Comments:I am extremely disappointed for you to even think of changing the rules for the "Do-not-call" list. I will determine to whom I speak, and I don't want to be bothered by my telephone ringing at all hours (as happened prior to the current "Do-not-call" rules). I believe the calls are an infringement to my right to privacy. If I desire information on whatever, I will obain my own data. I don't need someone to obtain it for me. When I want to buy something, I can always look through the newspaper ads to find whatever I need. Again, I don't need, nor desire, anybody to urge me to try a product that I don't want or need. As an elderly person, I think it is YOUR responsibility to insure that we are not bothered by these inappropriate actions. If U.S. companies want to take their business elsewhere...let them: however, a company exporting any jobs (including Telemarketing) outside the United States should be required to pay our government at least 90% of their profits!
