House Approves Do Not Call Registry

from the one-step-at-a-time dept

After just a little bit of back and forth political wrangling, it seems that members of the House of Representatives realized that the people who vote them into office hate telemarketers. So, it’s not a huge surprise that they’ve approved funding for a national “do not call” list by the overwhelming margin of 418-7. The opposition from the direct marketing folks is going to be fierce, but this battle may already be lost. What they should do is realize that if people don’t want to hear from them, they’re wasting their time and money anyway… A national do-not-call list means they can focus in on the suckers.
