Ronald Reagan is surely smiling down on Congressman McHenry from God's right hand side. 
Congressman Patrick McHenry (R-NC) announced new legislation today, H.R. 4705, that would redesign the face of the $50 bill to include the likeness of our 40th President, Ronald Reagan. Indisputably one of transformative leaders of the 20th century, Reagan would have turned 99 years old this February.
"Every generation needs its own heroes,” said Congressman McHenry. “One decade into the 21st century, it’s time to honor the last great president of the 20th and give President Reagan a place beside Presidents Roosevelt and Kennedy.”
President Franklin Roosevelt’s likeness is on the dime and President John F. Kennedy is on the half-dollar.
“President Reagan was a modern day statesman, whose presidency transformed our nation’s political and economic thinking,” McHenry continued. “Through both his domestic and international policies he renewed America’s self confidence, defeated the Soviets and taught us that each generation must provide opportunity for the next.”
President Reagan would be replacing President Ulysses S. Grant on the bill. In polls of presidential scholars, President Reagan consistently outranks President Grant. In 2005, The Wall Street Journal conducted one such poll of bipartisan scholars which ranked President Reagan 6th and President Grant 29th.If any of you would like to Contact Congressman McHenry to maybe set up and campaign contribution, I highly recommend you do so!

I love the idea but would it be better to put Reagan on the 20? Andy Jackson murdered the Cherokees and was the first dirtbag democrat president. We should get him off the 20 and put Reagan there.

Sadly, this proposal will likely die a quick death. Progressive Liberals are in control at the moment, and they hate Reagan with a passion.

There was a proposal to put Reagan on the Dime years ago, but that was quickly snuffed out, and that was when the Republicans held both houses of Congress plus the Presidency! Even they don't want to honor Reagan in this way, it would seem.
