Idiots who sponsored this bill should be recalled....but at least it did not pass!

http://bottomline.msnbc.msn.com/_news/2 ... -call-bill

Rep. Lee Terry got the hint. The robo-calls bill is dead.

The bill sponsored by Terry, R-Neb., (H.R. 3035) would have allowed “robo-calls” to your cell phone — even if you didn’t give a company permission to contact you at that number.

Consumer groups made a lot of noise in the hope that Congress would kill the bill. They call it a dangerous proposal that could lead to more nuisance calls.

Supporters of the “Mobile Informational Call Act of 2011” include the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the Air Transport Association, as well as groups that represent bankers, mortgage lenders, college loan programs and debt collectors.

Just what people need, their time taken up by robo calls. Glad it was taken down.
