Pennies are seriously hurting the U.S. economy. We need to band together and take action, do what is best for our country. Everyday, the U.S. is wasting money printing pennies that are, in the big scheme of things, worthless. What can you afford with a penny? Nothing. And yet America is wasting money every day to print pennies. Banning pennies would not affect charities or have a negative impact on the economy, in fact, the economy would only benefit. Canada did it, France did it, the Netherlands did it. When will we open our eyes and see the solution right in front of us? Join the cause. Ban pennies.
