Hey America, want to save $13.8 billion over the next 30 years? Get rid of your dollars.  Eliminating the dollar bill in favor of the coin would save $13.8 billion over 30 years, says the consumer group Council for Citizens Against Government Waste (CCAGW). At a Capitol Hill briefing on Monday, the group said printing dollar bills may be cheaper than minting coins, but they last only about four years compared with 30 years for a coin.  What do you think?  Should we stop printing in favor of coins?  Connect with me on Face Book.
