On the money  
Part of the indoctrination we got in the 50s was that wonderful man of the people Andrew Jackson. Later we learned that he was a slave owner who uprooted more Native Americans than any other president. He definitely isn't the sort of person who should be on our currency. Here's a better idea.

There's another, less dramatic but even more relevant, reason for removing Jackson from our currency. Jackson was opposed to a federal banking system. His fight against this was as prominent an event of his presidency as the Trail of Tears. He would be totally opposed to his portrait on a Federal Reserve Note. In fact, if you really want to insult him posthumously, leave it on.

It's like putting Ayn Rand on a stamp (which we did).
