A Modest Proposal: Change to Currency to Honor President Obama

Back when I was a kid, with some frequency I heard the phrase "Phonier than a two-dollar bill." I was never sure of the origin of the phrase, but I knew it definitely carried with it a negative connotation. I always thought it a little unfair to Thomas Jefferson to have his portrait on a piece of currency that was not only associated with a form of deception and dishonesty, but was also devalued because it was constantly in and out of circulation and favor with the public. 

I would submit to you that now is the time to make a permanent change to the much-reviled and disdained two-dollar bill, the perfect opportunity to finally match the currency to the President who most clearly represents the phony $2 bill and its roller coaster favorability with Americans and their pocketbooks. Ladies and Gentlemen, it is time to place Barack Hussein Obama's portrait on the $2 bill. 

On the obverse of the bill, we could replace the picture of the signing of the Declaration of Independence with a picture of the President signing the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) into law. The caption below the picture could be changed to "If You Like Your Doctor, You Can Keep Your Doctor." I've included a mock-up below (all images copyrighted).
