Who’s face should be on the Trillion Dollar Coin?

July 30, 2011

Rep. Cantor poses for the Trillion Dollar Coin

Inquiring minds want to know.  Commenter Kris Smith provides the obvious-after-its-said answer:

Eric Cantor


[Update: Tom Hickey points out that Grover Norquist (in the comments and over at Marginal Revolution) has a strong claim to this honor.]

    This question was asked over at Tyler Cowen’s place. A commenter recommended Grover Norquist, and I seconded it. It’s really Grover that driving this whole thing.

    The stamp should say “Conservatives can remain irrational longer the the US can remain solvent”

    ha ha that’s awesome. The Mint isn’t supposed to issue coins with likeness of a living person, but sice Congress gave Secretary discretion as to coin design, I don’t think there’s a law against an Eric Cantor coin. :o)

    Maybe a likeness with his mouth open?

    What a shame to the glorious last name shared by Greg Cantor…
