|Title:||Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, Request for Comment|
|CFR Citation:||16 CFR Part 310|
Comments:When I originally signed up for the National Do Not Call list (under the Telemarketing Sales Rule), the intent was to prevent unwanted calls from marketing and other organizations. I signed up to be included on this list with the good faith that an agency of the government of my nation would enforce the list's stated purpose. Now I find out that the same agency that is ostensibly protecting my interests would like to modify our agreement to permit some unwanted pre-recorded sales calls. In my understanding, that is contrary to the originally stated intent of the National Do Not Call list, and the agency that is chartered for the purpose of and claims to be protecting me is actually considering intentionally helping special interests to violate both the peace of my home and my trust of the government. Public servants are supposed to serve the public, not just entities with special access to officials. I vigorously and vehemently oppose any attempt on the part of any government agency to reneg on the original stated purpose of this Rule, and assert my desire that the proposed modification be rejected. Thank you for your attention.
