Should the US Government continue to mint pennies?

Why do they even bother making pennies anymore? No vending machine I have come across uses this coin and almost no one ever wants to trade me pennies for other types of currency. Any one else feeling that the Feds should do away with all pennies?

I think they keep it around so the FBI can keep track of everybody because like they say, "If you've touched a penny, the FBI knows all about you." Also so people can put them on train tracks or in those turn a penny into a cool design at various rest stops. Otherwise i see no point.

I think we should aim for major deflation to fix the problem, cause yeah, they are kind of pointless right now.

The problem is that if you get rid of pennies, the nickel would become the "useless" coin. It's the lowest common denominator, it's bound to happen.

There's been talk for a while of getting rid of the penny. I'd be all for it. I just collect them in order to change them into dollars down the road.

Get rid of pennies, nickels and dimes. We don't need any of them. We'll continue to need quarters for another 15-30 years, but when the time comes, get rid of those, too!

I'm so sick of seeing "Buy this car now for only $19,999.99!!". Just round it up to the nearest dollar and stop this annoying advertising!

Me too, but that's actually an ingenious marketing scheme. Somehow people will be able to afford a $39,999 car and not a $40,000 car.
