Of course not, in fact, I want them to become even more "business like"- which they seem to be considering to hold down cost and cover their expenses.  I just hope they are charging these hopeful politicians, who are or will be using their services to sort and deliver these NOT real informative junk mail pieces, a good price - meaning covering all the cost, then some.

Just wait until we get into the home-stretch of this election cycle - incumbents and others running to defeat them will begin to call incessantly, most robo-type - where you cannot talk back - trying to sell you their hype.

They will also keep the postal service in business with all the junk mail showing pics of themselves and their family; donkey or elephant in tow.

We shall see if this is any more effective than the "Do Not Call" list.


My Landline Provider is Comcast and they allow you to Login to Comcast and Block Phone Numbers - its a cumbersome process but it works in decreasing annoying calls

 

Comcast also offers Nomorobo Landline and Cell Phone Auto Robo Call Blocker - it also works fairly well

 

Do Not Call was a Joke but only because there were No Laws to allow Carriers to block these maggots from just deluging people with automated calls by automated computerized systems

 

There is still no new Enforceable Legislation because Incumbents in Congress DO NOTHING but work in re-election but this is a good first step

Feds Crack Down On Robocallers - Finally!

Message 7 of 7

Washington (CNN Business)The US government announced a nationwide crackdown on illegal robocalls on Tuesday, targeting companies and individuals who have collectively placed over 1 billion unwanted calls for financial schemes and other services, according to the Federal Trade Commission.

 

The joint action includes the states of Alabama, Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, and Virginia.
 
It comes as lawmakers in both chambers of Congress are preparing legislation that would expand the government's power to limit illegal robocalls. On Tuesday, a House subcommittee is expected to consider the Stopping Bad Robocalls Act. The bill directs the Federal Communications Commission to flesh out its rules making clear that robocalls may only be made to consumers with their consent.
 
In the Senate, the TRACED Act would expand the FCC's power to punish illegal robocallers by increasing the maximum fines that the agency can levy for each robocall and by extending the statute of limitations to three years, up from one.
 
Robocalls have become a major concern for policymakers as Americans have increasingly been subjected to unwelcome cellphone interruptions and, in the worst cases, fraud.
 
The telecom industry recently received clearance from the FCC to begin blocking robocalls by default, using technology that can screen out unwanted calls much like spam filters send junk email to a separate folder.
