" How Gov't helped frequent fliers make a mint"

You should have titled it, how the TAXPAYER helped frequent fliers make a mint.

The tax payers paid the shipping on the boxes of coins that were quickly turned back in to banks, often unopened in the shipping boxes.

When you send in your tax check in January, just remember that.....

Another stupid government program.

Seen any dollar coins lately? Most businesses put them under the tray.....won't give them out, and have no coin section in the cash register to hold them. No one really wants them other than the government.

I haven't seen a dollar coin in 2 years. The post office stamp machine used to give them to you in change....now, they took that one out, and the new one takes credit cards. Only...no cash...no coins....no need for change.
