On April 21, 2016 Congressman Chuck Fleischmann joined his colleagues on the Congressional Bipartisan Task Force to Combat Heroine Epidemic, for a press conference outside of the U.S. Capitol.

It certainly looks like there is a "heroine" epidemic what with all these historic black women being put on our folding money.

“The U.S. Treasury’s decision to replace Andrew Jackson on the $20 bill is unnecessary. It is important, however, to remember this should not be considered a Harriet Tubman versus Jackson controversy. We are lucky to have a rich history of outstanding individuals who worked hard to make our nation great. Andrew Jackson will continue to be a pillar of that history and his legacy is one that will never be forgotten. He was a patriot, a Tennessean, and a president the common man could stand by,” said Fleischmann.

Andrew was definitely a President the common man could stand by as long as the man was a white man.
