Secretary Lew's new signature unveiled

The U.S. Treasury has unveiled Secretary Jack Lew's new signature.

In case you don't remember, Lew's signature is horrible. Even President Obama joked teased him about it.

"I'd never noticed Jack's signature, and when this was highlighted yesterday in the press I considered rescinding my offer to appoint him. Jack assures me that he is going to work to make at least one letter legible in order not to debase our currency," Obama said in January.

It's official: Jack Lew's new signature

Fortunately, he's changed it.

This is how its going to look on U.S. notes, such as the dollar bill.

But should his signature be appearing on dollar bills at all?

Erin Burnett asks whether it's time to ditch the dollar bill in Tuesday's the number.
