  • Abraham Lincoln is already on the five dollar bill.

    The penny is useless. You can't really use the penny for anything and there is too much of it. If we got rid of the penny (or at least the making of it) we could make sure we don't have inflation. In the future, inflation will be a big problem. We should be like Canada and start early to make sure we won't have inflation. There isn't really a use for the penny. That is why we should get rid of it, or at least stop the making of it.

  • Pennies are too expensive.

    I can't believe that pennies cost more to make than they are worth. The U.S. Mint spent $135 million just on pennies, but all the pennies are worth only $90 million, so the government lost more than $60 million in making pennies. But a penny is worth 1 cent, so it is almost nothing to me.

  • It Is Costly

    It is more money to make a penny that it is worth, pennies are 1.7 cents to make and everyone knows they are only worth 1 cent. That is stupid that it costs the government more to make a penny then it is worth. They also waste time and energy.

  • They are too expensive

    Of course, spending $0.017 to make a coin that’s worth only $0.01 isn’t necessarily a bad idea, because coins are reusable. In theory, a single penny could be used for hundreds, thousands, or even millions of transactions before it drops out of circulation. However, this only works if the coins actually do circulate – and pennies, as noted above, often don’t. They’re so hard to use that they end up stuffed in jars or abandoned on sidewalks.

  • Um just because

    They cost to much to make i mean who is gonna pay over the amount they made and still have to make more. Also it takes to long to make them they are terrible for the environment too. So I say we should go ahead and get rid of pennies

  • Pennies are now useless

    You can’t buy anything with a penny anymore and it costs way too much to make a penny than it’s worth. Also, just because it honors Lincoln doesn’t mean we couldn’t use a coin that has some worth. Finally, it often takes more time to find the tiny coins than it’s worth.

  • Get rid Of the Penny

    The U.S. Mint made 5 billion pennies in that year. That means it cost more than 120 million to make 50 million worth of pennies. What A waste of money. You can't buy anything with a penny. You can't even buy a penny with a penny it cost 2.4 cents to make a penny.

  • Why get rid of a penny it is useful ?

    The penny is not useless because if you are at a store and what you have to pay is $5.03 you can you it .If you want to get rid of the penny why you just never use pennies and the people that what to use pennies should. Why would you want to get rid of a penny? If you need a cent to make a dollar use a penny. Why get rid of it if it helps you everyday?

  • It would be rude to Lincoln!

    The only money that Lincoln has is the penny if we get rid of it, it'd just be disrespectful, wouldn't it? #savethepenny #morewordsneeded #pennyalltheway need more pennies ya'll! Save to charity ya'll! #saynotoeliminatethepenny #whyamidoinghashtags #15morewords #hashtagsarecool okay, just..Say no :(. Have a nice day! We need pennies, ya'll! Pennies give you good luck! :)

  • The importance of a penny

    Iowa has a tax of 1.7% how would we make that .7 if we have no pennies? Does that mean business tax price will go up? Or will the state tax go up all in one? Which will both be a bad thing because people now complain about taxes. Again, for stores how would they come up with the extra change they use? Or fundraisers that rely on change.

  • The Penny is Very Important.

    To Americans the penny shows a sense of pride for our sixteenth president, Abraham Lincoln. A lot of Americans don't like change and would rather stay to their age old traditions. Plus, pennies keep prices cheaper, if you want to buy something that is 97 cents, but there are not pennies. The price will round to a dollar. Also, small but important charities will not have as much money, because they depend on small change donations. Fundraisers like Pennies for Patients, are charities that rely on penny donations for money to help the people the charity is for. Also, if the penny is to much to make our government should just find a different metal to make them with.

  • Why do it!?

    First thing, ALL of the prices that used to be in between 5 cents, would go up...Do we really need more expensive items in stores? Also, wouldn't that be a bit offensive to Abraham Lincoln?

    He's done a lot for Americas society, wouldn't it be disrespectful to just take him off? Also for charities that raise money, would people be willing to donate 5-10 cents instead of there pennies?

  • We need a 1 cent coin!!!

    Why would we get rid of the penny? If something cost 99 cents, and you paid a dollar, you should get that 1 cent back in change! It would be much easier to just leave the penny is the system.
    If it costs more to produce a penny, than the penny is worth, make it out of a cheaper metal, don't get rid of it altogether!

  • No we should not get rid of it

    No, I don’t think we should get rid of the penny. Why get rid of it when it is useful? The penny, like others have said, come in handy in certain situations. For example, if you need to pay $10.02, you can easily use two pennies along with a 10 dollar bill. Another way pennies are useful is if you need a penny to simply make a dollar. Pennies along with other spare change is also used to donate a tip or give a penny for charity types of things. Pennies are used in many ways and used everyday, so there is no point in getting rid of them.
