Comments:I urge you not to allow this abominable form of clutter to invade on my life. The do-not-call list should apply to pre-recorded calls. To allow an exemption is a violation of the citizens that should not go forth. Yes, businesses have a right to do business, but there are, and should be, limitations placed on those rights. In this case, the right of the public not to have to endure this invasive nuisance far outweighs the right to engage in commerce that can be otherwise conducted. The point of the do-not-call list was to be able to avoid this type of invasion. If this exemption is allowed, it will be a clear message to the people that their government does not have their interests in mind. Any argument that the interests of business are being shortchanged hold virtually no legitimacy. All of these businesses can contact you through the mail or in other ways if you agree to it. The only reasonable argument that this type of contact should be allowed is the one that perceives federal government placed firmly in the back pocket of corporate America.
