In 1998, rapper P. Diddy introduced the nation to a new phrase. "It's all about the Benjamins, baby," he said, referring to $100 bills with the face of Benjamin Franklin.
A North Carolina congressman is pushing to get Ronald Reagan on the $50 bill.

Given the tough economic times, perhaps Diddy needs to update his song and aim for a smaller unit of currency.

And if Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., has his way, Diddy may soon be singing about "Ronnies," in honor of the nation's 40th president, Ronald Reagan.

McHenry has introduced legislation that would take President Ulysses S. Grant off of the $50 bill and replace him with Reagan.

"Every generation needs its own heroes," McHenry said in a statement. "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."

Franklin D. Roosevelt's profile is on the dime and Kennedy's is on the half-dollar

I think they should call the 50 dollar bills "Ronettes".

I like the change in looks once in a while. The currency we have now looks much better that the old 5s, 10s, 20s, etc.

Eh, don't see much of a point in this. If they want to create a $25 bill and put Reagan on it then fine. Don't start changing Presidents around or in a few years the libs will replace Washington on the $1 with Obama and Lincoln on the $5 with Nancy Pelosi.

They should make a 39.95 bill and put Reagan on it.

They'll be called pennies soon enough.
