Many Americans are aware of prior talk regarding adding Harriet Tubman to the $20 bill. As noted by CNBC, the Obama administration was reportedly in favor of the aforementioned alteration. However, Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin recently engendered liberal outrage by stating that replacing Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman isn’t a subject of focus.
Better Things To Worry About Than Harriet Tubman
First and foremost, Mnuchin is right to not prioritize placing Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill. This is not racism or sexism. This has nothing to do with Harriet Tubman being a black woman. We as Americans simply have better things to worry about.
Since Americans are dealing with collapsing healthcare, astronomically high taxes, chaotic rioters, and more, placing Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill is of least importance. The needs of the American people should always trump identity politics.
The people of this nation need affordable healthcare, lower taxes. Illegal immigration, although it has decreased considerably, is also still a pressing issue. Later this month, Congress will have to come up with a budget to fund the wall, otherwise America will be faced with a potential government shutdown.
The Truth About Harriet Tubman On The $20 Bill
There is no legitimate reason for placing Harriet Tubman on the $20. Liberals and so-called progressives state that it’s time to have a woman of color on currency, as opposed to all white men. Why? Upon removing feelings and identity politics from the equation, the case for replacing Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman disappears.
Obviously Harriet Tubman will continue to go down in history has someone who made monumental sacrifices and contributions in America. However, leaving U.S. currency as is is the wise and most economically sound decision. How much will it cost this nation to put Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill? America is already trillions of dollars in debt. The last thing we need is more unnecessary spending.
Liberals, Harriet Tubman, and Identity Politics
Sadly, liberals are infamous for using minorities, people of color, or their other perceived victim groups as tokens. The same progressives who believe Harriet Tubman should replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill are the ones who cheered or turned a blind eye to the white liberal who assaulted a black Trump supporter.
Identity politics and radical leftism cannot prevail. Fixing what is not broken makes no sense. If Andrew Jackson remains on the $20 bill until the end of time, nobody will be worse off for it. However, if healthcare continues to collapse, if Americans continue to lose money to high taxes, countless harmful offshoots will follow. Liberals need to wake up and focus on the aforementioned issues that really matter.
Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill can wait…perhaps indefinitely.
