Hamilton Fans Don't Want Him Replaced On The $10 BillPlay
Since the U.S. Treasury announced plans last summer to feature a woman on the $10 bill, there’s been a debate over who that woman should be. There’s also been a debate over whether Alexander Hamilton, whose portrait is featured on that bill, should be the one replaced instead of another figure on another bill.
Now, the fans of the megahit Broadway musical “Hamilton” are lobbying to keep Hamilton, founder of the Treasury, on the currency. Bloomberg Gadfly columnist Mike Regan explains the debate to Here & Now’s Meghna Chakrabarti.
