Why is the Obama Administration trying to dump Alexander Hamilton from the ten dollar bill

Whatever happened to tradition? Why is the Obama Administration trying to dump Alexander Hamilton from the ten dollar bill? just to put a woman on it? Stop the phoney stuff....we need the real stuff.
I am a feminist - as you all know - but Alexander Hamilton was our FIRST Secretary of Treasury, and created our financial system. He is a huge part of our American history and tradition can be very important. What is bad is when there is the phoney stuff -- and putting a woman on the ten dollar bill is not going to solve the real problems for women in the work place. (We women just are not that dumb that we fall for this one!)
And here is a good place to start -- the White House. Did you know that there is a pay gap in the Obama White House between men and women? If the Obama Administration really wants to help women and promote them -- how about getting rid of that pay gap for women at the Obama WHITE HOUSE!! How about just some EQUAL PAY for WOMEN at the WHITE HOUSE?
A picture of a woman on a piece of currency is not going to give self respect - equal pay, and equal opportunity to jobs will.
Read this article from the Washington Post:
"Male-female pay gap remains entrenched at White House
The average male White House employee currently earns about $88,600, while the average female White House employee earns about $78,400, according to White House data released Tuesday. That is a gap of 13 percent...." http://www.washingtonpost.com/…/dbc6c088-0155-11e4-8fd0-3a6…

PS The White House's excuse for the unequal pay is that the men have the better (more senior) jobs that pay more....ah...how about giving women the good jobs? There are lots of capable women. This White House excuse is HORRIBLE. By Greta van Susteren of FoxNews
