No. If George Wahington only made the $1, Reagan dosn't deserve the 10 or 20.

I think he should. George Washington is on the the $1 dollar bill because he was the 1st president. He's got the number 1 thing going on. [:D]

Yes, he should! He did many good things for the USA, both him and Nancy are responsible for finally addressing the drug problem, whether you want to agree or not, they had a seriously POSITIVE impact on the USA...then there is good ol Billy Bob, I think he should be on the $3.00 bill we have all seen floating around, you know, the one where he is on the front "blowing" a whistle.

I say "No". Even though I truly believe he was one of the greater (if not the greatest) contemporary presidents, the fact he's already had (1)a Nuclear Aircraft Carrier, (2) a major airport, and (3) the largest (physically) sized government building in Washington bear his name is enough. The far-right Reaganites (I'm not far right, but I am a Reaganite)have had their way already. Enough is enough.

RE: Shoud Reagan appear on the $10 or $20 bill?

I think Haynes Johnson’s book “Sleepwalking Through History: America in the Reagan Years� did an excellent job of relating the truth behind the Reagan mystic. As one reviewer noted:

“Johnson has a hard-hitting and incisive critique of the lax, hands-off approach Reagan took to handling the ills of his age. Its not news that the Iran-contra affair further soured respect for government, that economic policies designed to make the rich richer also made the poor much poorer, that a pattern of denial and deception in Reagans staff was the standard approach to dealing with the media or the Congress. Johnson admits Reagan’s power as a President, but is sharply critical of much of what he accomplished through that strength. Anyone strongly sympathetic with his legacy probably ought not to look at this book; it will anger you. Others who are interested should see it. You will not have the full story of the 80s by any means; Johnson is selective about what he discusses (neither Canada nor Lebanon are indexed at the end, and AIDS is discussed on one page). But on what he does cover, like the Iran-contra scandal, and junk bonds, Johnson is thorough. I picked up the book to review the Iran-contra affair, and its reporting satisfied me. Col. Oliver North had nothing but contempt for the members of Congress who challenged him on his lies and subterfuge; that contempt was validated by Reagan’s own contempt for laws he did not like or wish to enforce. (Johnson points out that Reagan appointed individuals hostile to the intent of the agency they were overseeing if he disagreed with what the agency was doing, like the Dept. of Education or the EPA.)�

Reagan was a skilled politician (i.e. actor) and an able mouthpiece for the far right, but with few if any substantive accomplishments, he rates very low compared to other presidents.
