Comments:I'm extremely dismayed to hear the FTC is considering stepping back from the protection of the consumer. Of course, I don't understand the pressure that the companies of America hold over the FTC. Perhaps it's truly a political necessity for the FTC to bow to corporations in a clear strike against what consumers want and have asked for in the millions. However, I am one of the individuals, one of the consumers that the FTC is nominally supposed to represent. I, the consumer, strongly resent the proposed amemndment, which creates a loophole in the do not call list. I'm not alone. The Do Not Call list allowed consumers to clearly state their preference to not receive advertising through the medium of telephone. Millions of consumers stated this preference. Please continue to allow those millions of us to express that preference to marketers. Do not modify the original purpose of the Do Not Call list. Thank you.
