The United States should eliminate the penny ASAP because it's useless and literally costs more to make than it's worth, amirite?

But finding a heads up penny makes my day :(

If we eliminate the penny, we wouldn't be able to make those cool flat pennies with those etchings! D:

Well, this conversation is pretty real. Seeing as how, it's on my computer screen, and the comments are threaded, and I can feel myself typing.

I think the profit from making Benjamins makes up for the penny's deficit. I think the real things keeping us in debt are government waste, and just maybe the several wars we are in.

Can we please just be like Europe and have tax included in our prices so it comes out to even numbers?! That's all I want from you America!

It was more expensive to make a penny when it was 100% copper. Now, it's a copper and zinc alloy, which is cheaper to make.

You don't know how many times a cashier has asked me for penny because they cant make change

A lot of transactions come out to fractions of a cent, in which case it's rounded to the nearest penny. So if there was no penny, it would just be rounded to the nearest five instead.

Or they might stop making stupid prices like $19.99 and just call it $20 instead of trying to make it sound cheaper.

@Ashvio They would probably just make it 19.95 instead

Even then prices will still be weird numbers after taxes. Probably the best way would just to be round everything up to the nearest 5 cents, and then they could donate all the extra money they make off that to charity or something. Everybody wins!
