Anybody interested in learning more about the uselessness of the penny and nickel, and just generally get smart in general, I'd suggest watching videos by vlogbrothers and scishow, or pretty much anything brothers John and Hank Green make. They update often and they're very interesting. Friendly tip to all :)

Pennies are worth 1 cent but cost two to make them. It's smart. Besides, he's on the five dollar bill anyways.

Or we could just add add more copper to the penny giving it back it's value... while we are doing that we could add silver back into nickels, dimes and quarters, then we could get rid of our terrible paper currency and use gold coinage.

adding actual copper makes them more expensive actually, they would have to make pennys out of steel to make the cheep enough to not lose money.

plus we dont need pennys or nickels anyway, they are useless

you're right about using more coin money, it lasts a lot longer than paper money
so we wouldn't be making as much of it......like in canada

The reason they want to stop the production of the penny(Congress, not Obama) is because it costs more than it is worth.

I don't think we should get RID of the penny, but we could do without producing more, at least for the time being.

Dude, we got an entire building dedicated to a large than life statue of him that will last for thousands of years. What ever advanced civilization that comes a long after we die will think we worshiped Lincoln as a god, taking away a pointless denomination doesn't matter.

I think they should take the nickel too. I honestly find any change under a quarter completely useless. I think most people would throw pennies in the garbage if it were socially acceptable. When they start to phase them out they should make recycle bin-like collection cans people can throw them in for charity.

A) Obama's only half black
B) The half that is black isn't even African American.

if it's any consolation it took until the dollar became so inflated a penny was useless before a brother got into office

At least he still has the $5 bill. Plus, there won't be any more stupid things costing $19.99. Now they'll all just cost $19.95.
