Comments:I strongly object to any increase in telemarketing calls. My family members and I still get lots of unsolicited telemarketing calls even though we have repeatedly registered with the do not call list. I receive them at night, My family members and I get them on our cell phones. We incur expense when we are subjected to these unsolicited calls. Having a business relationship does not mean we want unsolicited calls trying to sell us stuff. Consumers should be required clearly , unambiguously elect to opt in to receive such telemarketing recorded messages. They are also the most irritating of all messages. The Idea of permitting this to take place is appalling and very upsetting. Pro-business interests are always seeking to erode consumer and individual rights. This is the tip of the iceburg and should not be permitted. Whoever thought up this proposal should be fired.
