Do Not Robocall
Remember the last minute Robocall nonsense that may be the reason Jim Walsh is still in Congress?
Well Congress is starting to do something about them:
The House Administration Subcommittee on Elections is considering whether political dial-a-voter messages ought to abide by the same do-not-call-list limits as commercial telemarketers. Lawmakers are concerned that some groups are using the calls to deliberately mislead voters and that the abuse could depress voter turnout.
The legislation “does not prohibit automated phone calls, but it gives Americans the right to choose not to receive them, just as they would any other solicitation,” Altmire said. “Why should political campaigns be specifically carved out from the do-not-call list when businesses across the country are required to abide by it?”
While it won't outlaw it, what it would do is make them significantly less effective and thus destroying the effectiveness and ruining the demand for them.
