Comments:Please do NOT allow the telemarketers to resume making calls, especially with pre-recorded messages. The "Do Not Call" registry has been working very well and has accomplished its original goal. A "loop hole" should not be allowed for big business to once again win over the common people's wishes. If they are using one of the excuses of lost jobs as a reason to resume calls, pre-recorded messages will not be their salvation. In addition, that industry should not receive special treatment for job losses over the rest of the U.S. industries and people who have also lost jobs and have to find other ways to make themselves whole. Irritating people at home on our family time with useless phone calls is a big problem and should not deserve a break. For once, the common people have won a privacy issue over business, please do not take it away from us. Thank you for your time.
