This is fantastic if it follows through. So far it has only been introduced but now is the time to call your congress critters and tell them to back this. This appears to be a serious return to the Gold Standard. This would be a very important more towards stabilizing our economy for the long term and return purchasing power back to the dollar. They keep talking about eliminating the Penny and the Nickle because they are useless, well guess what? this would return their value instead which would be the RIGHT thing to do!
