Should America become a paperless economy in terms of money?
Debate Rounds (3)
The character limit is only 1000 and nothing about the resolution will be debated for this first round for of the lack of clarity. This means that there will only be 2000 characters for each debater to debate such a complex topic. This is clearly inadequate and, with the influx of new debaters, debates like this will continue unless you vote for me. 1000 characters is not the default, so the instigator must have knowingly changed it from 8000. Vote for me so that new debaters will realize that they must use appropriate settings. Debate is a competitive activity, and change won't occur unless the debater who uses poor settings looses. This is shown even in this debate, in the comments, it was recommended that the voting period be changed and it was not changed. Negate for change
I believe that instead of carrying around paper cash, it would be easier to make each person's license a scannable card of sorts. It would reduce issues of illegal immigrants who dont have identification and would keep people from spending past their means. If they cannot afford something with the amount of money on their card then they cannot get it.
Supershort DA- I can do this because there was no plan in the 1st round
Uniqueness- Tourism exists in the status quo, generating money (Over 56 Million International Visitors Spent 122 Billion - Departmet of Commerace
Link- Plan removes cash, which is a primary way for tourists to spend money. Tourists staying for a week couldn't get a drivers license.
Impact- Loss of tons of money in taxes and a hurt to the economy.
On the plan
Negate. There is no compelling reason for this plan. Also, negate for charcter limit
You need to get over the character limit and worry more about the relevance. None of your information has anything to do with why we should become paperless in terms of our economy. It seems to be all about inconvenience and leave facts that beg the question of relevance.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro's plan is not prima facia, since only people who have drivers licenses cold use money. The character limit is irrelevant.
