Comments:The Do-Not-Call list was established to address taxpayer concerns with commercial interests intruding in the home life. This was done at the bequest of the taxpayer. Proposed changes to the implemented system are not in concert with the Taxpayer desires. I am one who does not want phone calls from any commercial interest - unless I solicit it ( i.e. I specifically ask for information about a product). And any communication should only be directly related to the request. If I inquire and a response is provided - I do not want any otgher communication. A pre-recorded message is exactly what I was trying to avoid! By definition, a pre-recorded message does not answer any specific question I may have asked. A pre-recorded message should be submitted to me via the US Postal system. That way I can evaluate what is truly said and being offered..... As a taxpayer, I recpectfully request the Do-Not-Call List not be changed to allow these pre-recorded messages. Having submitted all my phones to this list, I am now a target for exactly what I was wishing to avoid. If any changes are to be made, I request the so-called charities be included ... I started receiving considerably more calls from organizations saying they were eligble. None offered anything I was interested in - especially consider the time they called.
