Death to Pennies!

They make a good case, and I’m frankly without a counter-argument.

As additional evidence: I have a jar of change on my shelf that once in a while I use to recharge my metro card. It only takes a minute or so to drop several dollars of quarters, dimes, and nickels in the slot but the machines don’t accept pennies. Those continue to accumulate. Once in a while I’ll head to the convenient store one the corner to buy a single item in a pinch – paper towels, flour, a sponge – and will bring that jar with me. If there is NO ONE behind me in line I will try to pay as much in pennies as possible. But I’d prefer not to do that, which is why we should kill the penny.

Thoughts?

    So, Kill the Penny, Use more dollar coins, Prepare Abe for a hyperinflation denomination (I kid) and Bring on a VAT (while killing income tax). I’m pretty much on board at least for the debate.
