C'mon, American people, let us ram this down your throat, PLEASE!!!

WASHINGTON (AP) — American consumers have shown about as much appetite for the $1 coin as kids do their spinach. They may not know what's best for them either. Congressional auditors say doing away with dollar bills entirely and replacing them with dollar coins could save taxpayers some $4.4 billion over the next 30 years. 

Vending machine operators have long championed the use of $1 coins because they don't jam the machines, cutting down on repair costs and lost sales. But most people don't seem to like carrying them. In the past five years, the U.S. Mint has produced 2.4 billion Presidential $1 coins. Most are stored by the Federal Reserve, and production was suspended about a year ago.

So there you see the plain, simple, unvarnished truth in the paragraph above ... to quote ... "most people don't seem to like carrying them."  See, this is the problem for idiot-liberals. They are invulnerable to common sense plain language ... it's a mystery to them.

Anyway, they stopped making them?  Gee, I wonder why.  Mysteriously, this "news article" doesn't cover that important question.  If you're wondering what the obvious answer is (it costs money to store these white elephants.)  Click here  if you want an explanation.

The GAO's Lorelei St. James told the House Financial Services panel it would take several years for the benefits of switching from paper bills to dollar coins to catch up with the cost of making the change. Equipment would have to be bought or overhauled and more coins would have to be produced upfront to replace bills as they are taken out of circulation.

But after that we really start saving, right? Assuming you've taken everything into account ... like you must have taken everything into account when you started making the coins, right dingbat?

But over the years, the savings would begin to accrue, she said, largely because a $1 coin could stay in circulation for 30 years while paper bills have to be replaced every four or five years on average.More here:

So, you see, they're interested in saving you money ... it's for your own good. 

The same government that is putting us into debt to the tune of a trillion crisp per year ... the same government which hasn't even bothered to produce a budget for the last three years ... the same government printing money and crushing our currency (btw, inflation is a tax on you just as debt is a tax on you) ... that same government, ALL OF A KUFCING SUDDEN, is focused like a laser on "saving you money."  

And by the way, they'll spend whatever it takes to start saving ... you know why?  Because they're idiot liberals altruistic geniuses.

Oh yes, four billion over TEN YEARS - WOW!  Talk about a DEAL!

My thoughts?  I'm glad you asked. 

I'd have to say that the government is terribly saddened knowing that this four billion could be going to their buddies.  Think of it, more money to their buddies without raising taxes. 

And all YOU have to do is carry around these heavy coins in your pocket.  But you refuse ... you stupid American public rotten, greedy bastards.

Meanwhile, everyone has a change jar, right?  Why? To save money?  

Nay, it's to dump these gd coins off at the end of the day.  Then it's a big pain in the ass to cash them in ... not to mention losing 10% on the proposition.  Dudes, NOBODY LIKES COINS!

Hey, geniuses, the Klown has a suggestion, how much would be save by not minting pennies and nickels anymore?  Would the public like that?
