Congress has authorized the United States Mint to begin replacing the costly metals used in coins with steel. The spiraling cost of copper, zinc, and nickel have escalated to the point where it cost more in processed metal than what the coin was actually worth.
A similar measure was also introduced that would replace the President with a interactive telepromter, mainly because the current occupant in the White House isn’t worth a dime.
The first measure passed, the second motion will be sent to a committee for further evaluation.
The use of steel in coinage was supported by all 435 members since ‘steal’ was a closely associated word they were already familiar with when concerning currency.
Congress also will be addressing the cost to print a dollar and has investigated the use of 'plastic dollars' in the future.
