  1. Sounds like their needs to be the winds of change blowing. How much does it cost to produce a plastic card? How does that effect the industries supplying the minerals to produce coins? Giving it to the steel industry what are the repercussions of that. Not an easy decision. A signal to america to start living withing its means? I guess I will have to be less charitable with my pennies. :)
