Obama suggests he’s open to getting rid of the penny


President Barack Obama says it may be time to get rid of the penny.
The copper 1-cent coin has long been criticized for being costlier to mint than it is worth. And with Americans using pennies less and less, some have questioned why the government hasn’t stopped producing them.
Asked whether the penny should be nixed during an online chat sponsored by Google, Obama bluntly admitted, “I don’t know.”
“It’s one of those things where I think people get attached emotionally to the way things have been,” the president said. “We remember our piggy banks and counting out all the pennies and then taking them and getting a dollar bill or a couple of dollars.”
Obama added that the penny is a “good metaphor” for the larger problems facing the federal government.
“This is not going to be a huge savings for government. But anytime we’re spending more money on something that people don’t actually use, that’s an example of something we should probably change,” Obama said. “One of the things that you see chronically in government is it’s very hard to get rid of things that don’t work so that we can then invest in the things that do.”
But, he acknowledged, getting rid of the penny is not one of his administration’s highest priorities.

Hold on to all your pennies pre 1982. Any penny made during and before 1982, is actually worth 2.2 cents because it has 95% copper. With inflation metals rise and copper is one of them. If the penny is cut out of our currency, we will be able to melt the penny for its copper vaule, which could be worth anywhere from 5-10x its value. It's a great way to invest your dough, esp with the big potential payout

Same with pre 1964 quarters. I had like $20 in those quarters, went to the pawn shop and walked out with $500 cash.

This article is about getting rid of the penny....which means they will change the law on scrapping. Your Grampa is a smart man and now it is likely, more than any other time, the US might actually get rid of the penny. Also, Canada has just scrapped their penny for the same reason the US should.
