EXTERMINATE the Penny

Let’s kill the penny.

Pennies cost in the neighborhood of 1.9 cents to make. Just… think about it. The U.S. treasury spends double what the penny is worth just making it. I’m going to turn this over to YouTuber CGP Grey, who explains why all of the pennies should just go jump in an active volcano. 

 

If we rid America of the penny, we could just round up or down when paying with cash. Paying with credit or debit can stay the exact same. It would save the government millions of dollars. 

I want to know what you think. Is it a good idea, or is it too un-American? Give it some thought and comment below! 🙂
