WASHINGTON, DC - President Barack Obama issued an executive order today, directing US Secretary of the Treasury. Jack Lew, to replace George Washington with Harriet Tubman on the dollar bill.

Harriet Tubman (1822 - 1913) was a black abolitionist, humanitarian, and a Union spy during the American Civil War.

The new bill we be worth 64 cents, making it comparable to what a black woman earns, when compared to a white male's earnings.

President Obama issued the directive, stating that Hillary Clinton was to be the new face on the dollar bill, until she was found to be using a personal coffee cup while Secretary of State.
