Should Reagan replace Grant on the $50 bill?

March 2, 2010 |  6:14 pm

Reagan The Times' Richard Simon reports on an effort to place the likeness of Ronald Reagan on the $50 bill in place of Ulysses S. Grant's.

This is not the first attempt to fiscally honor the former president, who died in 2004.

Democrats objected to an earlier proposal to put Reagan on the dime in place of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. And Tennessee legislators didn't like a plan for Reagan to replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill.

You can find Simon's story here.
