      Poll: Replace Dollar Bill with Coin?

      Poll: Replace Dollar Bill with Coin?

      Advocates of replacing the dollar bill with a coin say the move could save taxpayers over $13 billion over 30 years.

      Research groups were joined by Senator John McC ain today in supporting the change.

      A new report by the former chief economist for the Senate Banking Committee says savings come from the durability of coins, environmental savings, and increased benefits for the visually impaired.

      T he benefits to small businesses who engage mostly in low-denomination sales were also touted.

      Proponents argue change from low-currency to coins has already been made by every other industrialized nation.

      Tonight in the Daily Pulse we're wondering: Would you support replacing the dollar bill with a coin? Yes or no? Why or why not?
