Because the slippery slope actually started a long time ago and the country caves to practically any demands nowadays, no matter the cost, how absurd those demands might be, or what the negative long term effect to the country will be (speaking in general, not specifically about this particular story).

I would imagine there would have to be something to easier to do than resizing the different kind of bills. That would probably be the worst approach to fixing the problem.

Even doing something simple like making a small, v-shaped nick on the top of each bill would make it easy to feel what kind of bill it is without having to change ATM's, cash registers, etc.

They could just make more coins, which are different sizes. Like a $5 coin and a $20 coin. As well as producing more $1 coins. But that would be a pain as well.

Keep the same bills and have a machine punch a hole at different locations on the bill for different amounts.

What would prevent someone from punching a $5 hole in a $1 bill? That's the problem with anything other than actual size.

Then the bill would have two holes in it. That should be pretty easy to detect.

expect people could rip off blind people by putting extra holes in the bill.


unless of course they made $100 bills have one hole, $50 bills 2, $20 3, ect... I mean who would want to make a bill worth less.

My idea was to have only one hole in the bill. The placement on the bill would signify the value. If a bill has more than one hole don't accept it.

It would be a lot less likely that a cashier would have a hole punch sitting around in case a blind person walked in though. Right now they'd just have to hand the blind person a $1, tell them it's a $10, and pocket the extra $9.

Honestly, I don't see the point in changing money. If you're blind, you should just use a debit card since they can be used almost anywhere now. Someone can still rip off a blind person who's using a card, but at least there'd be a record of it for them to see later.

Even if they needed to use cash, it wouldn't be too hard to get a system in place. For example, if they carried nothing but $5 bills in their wallet, it would be impossible to be ripped off when they get change back.
