It’s time for the penny to buy the farm
If it costs 3 cents to mint a penny, why not do away with the penny?
I mean, after all, does it make sense? Or cents?
Of course, you realize this would mean our costs would go up. For instance, instead of something costing $1.03, now it would cost $1.05. But hey, just think of the possibilities. It could help pay for health care or even help reduce our national debt.
