote Lincoln to the $1 coin

Reduce the deficit and stop paying China

Pennies lose America $70M every year because it costs more to make them than they're actually worth. To add insult to injury, we're paying China ~$2M every for the zinc necessary to make them. 

But pennies aren't our only poor investment. Dollar bills only stay in circulation for 6 years on average. If we were to replace dollar bills with dollar coins, we would save ourselves $13 billion in supplies, labor, and printing costs over the next three decades. 

So let's promote President Lincoln's face to the dollar coin, and get rid of pennies and dollar bills. The total savings would equal over $15 billion in the next 30 years.
