Yes because the idolatry of political leaders is bad.

Everybody idolatrizes the "founding fathers" and nobody finds it bad. Yet Roosevelt's role was at least as important.

Altho, if Jackson is to be on any denomination, the $20 bill is the one he should be on, as one of the stands he took during the Bank War was that there should be no bill smaller than a $20 bill.  At the time, the highest value coin minted by the U.S. was the gold Eagle with a face value of $10. In other words, he was against the use of paper money when specie coins could in theory do the job.

Adjusting for inflation, his position is that there should be no bill smaller than a $500 bill.

If you follow my posts here you would realize that I don't idolize the Founding Fathers and I certainly the 'cult' that surrounds them is very poisonous to American political discourse.

I didn't say you did. But since Founding Fathers are nearly-unanimously praised, that Washington and Jefferson are on mount Rushmore, then if we had to apply a fair treatment FDR isn't much "idolized". Of course, it also depends to how you define idolatry.

Actually, a $1000 bill if one uses the value of gold as a guide, but we don't have specie currency anymore.
