Comments:I am adamantly opposed to RIN 3084-0098. Our home privacy should be protected from unwelcomed calls. During the elections, some politicians chose the electronic phone messaging and it was extremely disruptive and invasive. I almost changed my vote as a result of one politician calling multiple times. The people that are affected the most are the elderly and the infirm. The effort to even answer the phone can be very hard on them and these calls can disrupt much needed rest. Is it possible that the marketers wanting this legislation are just too lazy to market in more honest and creative ways?
